As tension builds in the lead up to Muse releasing their sixth studio album, The 2nd Law, the band are up to their usual tricks and yesterday afternoon started posting pictures to their twitter account every 10 minutes. It turns out it's their new album artwork and it's a rather interesting idea. They've used a "Neuro image supplied courtesy of the Human Connectome Project, Laboratory of Neuro Imaging, UCLA." It's basically a map of the brain. See it above.
Along with that an interesting listing over on Celebration! Cinema has been discovered. It supposedly reveals that Muse will be performing at Battersea Power Station on the 16th September, the day before The 2nd Law is released.
NCM Fathom, Warner Music Group and Omniverse Vision are partnering to present Muse Live from London. The performance will launch Muse's 6th Studio album, The 2nd Law, and feature tracks from the new album as well as classics from their 16 year career. Broadcasting from one of London's most iconic landmarks, Battersea Power Station, the event will be a theatrical spectacle with dramatic flair that has made Muse so successful with fans - including a shoot with helicopters amid the full backdrop of the impressive London landscape.
We'll bring you more information as we have it but it could promise to be a very interesting watch. Remember when Foo Fighters did the live show at the end of Back and Forth? I'll happily go to the cinema to watch Muse broadcast a live event!
Muse will tour their new album across Europe in the latter part of 2012. Dates can be found over here. The 2nd Law is released on which hits stores on September 17th/18th via Helium 3/Warner Bros Records.
