Preview: Muse at The Brighton Dome, Brighton (23/03/15)


Muse. One of the biggest British Bands on the globe. But what have that powerful Devonshire three-piece been up to lately? New music apparently, as well as a little UK tour. And isn’t it exciting?

Winners of countless trophies, including the likes of a few Brits, NME and Grammy Awards, this band have headlined some of the biggest venues around the planet. It’s obvious that Muse are not to be sniffed at, with front-man Matt Bellamy classically trained on the keys.

Back in 2012, Muse wrote a rather anti-climatic (and somewhat odd) song for the London Olympics. ‘Survival’ may have caused confusion amongst music connoisseurs, yet the Queen-esque ‘Madness’ won plenty of prizes. Although album The 2nd Law is not as enthralling as earlier works, like Absolution or Black Holes and Revelations, it didn’t dissuade Muse’s loyal followers filling up Stadiums.  Yet, this new album is lined up to be a gem. Freshly released on the 11th of March, their new single ‘Psycho’ has received positive reviews as Muse return to a more guitar-laden sound.

And thus, ‘The Psycho UK Tour’ was born, an escapade across some smaller venues in the UK. This tour will allow fans to hear new material before Drones is released to the world on the 8th June 2015. With support with young rock monsters Marmozets, these live shows will be a lot more than flashy lights. Muse are bound to bring energy and professionalism, whilst Marmozets are expected to wonderfully warm up the crowds with some angst and fast-paced riffs. Either way, it would appear that this tour is not to be missed. Good luck finding a ticket though.

Tickets across the UK are currently sold out, yet tickets for Download Festival 2015 are still available: click here
