The British arena rockers - who last album was 2015’s Drones -- today (Feb. 6) announced a string of North American headlining shows beginning May 20 in West Palm Beach, Fla. Along with Thirty Seconds to Mars and PVRIS, they’ll traverse amphitheaters and festivals over the subsequent months. Muse is still working its way around the globe in support of their seventh studio album Drones (Helium-3/Warner Bros. Records), which gave the outfit their first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 when it bowed at the top in June 2015. Drones won best rock album at the 58th Grammy Awards in February 2016.
Thirty Seconds to Mars’ last release was 2013’s Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams. The Jared Leto-led band played just several shows in 2016, but hinted that new music would arrive in 2017 through a recent deal with Interscope Records. Back in August, Thirty Seconds to Mars teased a 2017 release for their fifth studio album. The video showed the band secluded in a desert location working on fresh music. After a highly publicized legal battle with EMI and Virgin, Thirty Seconds revealed they had signed with Interscope to release the upcoming full-length.
PVRIS announced their dates with Muse along with an update on their forthcoming sophomore album. According to a press release, the Massachusetts-based rockers are “putting the finishing touches” on the follow-up to 2014's White Noise, working again with producer Blake Harnage. While Muse and 30STM are no strangers to big rock tours, PVRIS -- who got a taste of arenas alongside Fall Out Boy last year -- are in great position to break out behind the upcoming dates and new music.
