Muse’s Dominic Howard says the trio have no plans to release another album in the near future
Muse are fresh off the release of their sixth studio album, “The 2nd Law,” but the guys are already fielding questions about their next release. While drummer Dominic Howard says he and singer Matt Bellamy have been chatting about some concepts for their next album, they likely won’t release anything in the near future.
“We’ve been kind of having those conversations, but really we’ve just literally started touring,” Howard told Billboard. “We tend to feel like we need to finish touring one album before we start anything else rather than starting an album on the road. We like to finish a chapter and start afresh, so it’ll be a couple of years, probably.”
Muse are up for several nominations at the upcoming Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Album for The 2nd Law and Best Rock Song for “Madness.”
Even so, he’s not banking on the band winning at the show. “It’s amazing to be nominated again and certainly a surprise,” he said. “But it’s stiff competition this year in our categories. Fingers crossed, but I’ve got no idea, really.”
The Grammy Awards will air Feb. 10 on CBS.
