Uprising is the first single off the new Muse album called The Resistance. This single was released on the 7th of September 2009. The Resistance album is the 5th studio album released by the British alternative rock band and was released on the 14th of September 2009. This song is definately one of my favorite tunes of the year. The album promises to be one of the best of 2009 as well. Muse recorded the album in Northern Italy. I still want to kick myself in the nuts for not going to their performance in South Africa in 2006, but I’m sure that there’s a chance that they might visit my country one day again.
Muse was formed in 1999 in Teignmouth, Devon, England and is comprised of Matthew Bellamy, Christopher Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard. To date Muse have sold more than 8 million records worldwide. That amount is bound to increase with sales of the new album. Over the years they’ve managed to win 2 BRIT Awards, 4 Kerrang! Awards, 1 Meteor Music Award, 1 MTV Asia Award, 5 MTV Europe Music Awards, 1 MTV U Woodie Award, 6 NME Awards and 5 Q Awards (truly impressive if you ask me). I’m sure that we’re bound to see a lot more music from this band in the future. They truly have become one of the most recognized British exports. Judging by pictures and videos I’ve seen I’d say that they’re probably one of the best live acts around.
