The to date impressive MUSE will release their sixth studio album “The 2nd Law” on Helium 3 / Warner Records on September 17 2012. From what With Guitars understands, ‘The 2nd Law’ will in no way disappoint in fact quite the reverse.
The album release will be followed by a huge tour of Europe starting in France on October 16 and including five UK shows. The UK dates start in Glasgow on October 24 and include two nights at London’s O2 Arena, one night in Birmingham and one in Manchester.
As of today the band has launched an exclusive ticket pre-sale for muse.mu members. This pre-sale is designed to provide fans with the fairest and first access to tickets. It takes the form of an application process, closing at 6pm on Sunday 10th June, after which tickets will be allocated at random.
General sale is from 10am on Thursday 14 June.
The group has made a stunning short film to preview the album; this can be seen below and of course on www.muse.mu
Further details of the new album will be released shortly. The group’s last studio album “The Resistance” was released in 2009 and topped the chart in 19 countries including the UK, their third No 1 album in this country.
