U.K. rockers Muse revealed that they will start recording their new album this year in London.  It will also be the first time all the band members have lived in the same place in 12 years.

Speaking to BBC 6Music (via Spinner), frontman Matt Bellamy says the group will start work on the new record by the end of the year.  However, it may take a couple years before we get to hear it.

"I'd like 2012 if possible but 2013 definitely," said Bellamy.

This will be the first time Muse have made an album in London.

"We've actually never made a full album here, it'll be nice to all be based in the same place, we can go out and socialize.  It also means we can make the album over a longer period of time without having to pressurize it into a three-week studio session.  You can spread it out more."

The new disc will be the follow-up to 2009's Resistance, which spawned Muse's first Top 40 hit "Uprising".
