Muse Wins American Music Award for Favorite Artist in the Alternative Rock Music Category

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - November 22, 2010) - British rock trio Muse took home an American Music Award for Favorite Artist in the Alternative Rock Music Category last night in a ceremony at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. The winners were determined by viewers voting online. The AMA follows on the heels of the band's 2010 MTV Video Music Award for "Best Special Effects" for their video for "Uprising."

"Uprising," the first single from Muse's fifth studio album The Resistance, topped Mediabase's Alternative Rock chart for 19 consecutive weeks, breaking the record for number of consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Mediabase Alternative Rock chart for the 2009 calendar year.

Muse, which is vocalist/guitarist Matt Bellamy, bassist Chris Wolstenholme, and drummer Dom Howard, recently completed the second leg of their North American tour in support of The Resistance, which earned Muse their highest-ever debut on the Billboard album chart when it bowed at No. 3. Muse's previous album, 2006's gold Black Holes and Revelations, peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard album chart. The Resistance also notched 20 No. 1 debuts around the world, including Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, and the U.K.
