Sweeping Brit rockers Muse are coming back this September 14 with The Resistance, their first new album since 2006’s Black Holes and Revelations — and now, no doubt, have a whole new audience to contend with, after the mammoth success of the Twilight soundtrack, on which their appropriately gothtastic “Supermassive Black Hole” appeared.
