11 October 2012, 11:17

The 'Madness' stars offer high words of praise for Chris Martin and co as the group's latest album hits the American charts.

Muse have revealed that they don't consider themselves to have truly cracked the American market and believe Coldplay are the only English band to have achieved real success in the US over the past fifteen years.

The 'Supermassive Black Hole' band admitted that having great success in America is their big goal after new album 'The 2nd Law' hits the Billboard 200 at number two this week – giving them their highest ever position in the US chart.

"Coldplay are the only English group to have had real success there in the last 15 years," revealed frontman Matt Bellamy.

Speaking about his own band's ambitions, he added: "You don't think about it when you start, you're just content to be recognised on home soil.

"But then you want something more." 

One Direction are another UK outfit who've  achieved huge success in the US this year.

Their album 'Up All Night' made them the only British band in history to debut straight at the number one spot and their new single 'Live While We're Young' has become the fastest selling single British single of all time.
