Follow me

Muse, the English rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, was formed in 1994. The band consists of school friends Matthew Bellamy (lead vocals, lead guitar, piano, keyboards, keytar), Christopher Wolstenholme (bass, vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar, harmonica) and Dominic Howard (drums, percussion, synthesisers, sampling).

Since the release of their 2006 album Black Holes and Revelations, keyboardist and percussionist Morgan Nicholls has performed live with the band. Muse are known for their energetic and extravagant live performances and their fusion of many music genres, including space rock, progressive rock, alternative rock, heavy metal, classical music and electronica.
Muse have released six studio albums so far: Showbiz (1999), Origin of Symmetry (2001), Absolution (2003), Black Holes and Revelations (2006), The Resistance (2009) and The 2nd Law (2012). They have also issued three live albums, Hullabaloo Soundtrack (2002), which is also a compilation of B-sides, Absolution Tour (2005), and HAARP (2008), which documents the band's performances at Wembley Stadium in 2007.

Muse have also integrated the Twilight saga soundtrack with hits such as Supermassive Black Hole for the film Twilight and the fantastic Neutron Star Collision (Love is forever) for Eclipse. World War Z has been Muse's latest film soundtrack! Back to London 2012 Olympic Games, Muse have not only carried the  Olympic torch through their hometown Teignmouth, Devon, but have also created the mighty Survival, the Olympics official song.

Muse were in Portugal last June 10th, at Dragon Stadium, O'Porto, to play an unforgetable show in the band's current world tour: The Second Law Tour. I was one of the mesmerised Portuguese fans to attend the concert! Since then, their music has been spinning around my mind: Dominic's powerful drums in Survival; Christopher's hypnotic harmonica in Knights of Cydonia; Matt's unbelievable voice in Supremacy and Madness, among all the other exquisite moments! Below follows one of the  photos I took during the concert. Even though singing Uprising altogether with a surrendered stadium has become an indelible memory, FOLLOW ME was the moment I expected the most, and the song I dedicate to you all!
