Beastie Boys "The Mix-Up" due July 10 June 26

We have been waiting and waiting to find out something about the new Beastie Boys album. Well, wait no more because we have the entire scoop!

Today the Beastie Boys new album, which is titled The Mix-Up, was provided to Capitol Records associates for promotional review, along with some additional information about the release. The album will be released in North America on July 10, not June 26 as we reported earlier. [Edit: The label has changed the release date back to June 26.] The album is, in fact, completely instrumental. By "completely instrumental," we mean NO VOCALS.

Get ready to hate us because we have been invited to a private listening party of the new album in Los Angeles tonight. We will provide additional information about the release after the party. We wanted to share the love so we invited select members of the Beastie Boys Message Board in Los Angeles to attend this party with us. So look to hear what those people have to say about the album on the message board.

For real, no vocals? You're the only site in the world reporting this tidbit right now. You got a connection on the inside?

the beasties know when the hold em, know when to fold em, know when to walk away. if they're not rapping its because they know that it's not time to rhyme. instead they'll give us something else. let's hear it before we decide what is "waste" of talent

Yo I am down for anything by the boys. But they are definitely known for being a lyrical group that does instrumental stuff on occasion. Hence the name of this site being called Mic to Mic not Instrument to Instrument. Funny.

I could change the name of the site to "Instrument to Instrument."

Well I'm looking forward to it. I think their instrumentals represent some of their greatest talent. They've always been some of my favorite tracks. But I hope a vocal album will soon follow.
