What songs would you recommend I listen to?
Sunburn, Showbiz, Unintended. New Born, Bliss, Plug In Baby, Citizen Erased, Feeling Good. Time Is Running Out, Stockholm Syndrome, Hysteria, Butterflies And Hurricanes. Starlight, Supermassive Black Hole, Map Of The Problematique, Knights Of Cydonia.
When are they going to release new material?
God knows, but they are going to release a live DVD of their Wembley 2007 shows around Christmas, hopefully.
Is there somewhere I can find out more about them?
Muse official website. If you go to the media tab, you can listen to all of their albums (in full).
MuseWiki, their own wiki.
What thread rules are there?
Generic shit. No spamming. No flaming unless... well, fuck that. Flame if you want to. Don't be an ass about it though.
How do I join?
List your favourite Muse songs. Your 3, 10, 20 favourite songs, whatever. Favourite album, favourite fact, favourite live show, whatever. Just show that you have an interest in the band and you're more than welcome.
Other than that, nothing else to say, so just come in and make yourself at home. Feel free to steal my Muse sig (I have one for each album, just ask if you want a different one)
