Muse Plans to Release New Album Next October

Anthony Addis, the manager of English symphonic rock band Muse, revealed to Billboard today that the trio is back in the recording studio working on their sixth studio album, the follow-up to 2009’s highly successful The Resistance.

The band has been on the road in support of The Resistance since its release — they wrapped up their immensely profitable tour at the end of this summer with appearances at high-profile festivals like Lollapalooza, Glastonbury and Coachella.

Despite the constant touring, Addis said Muse has been writing material “constantly” on the road and has plenty of ideas for the new album, adding he doesn’t “know how it’s going to gel between them all” as they have mostly been writing individually. He also mentioned the album will potentially drop in October 2012.

No details about the album title or songs have been revealed yet. Addis made it clear he has not and will not listen to the music until Muse has it set in its final form.
