Description

The English alternative rock band presents its new album, ‘The 2nd Law’. The new work by the group made up of Matthew Bellamy, Christopher Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard is influenced by dubstep, marking an unexpected new step in their successful music career.

The members met during their stay at Teignmouth Community College and Coombeshead College in the early 1990s. They each played with different groups until 1994, when they got together under the name Gothic Plague, which they later changed to Fixed Penalty.

After winning a local battle of the bands, they decided to leave Teignmouth, quit college and their old jobs, and adopted what would be their definitive name: Muse. From then on, their career has been one continuous ascent to fame, boosted by critics and fans alike.

The band has got a very special relationship with Madrid: on November 28, 2009, a large number of cameras recorded the show they did in the capital to make the music video ‘Resistance’, and their concert at Vicente Calderón Stadium in June 2010 can be described as historic.
