Muse confirm studio time for straight after the Reading and Leeds festivals

Muse have confirmed that they will hole up in the studio to begin work on their new album following their upcoming headlining slots at the Reading and Leeds festivals. 

The 'Uprising' rock superstars will perform at the world-famous bank holiday weekend event at the end of August and revealed last night (August 9) to BBC's Radio 1 that they will spend the subsequent month recording:

"September and October, that's when we're going to get into the studio to start writing the new album."

The band's bassist, Chris Wolstenholme, added that they probably won't debut any new material at the festivals because the presence of social media and online video hosting sites often means that "dodgy recordings" begin to circulate before they're perfected:

"It's difficult to bring new songs into the live set before you record them with the internet and dodgy recordings of live songs getting out there before they've been released on an album. People tend not to play new songs live any more. That's why we want to get into the studio, make another album and then tour it."
