“World ambassadors for paranoia,” is how Matt Bellamy jokingly describes Muse, but as we join them on tour for this month’s cover feature Q discovers the Devonshire trio are also glorious envoys for “toomuchness”. With unprecedented access backstage – and onstage (literally!) – Dorian Lyskey joins the band on their recent Canadian tour and immerses himself in a world 360-degree video screens, hammerhead stage platforms and more as he straps himself in for the most outlandish rock concert ever.
“I think people sometimes want to experience something dark or unusual,” notes Bellamy of his audiences’ deepest desires, and the Muse frontman explains why he is happy to oblige in our new issue, on sale from Thursday (18 February).
This month we also revisit Hip Hop’s inventive beginnings as celebrate its golden age in a 21-page special. Trailblazers Run-DMC, Eric B & Rakim, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, Ice-T and many more all feature in this in-depth look at the revolutionary era.
