Muse has cemented their position as one of the world's premier rock bands. The British group's latest album, "The 2nd Law," was released in September 2012. The ambitious group continues to push the boundaries, using thermodynamics to illustrate the unsustainability of rampant technological growth while adding dubstep, funk and orch-rock into their complex brand of bombastic, proggy arena-rock.

Their previous album, "The Resistance" (2009), was their third consecutive number one album in the UK and it went on to top the charts in a further 21 countries and win Best Rock Album at the 2011 Grammys. The 2009-10 tour saw the band playing to sold-out arenas and stadiums around the world, selling 1.5 million tickets along the way.

Muse is comprised of Matt Bellamy, Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenholme. Hailing from the small Devon town of Teignmouth, the former schoolmates released their first album, "Showbiz," in 1999, followed in 2001 by "Origin of Symmetry." Their 2003 follow-up, "Absolution," features fourteen Muse originals including "Stockholm Syndrome," "Butterflies and Hurricanes" and the first stateside single, "Time Is Running Out." The album, produced by Rich Costey (Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine, The Mars Volta) was recorded in London, Devon and Los Angeles in 2003. Their fourth album, "Black Holes and Revelations," was released in 2006, charted #1 in the UK and reached #9 on the Billboard 200 album chart.

Relentless, innovative and creatively uncompromising, Muse has garnered extraordinary critical praise and built a fanatically loyal international fan following.
