Muse’s current single, “Uprising,” has remained at No. 1 for 18 consecutive weeks on Mediabase’s Alternative Rock chart. This incredible stretch breaks a record for the longest run at No. 1 in the history of the chart, previously held by Foo Fighters. “Uprising” is the first single from The Resistance, the rock trio’s fifth studio album which debuted at No. 1 on the Alternative, Rock and Internet album charts. The album debuted at No. 2 on the Overall Digital Album chart and earned the band its highest-ever debut on the Billboard album chart landing at No. 3.
An international smash, The Resistance also notched 20 additional No. 1 debuts on charts around the world including Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland and the U.K. Album sales in 2009 reached nearly 150,000 copies – making it the best-selling album by a U.K. artist last year.
The Resistance was produced by Muse and mixed by famed audio engineer Mark ‘Spike’ Stent. The band recently supported U2 on several American tour dates and completed a sold-out tour of the U.K. and Europe. For more information on Muse visit www.muse.mu.
