Since their formation in 1994, Muse have released six studio albums, developing a distinct sound comprised of Bellamy’s use of falsetto and a mixture of synth and influences from the electronic music, classical music and progressive rock genres. Some of their most recognizable hits include “Time Is Running Out” and “Hysteria” on their 2003 album Absolution and “Uprising” from their 2009 album The Resistance.
Muse’s current hit, “Madness,” is off their newest album The 2nd Law, which was released earlier this month. The group also released a song called “Survival” to serve as the official song for the London 2012 Olympics.
Well known for their live show experience, Muse concerts involve laser lights, visual effects and creative stage designs. At times, stage components rise and fall, and during their 2010 tour, the group opened standing on three skyscrapers. The group is comprised of Bellamy, who also plays the piano and keytar, bassist Christopher Wolstenholme and drummer and percussionist Dominic Howard.
Los Angeles-based rock band Dead Sara, fronted by singer Emily Armstrong and guitarist Siouxsie Medley, is a four-piece group is best known for their song “Weatherman.”
