After a handful of intimate shows in the UK, Muse headlined the Saturday night of Rock Am Ring and started by giving the recently released single ‘Will Of The People‘ its live debut.

The band also performed ‘The Gallery’ from 2002’s ‘Hullabaloo’ alongside ‘Nishe’. The instrumental song was originally released in 2000 as the b-side to ‘Showbiz’ single ‘Unintended’ and hadn’t been played live since 2011.

Matt Bellamy has said in a new interview that Muse‘s forthcoming new album ‘Will Of The People’ is “a greatest hits album – of new songs”. The record is out August 26 and was partly written in response to Muse’s label Warner wanting to put out a ‘best of’ compilation.

“That means this album might have a metal track on it – and it’s like, the best metal track we’ve ever done. Or there’s a sort of soft ballad, love song and it’s probably the best ballad love song we’ve ever done, and so on,” he said.

Alongside appearances at festivals like Mad Cool and Mallorca Live, Muse have also announced details of a run of intimate shows.
