Beastie Boys album set for release

My friend at Capital Records has confirmed that Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 1 is back on the label's schedule and will be released within the first three months of 2010. An exact street date will be announced soon.

Until a new release date was in the works, I didn't want to read, or refer others to read, any of the press or reviews that came out of the Beastie Boys' European press tour in June 2009, as I felt it would be a mean tease to read about an album that had an uncertain future. Now that the album is definitely back on track for release, I'll return to regularly posting updates and information on the album.

Hooray!! I'm hoping for a Valentine's Day release because I <3 Beastie Boys. Does this mean MCA is all good? I hope so. Happy Thanksgiving to all my Beastie peeps.
