Speaking to NME, frontman Matt Bellamy explained that the band would "drawing a line under one phase of our career." He said, "It's probably the last time some of these songs will ever be played live again."
Bellamy continued, "It was on the second album ['Origin...'] that things really started happening for the band, and when we focused on the live side of things much more. So it'll be like coming full circle: we've gone off on one a little bit, and now it feels like the right time to pull it back and remind ourselves of what we were doing 10 years ago."
As previously reported by Spinner, Muse will be headlining the Reading and Leeds festivals in August alongside My Chemical Romance and the Strokes.
