Muse are busy working on new material, however they’ve found the time to share two teaser snippets from the making of their upcoming album.
It appears the finishing line is in sight for Muse, as they complete work on the last few songs for their seventh studio record that’s apparently going to be named Drones.
Muse have been documenting the whole recording process, sharing photos and videos from the studio sessions on Instagram.
The group completed their first sessions for the forthcoming LP in October. The band shared the news on their Instagram page, posting a picture of the studio with the caption: “End of first session. It’s been emotional.”
At a Twitter Q&A, singer Matt Bellamy was asked, “are you sticking to your ‘going back to guitar/drums/bass’ or was that just Matt being a tease?” Bellamy responded: “yes. It’s gonna get heavy.”
Bellamy said, “I have this strong feeling that the next album should be something that really does strip away the additional things that we’ve experimented with on the last two albums.”
The latest footage to be posted on the band’s Instagram page, is a short video of Bellamy playing guitar and a clip of a ‘voice over’ that sounds like it is taken from an Army drill instructor.

Muse also announced that they are collaborating with legendary AC/DC producer Robert ‘Mutt’ Lange on their new upcoming album.
The upcoming record will be Muse’s seventh studio album, following 2012′s The 2nd Law. Last month, Muse celebrated the 15th anniversary of their debut Showbiz, which was released in September 1999.
Drummer Dom Howard also cited Nirvana as a huge influence on the band’s sound. Howard said: “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.
