Theory - Muse to Perform at Apple Event Next Week?

Now we don't normally report on speculation and hearsay, but I thought this one warranted a mention. /u/KasabianChess, member of social news website Reddit, posted this earlier today, theorising that Muse may make an appearance at next week's Apple event.

DISCLAIMER: This is just a theory!

Apple is holding an event next week. One of the things that they're expected to debut is Beats radio (or apple radio?) They recently hired Zane Lowe from BBC radio 1 to join the Apple (radio?) team.

Matt just tweeted out a pic of Zane Lowe and the band, stating that he is going to meet "Jimmy" (Iovine from the Apple/Beats team) very soon. Putting two and two together I really think that they're going to perform at the event next week. Apple does this a lot (Foo Fighters, Coldplay, U2 etc..) so it would not be out of the ordinary. I assume that apple would have muse play a new song in order to push the publicity for apple radio.

We reckon they could be on to something...

Drones, Psychos, Artwork and Teasers. Just another week in the world of Muse

Well, well, well... what a week. As the launch of Drones draws ever closer, we take a look at the teasers and tidbits of information sneaking their way onto the interwebs.

We've had Instagram, Twitter and Facebook posts from Muse, Tom Kirk and Matt Mahurin (he's in charge of the LP's artwork), as well as an early interview with Ticketmaster to whet our appetites.

So let's get started.

Matt has hinted that the next single will be titled 'Psycho', in a series of tweets going back and forth between himself and fans.

If that wasn't enough, he's also tweeted a number of controversial articles on the subject of politics and psychopaths, suggesting they will play a theme in track #1 of the album.

Whilst Matt has been pontificating, Tom Kirk has been teasing. Instagram, though, has taken centre stage, with posts by Muse hinting that the album will hit stores mid-June (notice the 0615):

If that wasn't enough, Matt has conducted his first interview in what seems like an age. He discusses going back to their roots, the infamous Citizen Erased sequel, and themes on the new album.

Still want more? OK then. Matt Mahurin, Drones artist extraodinaire, posted this earlier today.

I'm exhausted. Bring on the new single!
