Modern rock giants Muse have their hearts set on an October 2012 release date for their sixth studio album, but their camp says there are no guarantees — especially on the length of time it takes for them to record.

Muse are currently at work on their next album of arena-ready choruses and buzz-worthy guitar riffs, the album will be the follow-up to the 2009 release ‘The Resistance.’ In a recent interview with, Muse manager Anthony Addis gave some details on the upcoming release and it appears that the band is holding off on their plans to record in space until their next album:

“They’ve now gone into the recording studio. The plan is to do it all in London…Hopefully, [the album] might come out October next year. They’ve written a lot of material already but you don’t know how it’s going to gel between them all. They write constantly. They write on the road, so before or after a gig they’ll write nearly every night. It’s a serious process, but you don’t know how it’s going to turn out [until] you start practicing it together, because everybody’s done it individually.”

Muse had a light touring schedule last summer, only performing at a handful of festivals like L.A. Rising, Leeds, and Reading. Frontman Matthew Bellamy most likely kept their obligations to a minimum to enjoy the company of his newborn son Bingham Hawn Bellamy — who he and fiancee Kate Hudson welcomed in July. The band most recently made headlines when Chris Wolstenholme’s bass line from their song ‘Hysteria’ was named the best of all time by Music Radar.
