Monday Fresh: Muse To Govern Hometown For One Day
Muse have been given the opportunity to govern their hometown for one day. The band will take charge of Teignbridge in Devon, England, after an invite from the local district council. Council leader Jeremy Christophers said the response from the band to the idea has been extremely positive. "The band's new album is centred around energy depletion on the planet. I'm really hopeful we can do some work with younger people about this," Christophers told the BBC. "I'm hugely excited by the prospect." The offer was made when Muse carried the Olympic torch through the town in celebration of the London 2012 games. Their song "Survival" had been selected as the official song for the event, and features on their forthcoming album "The 2nd Law", due in September. "We are completely in their hands," adds Christophers. "The offer's open to try and do something this side of the launch of their album, but if it doesn't happen then perhaps we can do something next year."
