The new album from Muse, the 2nd Law, is streaming a week ahead of its release. The full album stream is accessible via iTunes in the U.S., Canada, and Brazil; through the Guardian in the U.K. Fans in other countries should click here for the full list of stream options. If none of the streaming options work, the album has been ripped/uploaded to You Tube, though it's best to enjoy the album as a whole instead of just tracking through it. The 2nd Law is the band's sixth studio record and drops October 1st worldwide and October 2nd in North America.
Yesterday the BBC's Zane Lowe interviewed Chris Wolstenholme from Muse, who talked about the new record. At one point Lowe asked him about touring and if there were any plans to play some new places, to which Wolstenholme revealed that the band would like to do that at some point in tour cycle, but would begin the tour with dates in main cities in Europe, then head to North America for the first half of 2013, and then most likely play stadiums next summer in Europe.
