Muse are an English alternative rock band that formed in Teignmouth, Devon in 1994. Since their inception, the band has comprised vocalist, guitarist and pianist Matthew Bellamy, bassist and backing vocalist Christopher Wolstenholme and drummer Dominic Howard. Muse are known for their energetic and extravagant live performances and their fusion of many music genres, including progressive rock, classical music and electronica. Muse have released four studio albums – Showbiz (1999), Origin of Symmetry (2001), Absolution (2003) and Black Holes and Revelations (2006) – the last of which earned the band a Mercury Prize nomination and a third place finish in the NME Albums of the Year list for 2006. Their fifth studio album, The Resistance, is due to be released on 14 September 2009.
Muse have won many other music awards throughout their career, including five MTV Europe Music Awards, five Q Awards, six NME Awards, two BRIT awards and four Kerrang! Awards. They have been involved with Teenage Cancer Trust and played at the Royal Albert Hall where they donated all money made by t-shirts etc, to the charity.
As of 2 February 2009, Muse had already made it into the studio and begun recording at least one song for their upcoming album. On microcuts.net, a news headline stated that the album was slated for a September 2009 release, and a new tour of France, and probably most of Europe, was to follow in the autumn. In an interview with BBC 6 Music, Bellamy commented that the album is to show distinct classical influences, and that it's "all very orchestral". On 22 May 2009, the band announced through their website and Twitter that the title of their new album would be The Resistance and that one of the track titles would be "United States of Eurasia". On 16 June 2009, the official release date of The Resistance was announced on the band's website. The album is scheduled to be released 14 September this year. The first single will be "Uprising".

Definitely seeing them live again, I don't think I'll ever not go see them, especially since I can drive myself to places now.
is it bad everytime I see the word "resistance" I read it in my mind like how Matt holds the note at the end of the song for half an hour?
