Muse have confirmed plans to commence work on a new record later this year. Speaking from the Coachella Music Festival, drummer Dom Howard explained that the band has opened up their calendar following their appearance at the fest:
"We're going to start this year . . . (Coachella) is our last two gigs, then we're completely done for touring this album," he began.
"We're going to go back in May and start working on some new stuff, so I think we'll start making it this year . . . If we can get something out this year, that would be great, but definitely next year."
He also explained that they have been largely influenced by Nirvana while writing tracks for the new release:
"They were massively influential to us when we were growing up. They're one of the reasons we picked up some instruments and decided to start a band in the first place, and I think that for many other millions of people, they were influential for starting bands. We all love them, it was a band that all three of us loved and it was that kind of music and some other bands that brought us together and we became friends because of that."
