Monday Fresh: Muse To Govern Hometown For One Day
0
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."

    Nope. I want them to continue exploring. See.. if they did what you want, people would complain that they're predictable and boring. No way to win. This happens to Rush.. 311... Linkin Park... pretty much everyone. Change? Complaints. Stay the same? Complaints.

    I didn't know pop artists wrote "symphonies" and songs averaging about 6-7 minutes long! I gotta find me more pop.

    Surprised no-ones noted that their hometown is 'Teignmouth' not 'Teignbridge'...

    Surprised you haven't noticed their hometown is called Teignmouth but it's run by Teignbridge council.

    Well their Olympic song sounds really awesome except for all the vocals... I usually like Matt's vocals but this song has some of the worst(uninspired) lyrics and singing

    Best to stick to their rules on this day, or you might end up a Citizen Erased.

    They've just sort of reactivated again, as they're releasing a new album soon, that's why you see 'em on the news.
