Muse has announced plans to begin recording their upcoming sixth album in September.
Speaking on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show, bassist Chris Wolstenholme revealed that the British rockers will head to the studio to record the follow-up to 2009’s The Resistance.
“September and October, that’s when we’re going to get into the studio to start writing the new album,” he said.
Muse will begin recording after headlining the Reading and Leeds festivals at the end of August. They have been touring for two years off of The Resistance.
“We’re always going to be the kind of band that want to get out and play live,” said Wolstenholme.
But the group is excited to head into the studio to being working on new material.
“People tend not to play new songs live any more,” he explained. “That’s why we want to get into the studio, make another album and then tour it.”
