Muse reveal fave new live tracks

United Kingdom United Kingdom | | 16 June 2006

In an exclusive interview HERE, Chris told us: "So far ‘Knights Of Cydonia’ has been going down a storm. I think the first track ‘Take A Bow’ will also be good live, but it’ll also be one of the trickiest to pull off because there’s a lot more going on outside just the three of us. It's one of those songs that really requires every inch of energy that it has on the album."

He revealed there remain four or five tracks from the forthcoming album, 'Black Holes And Revelations', that the band have yet to play out live, but confirmed they would be ready for  Reading and Leeds festivals, which they headline along with Franz Ferdinand and Pearl Jam.

Visibly excited about the prospect of headlining the prestigious August festivals, the Muse man reminisced: "Reading’s the one I went to a few times as a kid and it’s one of those places where I saw so many bands that I absolutely loved playing and I’d sit there thinking, ‘ahh, one day’."

After gushing, "It’s going to be amazing to be up there", he then humbly joked, "or it could be tragic. We might get on and have the worst gig of our lives!"

On a slightly more believeable note, Chris hinted it would be hard to beat headlining Glastonbury in 2004, the show that helped propel the band to another level entirely.

In the full interview he also describes the band's nerves on that day, notes his bafflement at Matt Bellamy's lyrics, and finally puts to rest those rumours about the singer wearing heels to make him taller!
