Muse, formed in 1994, just up the road in Teignmouth, Devon. Their debut album ‘Showbiz’ was released in 1999, and set them apart from other bands with their melancholy tone and front man Matthew Bellamy’s falsetto.
Their second album, ‘Origin of Symmetry’ came out in 2001 and the songs gained them a reputation for energetic live shows and featured romantic classical influences and a broader range of instruments. Their next album, ‘Absolution’, took this even further, and featured strings on some songs, and was the first of six UK number one albums in a row.
It’s with songs such as ‘Supermassive Black Hole’ on the 2006 ‘Black Holes and Revelations’ album that Must gained more international recognition. By 2018, Muse had moved towards science fiction influenced tracks, with ‘Simulation Theory’, which featured synthesisers.
Muse has won two Grammy Awards, two Brit Awards, eight NME Awards, and five MTV Europe Music Awards. By 2016, they’d sold over 30 million albums across the globe.
