Muse have revealed that new album The 2nd Law is their most personal and intimate to date, claiming that the new release is the first time they have discussed their relationships on record.
The band's new album, their sixth studio release, is due for release on 1 October 2012 and will see the West country trio open up like never before. The new album also sees the band experiment with dubstep for their first time in their career - as heard on new single 'Madness' and previous instrumental release, 'Unsustainable'.
"We're singing about things like relationships for the first time," says Matt Bellamy to the New Zealand Herald. "Actually, I did that for a bit on the first album [1999's 'Showbiz'] but then I started doing interviews and thought, 'Oh my God, I can't answer these questions they're getting too personal'. So that's when we started getting all conceptual and pretending the album was about the end of the world, or whatever.
Continuing, Bellamy spoke of the band's newfound interest in dubstep, changing sounds on each album and the band's sense of adventure when it comes to each record.
"Every album we do we try to find new ground and new sounds to play with and new instruments, new styles of songwriting and new styles of production. Because change is what creates momentum in a band and I think we're lucky, all three of us are very open to exploring new avenues."
