Arena rock juggernaut Muse is ready to get back to basics on the band’s upcoming seventh studio album, tentatively slated for release in early 2015.

During an interview with Radio.com this week (video below), Muse frontman Matt Bellamy was forthcoming when asked about the follow-up to 2012’s The 2nd Law, the GRAMMY-nominated LP that boasted hits like “Madness” and “Panic Station.” The 2nd Law generated some early controversy with the release of the Skrillex-inspired track “Unsustainable,” and the more overt electronic elements found throughout.

“The last two albums, we sort of veered away from our instruments a little bit,” Bellamy said in reference to The 2nd Law and its predecessor, 2009’s The Resistance. “We sort of focused on things like synthesizers, drum machines and various electronics and stuff. I kind of feel like on this next album, we’re going to veer back towards musicianship again and focusing on our own instruments: guitar, bass and drums. It’s probably going to be a bit of a rawer album, and definitely a bit more rock, I’d say.”
