In this context I am going to assume "rock band" = "plays their instruments (mostly) live."
As opposed to some pop act where all the music is canned and/or electronic. (And often the vocals are playback.)
So yeah, whatever, Muse makes pop tracks... but they're also out there playing their instruments (well, mostly still...) and that's sort of the key that stuff is supposed to actually be, well, live, right?
There's something way more pathetic about someone miming playing a guitar live. Not that that is what Muse is doing. Yet.

I could rattle off dozens of things that the band could do for a vocal rest, all of them a million times better than NKOK.
For a band that's known so much for their visual show, it's kind of embarrassing that they couldn't come up with something other than that.

I really enjoyed the Red Rocks gig, but that doesn't mean I can't also agree that NKOK was an embarrassment in the middle of something that was otherwise pretty awesome (comparatively.)

The FB streamed gig was hilarious, though, because the constant stream of heart and like emotes just completely stopped dead during NKOK.

Never forget the dreaded Handler shitstorm that lasted about 2 hours in 2015.

Innit, I've been championing Minimum, The Gallery or a shortened instrumental of Con-Science to get the 'jam' treatment for a couple of years now.

Is that extra 3rd mid-gig break really there for his vocals though? I mean, he seemed fine without it at all the UK gigs - not to mention the shit he pulled off at Shepherd's Bush with only one break. I know that's a relatively short stint of gigs but their schedule's had plenty of gaps this year, his voice can't be that fragile. I think the band do genuinely just think it's funny tbh.

I also have a hard time believing this is a vocal thing, for exactly the reasons you listed, especially IT'S NOT DONE OUTSIDE THE US.

I would be super happy to see something like The Gallery played over some amazing visuals. That could be stellar.

Surely can't be the case.

He got through four gigs in England/Ireland over the Summer without it in the set while still playing some of their more vocally challenging songs - Showbiz played at Reading/Leeds and of course, 90% of the SBE set - and still sounded fine by the time Knights rolled around.

But could he do that on a regular basis and not just 4 nights? Isolated System has been a thing worldwide as a mid-set break as well as the jam. I could also be laziness but still under the reasoning of a break.

Like I said though, their schedule has had pretty regular breaks this year. I think their longest stint was 8 gigs in June - other than that, they've only been doing 3-6 gigs before having another break.

May - 4 gigs
*2 weeks off*
June - 8 gigs
*4 weeks off*
July - 5 gigs
*1 week off*
August - 3 gigs
*2 weeks off*
UK - 4 gigs
*2 + 1/2 weeks off*
September - 4 gigs
*6 weeks off*
Blizzcon
*1 week off*
Japan - 2 gigs
*3 + 1/2 weeks off*
Almost Acoustic Christmas
*1 week off*
Australia - 2 gigs

Don'y say it too loud though, some people in this forum might get itchy.

Tomorrow they're playing an arena gig, though, and judging by the kind of occasions they've brought it out - small venues and "special" gigs - they might leave it out at this turn.
Which is an effing pity.

It was played on at least one of the Drones arena gigs.

Just one, I think. It was at Brussels, when they also had to restart the song because of Matt's guitar malfunctioning.
