Matt Bellamy Marks Muse's Anniversary With Old Photo
Matt Bellamy has posted a picture of Muse back in 1994 in celebration of the band's twentieth anniversary, Gigwise reports.

The tweet, which Bellamy posted yesterday, includes a candid photo of a young Bellamy, Wolstenholme and Howard, alongside the caption, "20 years ago." The photo has been retweeted 2,978 times and counting, and has prompted speculation that the band might be gearing up for an anniversary tour - or at least a celebration of sorts.

Muse, who were called Gothic Plague, Fixed Penalty and Rocket Baby Dolls before landing on their current name, formed in 1994. When they won a local battle of the bands, the trio decided to quit their jobs, abandon university and pursue a music career.

Earlier this year, Bellamy revealed plans to start work on their seventh album in May, and the band recently said that they hope the "heavy" album will be out by next summer.

He's also revealed that he's been archiving 15 years of unseen footage of the band - adding that it will soon be uploaded to YouTube.

Muse's sixth studio album, "The 2nd Law," was released in 2012.
