RATM: 'No Plans To Record New Album'
Tom Morello has said that Rage Against The Machine have "no plans" to record beyond releasing their forthcoming 20th anniversary rerelease of their debut album, with the amended title "Rage Against The Machine XX". Fans had been hopeful for new music when in early November bassist Tim Commerford told TMZ (via Antiquiet) that the band were "definitely, maybe" working on a new album. However, Morello hinted that there could be similar special editions of their other albums when their 20th anniversaries come up. "One at a time, man!" he told Billboard. "The good news is that we've got time to think about it. I think the next one ('Evil Empire') came out in '96, so there's four years to decide on that." The problem is, their other albums have less potential bonus content, unlike the forthcoming "Rage Against The Machine XX" which features a full CD of demo tracks. "There have been a lot of shows recorded professionally, but there are not unreleased songs", he added. "Rage Against The Machine XX" is set for release on November 27 as regular single disc version, a Special Edition with two CDs and two DVDs, and a deluxe box set with the CDs, DVDs, vinyl and a 40-page book full of photos with liner notes by Chuck D from Public Enemy. Could Morello be hiding the truth so that a new album release will be a surprise? Would any new music from the band live up to your expectations? Let us know what you think in the comments.
