Muse have revealed plans to start writing their sixth studio album next month.

The band's bassist Chris Wolstenholme told BBC Radio 1 that they will begin the follow-up to 2009's The Resistance after their upcoming festival dates.

Wolstenholme said: "September and October, that's when we're going to get into the studio to start writing the new album.

"I think by the time you've finished touring an album, which is usually a two-year cycle, it's something you start thinking about a lot."

He added: "It's difficult to bring new songs into the live set before you record them with the internet and dodgy recordings of live songs getting out there before they've been released on an album.

"People tend not to play new songs live anymore. That's why we want to get into the studio, make another album and then tour it."

The band's drummer Dominic Howard previously said that it is up to him and Wolstenholme to make frontman Matt Bellamy's new material heavy if necessary.

Muse will play their second album Origin of Symmetry in full at their upcoming headline Reading and Leeds Festival performances.
