Durante cerca de 2 semanas, no site oficial dos Muse, foi proposto um desafio aos fãs. Nesse periodo de tempo, poderiam colocar perguntas que quisessem que viessem a ser respondidas pelos membros da banda. As 30 questões mais votadas foram apontadas à banda. Foram postadas 10 perguntas e as respectivas respostas, para ver mais clique aqui.

 

 

 

 

1- Did you ever thought about doing a "fans-will-choose-the-set" gig? Why/why not? And how about doing it...In the next month?

            Matt- Yes, I think this would be a good idea. Maybe not the whole set (otherwise it would all be Origin tracks or B sides!).But due to the extent of the back catalogue I reckon it would be a good idea to have votes on the website so we can get an idea of which old songs would be best appreciated live.

 

 

2- To Chris: Do you ever look at Matt's lyrics and think "What the f*ck?"

            Chris- Not really. Not all of the lyrical content makes total sense to me but then it doesn’t have to. I don’t think it's anyone's place to question people's lyrics. Lyrics are an expression of someone's thoughts and people have the right to think about what they want. If Matt took any influence from me and Dom on lyrics then they probably wouldn’t make sense to him anymore.

 

 

3- When the new album will be ready approximately?

 

            Chris- It would be nice to have the album out in the second half of next year but we have not set ourselves any targets. It is more important for us to make the best album we have made to date and if that means it comes out in 2010 then we don’t mind. Hopefully it will be sooner though.

 

4- Tell us a song that you really love, but you think is underrated by the fans.

 

             Chris- I really liked Escape from the first album. It's not a track that we ever really played much live and not a track that I've ever heard anyone say it was their favourite. Shame.

 

 5- Do you ever feel embarrased by the actions of your fans?

 

            Dom- I can’t ever feel embarrassed by our fans. I suppose you can do some crazy things like shaving muse into your head, getting tattoos and having mass sing a longs in random places, but its probably all in appreciation for the music which is amazing. Cheers.

 

 

6- Since receiving your honorary doctorates, have you been ever tempted to use the line "trust me I'm a doctor"?

 

            Dom- I use that line every day… I just hope I'm not in the situation where someone takes me seriously and asks me to do something. At that point I will just have to offer a healing drum beat.

 

7- Merged questions. Would you ever consider playing some of your older songs or b-sides live, such as eternally missed, pink ego box, coma etc? During the later stages of 2008, you began to see Muse playing older songs such as Dead Star and Space Dementia, is this going to happen more often on the new tour?

 

            Chris- We have played some b-sides in the past, but it is always difficult to fit them into the setlist. In order to play them it would mean having to take something out. Plus the more albums you have, the more songs you have to choose from which leaves very little space for rarities. I think we will always throw the odd surprise in now and again though.

 

8- Which song was the longest or the hardest to compose?

            Matt- There is a new song in 3 parts, more of a symphony than a song which I have been working on sporadically for many years. As a large percentage of the composition is orchestral I have never wanted to collaborate with a string arranger as they may make it 'theirs'. So I have been arranging the orchestral elements myself which is taking a long time due to my inexperience with large scale scoring. It should hopefully make the next album as the final 3 tracks.

 

9-

Was the Time is Running Out 'dance' back to the microphone that Matt did (in perfect time!) at Glastonbury prepared or spur of the moment?!

            Matt- It was spur of the moment due to a shiny stage surface and some shoes I had on which had no grip. When I first ran on stage I realised I was sliding all over the place and was worried I would slip over, so ended up using it to do some cheap Michael Jackson moves. (watch the video here)


10- You recorded around 20 songs for Black Holes and Revelations but we only heard about 15 of them. What happened to the others and will you ever release them?

            Chris- Of the 20 or so songs that were recorded a few never actually got finished. I think most of the stuff that was finished has probably been released already. The others may get finished one day but at the moment we are too absorbed in new songs. Going back to that stuff would seem like a step in the wrong direction.
