Muse, everyone's favourite Radiohead/Queen hybrid space-aged prog-rock pioneers, has launched a new gimmick to give fans an exclusive preview of a new song from new album The Resistance.
Access a new microsite for United States Of Eurasia for more information. From what I can tell, fans have to retrieve USB memory sticks from 'agents' in cities around the world, finding clues and solving puzzles to unlock parts of an mp3. So far, sticks have been found in Paris, Berlin, Moscow, Dubai and Tokyo leaving only the Hong Kong part to be found.
It is gloriously mad idea and it seems to have fans talking on the forums.
