Muse is a British alternative rock band formed in Teignmouth, Devon, England. The trio is comprised of Matthew Bellamy (vocals, guitar, piano), Wolstenholme (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Dominic Howard (drums, percussion).

Described as an alternative rock, space rock and progressive rock band, Muse mix sounds from genres such as electronic music, progressive metal and art rock, and forms such as classical music, rock opera and many others. In 2002, Bellamy described Muse as a "trashy three-piece". In 2005, Pitchfork described Muse's music as "firmly ol' skool at heart: proggy hard rock that forgoes any pretensions to restraint ... their songs use full-stacked guitars and thunderous drums to evoke God's footsteps." AllMusic described their sound as a "fusion of progressive rock, glam, electronica, and Radiohead-influenced experimentation." On the band's association with progressive rock, Howard said: "I associate it [progressive rock] with 10-minute guitar solos, but I guess we kind of come into the category. A lot of bands are quite ambitious with their music, mixing lots of different styles and when I see that I think it's great. I've noticed that kind of thing becoming a bit more mainstream."

The band has won numerous awards, including two Grammy Awards, two Brit Awards, five MTV Europe Music Awards and eight NME Awards. In 2012 they received the Ivor Novello Award for International Achievement from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors. They have sold over 20 million albums worldwide.

Muse is touring in support of their blockbuster album "Simulation Theory," which was released on Friday, 9 November 2018. The album is a mix of eleven tracks amongst alternate reality, acoustic, live and remix versions of their songs. Album highlights include songs like "Algorithm" and "Pressure."
