Muse's Chris Wolstenholme finds it "weird" singing at their live shows, as he is taking lead vocals for the first time in the bands career on their new tour

Muse's Chris Wolstenholme finds it "weird" singing at their live shows.

The bass player takes lead vocals on two songs - 'Liquid State' and 'Save Me' - from the band's new album 'The 2nd Law' and found his first time singing lead vocals live with a crowd at a preview show in Cologne, Germany, a strange experience.

He said: "It was weird because it's something I've never experienced before, and when you're singing you feel really detached from the other guys. I wasn't ready for that."

The band only performed 'Save Me' at the show, but Chris - who is joined in the band by Matt Bellamy and Dominic Howard - promised when they do their full shows he will be singing both.

He added: "We'll do 'Liquid State' in the areans. I didn't want to sing that [at this warm up show] though, I wanted to ease in gently.

"Your sixth album, when you're 33, is a weird time to decide you suddenly want to be a singer."

'The 2nd Law' is released on October 1.


Full on bombastic assault of operatic guitar gymnastics from the mighty Muse.
