Pressure (single)

Matt says the song "Pressure" will answer "in multiple ways" about the pressure he feels to make new rock songs. Are y'all expecting something heavier from this song or something like the three songs we've gotten so far?

Well, he said it's going to have a "classic Muse" sound, so I'm bound to believe it won't be really similar to what they've released so far for LP8, apart maybe TC, but you never know with them...

That said, another personal song, huh? I like that Matt seems more inclined to write songs about what he actually feels, instead of political paranoia and alien conspiracies.

It would be pleasantly ironic if this song turns out to be the "old Muse" style song fans have been waiting for.

I have so many conflicting responses to this.

1) That tells me the end result musically indicates Matt's feelings towards his fanbase. "Classic Muse sound" loosely means "I'm doing it for you guys." If it ends up being pop, then the message is more like "fuck you I'll do what I want."

2) Dream Theater have already written the "Muse complaining about their fanbase" song:



3) Some of the "pressure" is probably Chris and Dom taking his simple songs and throwing everything at them. We now have a song about in-band fighting.

4) It's really adorable how Matt has started wearing his heart on his sleeve.

Looking forward to this a lot. The only thing that could make me happier is if they brought back the use of B-sides.

It seems it's going to be an everchanging riff-fest.
No, I'm not joking, it's aprox. along the lines of what Matt said in one of the lastest interviews. Someone could help us retrieve it?

Are we looking along the lines of a new Prog Rock song then? Or not that far?

I choked while typing this post by the way - Felt like someone had to know.

To be fair, hasn't Matt always written quite emotional songs but covered them with conceptual faff? Drones for example, seems to me like trying to come to terms with a rather controlling relationship, which is the only reason I connected to songs like Dead Inside and The Handler Map of the Problematique as well, with singing about Gaia but referring to what might become (and then became) an economic crisis and how to handle the aftermath. But maybe I'm just reading way too much into it

Iirc Matt specifically said in an interview a few months ago that there were no 5/6+ minute songs and no prog.

Yeah or at least that their focus was on 3-4 minutes tracks. Might be one or two exceptions.

True but, yeah, basically it defo wouldn’t be my first thought. If anything, it wouldn’t surprise me if Matt thinks ‘classic Muse’ is something like Mercy tbh.

In this interview Matt said this:

"That’s a more straight Muse rock track, like a different riff every ten seconds, basically. "

Sort of like the "Riffgasm" outro to New Born live then I guess.

Maybe not totally. If I recall correctly, he said they would just try to veer off a bit from that kind of songs, but without dismissing them entirely.
