Both feet, meet shitty bandwagon we’ll all be laughing shamefully at in a decade. When Muse released the too-orchestral, too-overblown The Resistance in 2009, it was hard to see where the band could go from there. As the trailer for their new album The 2nd Law clearly shows, they’re going in two directions: first, more orchestra; second, dubstep. Watch the trailer below:
Even after the band’s constantly tongue-in-cheek, often misinterpreted humor, this looks too well-elaborated to be a joke. Although, if it does turn out to be that way, we’ll be glad to find out.
The 2nd Law‘s release is tentatively set for September 17th, according to a countdown on Muse’s official site, and to the trailer, which states “September 2012.” There’s also a gallery of new studio pictures, in which Skrillex is nowhere to be found.
This shit has to be a stunt. If not…. damn.
