Expect new Beastie Boys album and tour this fall


From Copelandentertainment.com

Mix Master Mike's tour schedule is evidence that Beastie Boys will not be releasing their new album and touring until this fall. August [Update: now confirmed to be September] seems the likely month that fans can expect some new music and tour action. In the meantime, fans will have to be happy with the two new tracks and the announced festival performances, which are sure to be "greatest hits" sets. Beastie Boys have stated in the past that they don't like to play new songs for festival audiences because they're generally not accepted well.

From all accounts we've heard, the new Beastie Boys album is completed and has been completed for some time. A listening session with some label reps happened at the end of January. The report we heard was that "All three sound great -- especially Adrock." Another source who has heard some of the album told us that it sounds very Check Your Headish. Chomp on that.

Great news! I love Check your Head! I can wait for the tour. It will take me a while to make money to buy a concert ticket.

why the delay?

Bands can make more money playing festivals than doing their own shows.

RE the delay: Who can say? It could have been the label's decision. It could be related to Yauch being occupied with his film biz. It could be because Horovitz is busy with his softball team. It could be because the band want it released in fall. Does it really matter? A few months doesn't seem that long of a wait to me.
