A brand new interview with Muse aired on NME Radio, in which the band address the "dubstep" rumours surrounding their new album.
Bassist Chris Wolstenholme admitted that there is a dubstep influence on the song "Unsustainable", but added that the whole point was to create that sound with real instruments instead of computers and technology.
"It was almost a sort of anti-dubstep in a way,"
he said. "We like that kind of music, more so for the sounds really. The sounds that are used in dubstep are so extreme. It's like this sonic assault on your ears."
He added that "Unsustainable" is "the most 'out there' thing on the album"
and not representative of the record as a whole.
Muse debuted their brand new single "Madness", which is taken from "The 2nd Law", the follow-up to 2009's "The Resistance".
The Devon trio will tour the UK in October, playing five shows. The gigs begin at Glasgow's SECC on October 24, before the band move onto London's O2 Arena for two shows on October 26 and 27. They then play Birmingham LG Arena on October 30 before finishing up at Manchester Arena on November 1.
Thanks for the report to NME.
