Muse has pushed back the release of its sixth studio album, The 2nd Law, with the set now coming out on October 2nd instead of September 18th. No official reason has been given for the delay, but a source told us that the British trio's record label wants to avoid a logjam of releases during the last two weeks of September that may include new CDs from Green Day, No Doubt, the Killers and Mumford & Sons.
The band has also announced "Madness" as the first official single from the 13-track effort, and not "Unsustainable" as previously reported.
"Madness" is still slated to arrive at radio stations around August 20th.
The album will also include "Survival," which was picked last month as the official theme for the 2012 Olympics, now underway in London.
Muse will tour the U.K. in October and will probably hit the U.S. in early 2013.
