Interesting Muse Facts and Pictures

I’ve become obsessed with the British trio lately and though my desire to listen to nothing but Muse has died down, I still think these facts are worthy of sharing. Plus, I have the privilege of seeing them in March! So here are some facts about the band along with some pictures in case you want to know more about them. And if you get to see them this year let me know when and how the show was in the comments!

Regarding “Bliss:”

“This is probably the most positive track, the most truly embracing song. It’s almost in awe of the situation I’ve been given, because it’s a state of mind were you give out everything you have without any need for return. It’s also a song aimed towards some-one’s youth, someone who hasn’t been exposed to stuff yet”

In 1998, the record label Maverick, Madonna’s record label, signed Muse. But the label came to dislike Bellamy’s falsetto singing style. In 2001, Maverick asked the group members to rerecord “Plug in Baby” with Matt singing lower, but they refused to give in. The band and the label parted ways.

  1. heeee muse facts! i saw them twice last year, once at the Roundhouse in London and at the LG Arena in Birmingham. The first was incredible as I had an amazing view and had been waiting all day to get in, and the second I was barrier on Matt’s side which was an incredible experience. Seeing them in Coventry in May, eee!

    1. Lucky you getting to see them three times!

      This will be my first time of seeing them live and I can’t wait! I think they’re one of the most amazing live bands and I know it’s something I’ll never forget.
