England’s MUSE take their rock-dubstep on tour (yes, that’s a new genre)
It’s hard to believe 15 years have gone by since British rockers MUSE came out with their debut self-titled EP -- kinda makes you feel old, doesn’t it?
Despite the band’s surprising (but slight) venture into electronic music and dubstep, their sixth album, The 2nd Law, still topped the charts and even got a Grammy nom in the Best Rock Album category.
Equally influenced by the likes of Queen and David Bowie as it is by Skrillex, the band’s newest album is not jarring at all, contrary to what some might suspect. Rather, it sounds like a natural, well thought out progression from MUSE's previous efforts.
In fact, all it takes is a listen to Grammy-nominated single “Madness” - the second official single off of 2nd Law - to understand exactly what we're talking about when we say this new MUSE sound is totally new but also completely logical and fitting.
Speaking from experience, we can also guarantee that the band’s live shows are just as noteworthy and entertaining as this new rock-dubstep genre they’ve crafted. Every show is indeed worth every buck you'll spend, unlike these $5 coffees we’ve been sipping on all morning.
