Matt Bellamy of Muse reacts to first-ever image of black hole
Muse frontman Matt Bellamy, whose band had a successful hit single in 2006 with a song called “Supermassive Black Hole,” commented on Wednesday (April 10th) on the historic news that a team of scientists had unveiled the first-ever image of — you guessed it — a supermassive black hole located in the galaxy Messier 57.

Bellamy instantly made the connection between the major scientific breakthrough and the song, which is taken from Muse’s fourth album, Black Holes And Revelations. Posting the photo of the cosmic phenomenon, he wrote, “Supermassive black hole, finally spotted.”
Muse fans were also quick to respond to Bellamy, with one writing, “Matt congrats your song is in space,” while another noted that it was an “ideal day” to listen to both the song and the LP on which it’s found.
Muse released its eighth studio album, Simulation Theory, last November. The LP features the Top Five single “Pressure.” The British trio will wrap up a North American arena tour this Friday (April 12th) with a show in Chicago.
Matt Bellamy has recorded his first solo tune, called “Pray,” for the LP For The Throne, a companion soundtrack album to the eighth and final season of Game Of Thrones. The soundtrack arrives on April 26th, while the season premiere is this Sunday (April 14th). Muse recently played the song live on its latest tour:
