Unusual influences for The Resistance

Muse have revealed that their new album boasts disco and glam rock influences.

Bassist Chris Wolstenhome told Australian radio station TripleJ that The Resistance, which will be released on September 14, is "more kind of dancey and disco-y than anything we've done before".

[We were] kind of almost influenced by things like Goldfrapp", he added.

"Kind of like a rock version of what Goldfrapp would be. And influenced a little bit by some glam bands as well from the 70s and 80s."
