Muse to commence work on 'Black Holes...' follow-up next month!

Muse have had an extraordinarily busy few years in support of hit album Black Holes and Revelations, but drummer Dom Howard has revealed to BBC 6 Music that the band will start work on the follow-up next month.

Howard said: "We just did the V Festival and the one in Stafford was our last gig so we're kind of done now with the 'Black Holes & Revelations' album tour, which has been almost two and a half years, which is a long time. We're working on new stuff and we're gonna have a couple of weeks off and then in about two weeks time we're back out to Italy to start writing again. We've already done a few tracks and it sounds great so we're just working to the future."
