Fabulous news. We can listen to it with our May bonnets on.

When is Yauch going to do something about the hamsters he has glued to his face?

1:13 PM Saber said...

^That will be a separate announcement.

Bring it on Beastie Boys.

1:21 PM Emily said...

This news makes me so happy!!! I'm going to glue hamsters to my face!

2:06 PM Triple Trouble said...

Awesome news.. I can't wait to hear it. Also glad to see the announcement was by Yauch.

MAY 3. Party people get ready!

7:18 PM Kevin said...

Excellent news. For a long time I thought the album would never be released.

The time between Beastie Boys album has never been short, but with this album we had the stress of worrying about Yauch too. I appreciate him giving us the news.

How long has it been since they first started working on the album? 2008?

7:27 PM Streetwise said...

Let the countdown begin! 51 days until May 3.

7:48 PM Penny said...

Hamsters for everyone!!! This is the best possible news I could get today! I'm doing my happy dance. I can't wait for May 3! :)

9:26 PM Def Fan said...

Really good news. Thanks for making it happen Beastie Boys.

12:19 AM Stunt D said...

Did I miss something? What's the hamster talk about?

12:32 AM Stunt D said...

Haha,I see the hamsters. Thanks Fittonia.

How are we to appreciate a remix album when we have not heard the original version of the songs? It's either a stupid or genius move by the boys. I guess we'll see on May 3.

10:10 AM Iku Hitoshima said...

It is exciting news. I have missed Beastie Boys very much.

10:13 AM Alex said...

i don't think it means remix in the sense that they will be completely transformed. just a little spruced up i guess. and well, as you point out, we don't know what the originals sounded like. so in my mind there's no real loss, it's shiny, new and perfected :)

10:22 AM Vaseline said...

Alex : It is a positive way of looking at it. I find most remixes to be not good but I will try to keep an open mind about it.

give mca a twirling bass...he looks like he should be in zz top.

12:05 PM spiffy said...

Bring it Beasties! My ears are thirsty!

12:27 PM Herman92 said...

I'm ready for some new Beastie Boys. Stop with the facial hair/hamster jokes or else Santa Yauch won't leave you any presents.

12:33 PM jo said...

Yauch probably has the beard to cover his scar up, I don’t know my theory. Either way I’m so happy he’s feeling GOOD and that album is on the way. Love the artwork!

12:49 PM Triple Trouble said...

My theory is the beard & mustache are supposed to distract you from noticing how thin he is.

12:52 PM Hot Sauce said...

My theory is he's lazy.

12:55 PM Streetwise said...

"My name is MCA, and I still do what I please"

1:50 PM Cam said...

I'm looking forward to hearing some new Beasties. Any word on tour dates?

2:40 PM Brody87 said...

Hooray for a new album! The cover is kinda crazy. I like it.

9:06 AM cool coper said...

it's a bonny prince billy kind a beard. superb song titles. awesome cover. time is right. yippiyeah!

12:15 PM MrSmiley1 said...

Any word on when a single will drop? We are within that window when we should hear one soon (I hope).

Great news, do we know yet if they have a record store day release this year ? I guess it wold be very close to album release date though ...

3:52 PM Crazy @$$ Crate Digga said...

Does anyone know what the deal is with the EMI Japan version labelled as Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 that is supposed to be released on the 19th April and has a bonus track ?

4:16 PM Hot Sauce said...

The Japanese release info is incorrect.

3:42 AM Crazy @$$ Crate Digga said...

Thanks very much Hot Sauce, I've noticed that amazon.co.uk is listing their version of Hot Sauce Committee as a "clean" import. Even though they'll probably end up stocking the regular version too, I just wondered, who thinks the beastie boys might go the extra mile and re-rhyme certain lyrics or is it more likely to be the typical blanking out of certain words ?

2:18 PM Saber said...

The Record Day Store info is here: http://bit.ly/hfKWuq

No Beastie Boys releases.

3:40 PM Crazy @$$ Crate Digga said...

Thanks Saber, I didn't think there was much chance this year.

8:46 AM Alex said...

no re-rhyming, judging by the clean clip of make some noise.

2:37 AM Crazy @$$ Crate Digga said...

30 second previews of all tracks up on Amazon now.
