Muse frontman Matt Bellamy confirmed that the band's new record will have to wait until 2015, likely giving fans a bit of a disappointment for the prolonged wait.
However, the direction band decided to take made a great portion of fans ever so happy. As Radio.com reports, Bellamy and co. will once again focus on "real instruments." After admitting venturing away toward electronica domain with recent efforts, Matt commented:
"We're gonna veer back towards just musicianship again and focus on our own instruments - guitar, bass and drums and try to make that sort of a focus. It's probably gonna be a bit more of a raw album and definitely more rock I'd say."
Discussing the tentative release date, Matt also dropped a major hint of the album being a conceptual one. "The main focus - we're gonna record a bunch of music, probably like a conceptual album of some kind," he said, just to focus on the unpredictable state of music business.
"The industry's moving so fast, you don't really know," Matt noted. "I don't think we'll be ready to put out another album 'til probably early 2015 or something and I think around that time we'll just look at what's going on, make a judgement at the moment."
The latest Muse studio effort, "The 2nd Law," dropped in early October 2012 via Helium 3 Records.
