Go behind the scenes as photographer Alexei Hay uses an experimental technique to capture the British rockers.

When they play live, British rockers Muse fill up arenas with their trademark sonic arsenal and epic lighting effects, so when photographer Alexei Hay shot them for the cover of our September issue, it made perfect sense to put on his very own light show.

Watch our exclusive video of Muse’s New York cover shoot for SPIN, and see how the band and Alexei used a “light painting” technique to create the trippy, vibrant pictures seen in the magazine. Plus, get a taste of their romping single, “Uprising,” as you take a look behind the scenes.
