Muse have delayed the release of their new album "The 2nd Law" until October. The album had originally been scheduled to come out on September 17, but will now be released on October 1 in the UK and on October 2 in the US. No reason has been given for the delay, but one possible explanation could be to avoid clashing with The Killers' new album "Battle Born", which is also due for release on September 17. The band have also confirmed that the album's first single will be "Madness", which will be released on August 20. They have not said whether the track will be debuted online or on radio prior to that date. "The 2nd Law" is the follow-up to 2009's "The Resistance" and has been recorded in London. It also contains recent single "Survival" amid a total of 13 tracks. 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. The tracklisting for "The 2nd Law" is as follows: 01. Supremacy 02. Madness 03. Panic Station 04. Prelude 05. Survival 06. Follow Me 07. Animals 08. Explorers 09. Big Freeze 10. Save Me 11. Liquid State 12. The 2nd Law: Unsustainable 13. The 2nd Law: Isolated System Thanks to NME for the report.

    Well, I can wait for 15 more days, if you ask me. Not that The Killers holds a ****ing candle to Muse, but whatever... Looking forward to the release.

    Survival was released because it was chosen for the Olympics.. their official first single is Madness

    So they're delaying an album, which is already a finished product, so they don't have to compete in sales with The Killers? Probably a choice made by the record company, a bad decision in my opinion. If you're a fan of both bands, you're gonna buy both albums. If they would've released Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers on the same day, I would've still seen both movies. The release date of a product shouldn't matter, if you're putting out a quality product, people will want it

    This is a terrible idea if the album leaks, and lets face it, all the big releases these days do...

    They must be nice guys to delay one of their most anticipated albums to not shut out the Killers.

    I hope the album is more successful than their Olympic single "Survival" that the games organisers have dropped completly using Vangelis "Chariots of Fire" instead.

    Gotta remember there is a recession at the moment and people aren't buying as much music as they used to.
