According to Blabbermouth.net, a source at Epic Records has exclusively told The Zone that the second album from Audioslave will arrive in June.

Singer Chris Cornell, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk have been working on the follow-up to their 2002 debut since last year, and Morello said he couldn't be more excited about the results. "It sounds awesome," he said. "It's a ridiculously rocking record, and I think it far surpasses the first one, which I loved. I thought the first record was great, but we've really gelled as a band and, you know, having a year of touring under our belts, we've become and kind of grown into ourselves as a band. It sounds awesome."

More information about the record, including its title and a specific release date, is not yet available.

Audioslave's self-titled debut disc has sold over two million copies. The band has an unusual record label arrangement: because vocalist Chris Cornell, formerly of Soundgarden, was signed to Interscope Records, that company issued Audioslave's debut. But since the other members of the group were signed to Epic when they were in Rage Against The Machine, that label gets to release the second Audioslave disc. Future releases from Audioslave will continue to flip between the two labels.

    Sounds promising. Hopefully it's not just another conspiracy.

    Zach de la Rocha's new materical just uses different DJ's (none as creative as Morello and the gang). Still sounds better than other rap, though.

    Audioslave rocks, but Rage was sweet too. I hope the new album is as good as it says.

    audioslave is no way better than VR, although they're ok also, their "like a stone" song makes me feel depressed whenever i hear it on the radio, i dunno why...

    Audioslave is decent... but the next article I'd like to see concerning them would be titled: "Audioslave breakup, Zack De La Rocha steps in." Then I'd bust out the party favors.

    when i heard that rage split up i amost cried. still i think audioslave are underated theyre a damn good band and i cant wait for this new album. i hope tom does some more conventional solos on this album like on the first rage album (take the power back, know your enemy, township rebellion etc.)the stuff he does with effects is mind blowing but i really like the shred stuff

    narmi: Man, I miss Rage, Audioslave - nothing special, better than VR, but man i miss Rage [POSTED: 10 January 2005 - 10:39]| Yeah, Audioslave is ALOT better than VR, but Rage was better.

    yes, but i really prefer rage, although i think that audioslave are very good. join the others jack de la rocha
    i guess you dont love em enough to realise its ZACK De La Rocha. o well.
    u kno how in the booklet it says: "all sounds by guitar, drums, bass and vocals" but there is a violin in one of the songs.
    U'd be suprised of wat Tom can do. i hear some of his stuff with effects and its like "where would i start?" as for i love rage more than audioslave. alot more. but Tom been saying how good this slbum is and i can wait. its been a while though

    i agree.. RATM's lyrics wer like 100X better.. and Zach's new song on the Ferenheit 911 soundtrack isnt the same... now this guy is ruinin the band... soundgarden was good, but RATM was much, much better
    sir_shreddalot
    would everyone stop sayin they want zack back in the band, i mean his lyrics were great but it was him who split rage up. tom chris and brad wanted to keep their activism and their music separate towards the end and zack didnt. thats why they split up
    sir_shreddalot
    and anyway chris has an amazing voice and if tom says this new album far surpasses the old one it must be damn good as the first one rocked

    yes the first album was undoubtedly perfect.. i dont see any reason to think that their sophomore album will be very bad and also i have heard reports that they have about 30 songs that they were trying to cram into this cd but think there is going to be about the same as in the first cd, but half the time was deciding which ones they liked the best

    hopefully it is pretty good. i liked the first one, but it got kind of old after a while.
