|Chris Wolstenholme Matt Bellamy & Dominic Howard of Muse|
Since forming in 1994 Muse have released five studio albums selling upwards of 15 million albums worldwide. The group's last album The Resistance reached Number 1 in 19 countries around the world, and they have won numerous awards around the world including a Best Rock Album Grammy and an American Music Award for The Resistance.
Get ready for more because Muse will release their new studio album The 2nd Law on October 2nd and will follow that with a world tour in support of it. On October 6th the band will appear on Saturday Night Live for a live performance.
But that's not all! Today Muse launched the Social Connectome which is a 3-D Google Chrome visualization of the Muse fanbase, created in homage to the Human Connectome project which inspired the artwork for the band's forthcoming new album The 2nd Law, due out on October 2nd via Warner Bros. Records.
So how will it work? The Social Connectome allows people to add themselves to a 3-D visual network of Muse fans, whilst building their own branch of friends and will be able to unlock an exclusive track from The 2nd Law.
As more and more fans join the network, incremental 30-second clips of the new track "The 2nd Law: Isolated System" will be revealed. Each branch is made up of unique recommendations, most of which will be made via Facebook and Twitter. The Connectome can be moved in 3-D space, zoomed in and will pulse to the music when the track is unlocked. This is next level web technology.
Whatever next ? Museville on Musebook?? Well their SocialConnectome certainly sounds different and if you want to check it out you can do so by visiting here: http://connectome.muse.mu/
