Beastie Boys "The Mix Up" Due Out In June...

Beastie Boys name new album
Mike D gets ready for new record and Live Earth gig
Beastie Boys have revealed exclusively to NME.COM that their new album will be called 'The Mix Up' and will be released in June.

Bandmember Mike D said the follow-up to 2004's 'To The 5 Boroughs' will be "radically different" to its' predecessor. The rockier record will instead hark to the style of the band's classic albums 'Check Your Head' and 'Paul's Boutique'.

Mike D said: "We play instruments on the whole album, as opposed to sampling. There's more rock on there. If you know us you can trace the influences and they're no completely surprising. Someone who listens to us casually might think 'What the hell are these guys doing?'

"It might make you flip your wig right off, or your hairpiece, if you're a casual listener."

The star also talked about the band's forthcoming appearance at the London leg of the Live Earth shows, which aim to promote action to confront global climate change.

Beastie Boys will perform at Wembley Stadium alongside the likes of Madonna, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Snow Patrol.

Speaking about the cause, Mike D said: "It's come to the point where drastic measures have to be taken now. To really create a mass consciousness of what needs to be done, mass action, it's gonna take mass awareness. And these huge concerts around the globe are probably one of the best means of doing so."

Asked if he would be playing any new material at the event, the star replied: "By that point we'll already be playing new songs. But I dunno - you don't wanna do 'Jazz Odyssey' in front of a crowd of 60,000."

I'm psyched for this. They keep producing good material so I expect this to be done well, especially for the fact that they said that they are going back to their roots sound which I like the most.
"We can get lost in the fall glimmer sparkle and fade"
"dumb rock hard and good to go"

Same here...the Beasties are my favorite musical act, and they always will be. But still....I'm trying to make myself excited over this one...

Oh yeah...it's been bumped up to June 26th...the video for the new single supposedly has some "spy" action in it...

it's nice to know these guys are still kickin' it after all these years. odd that they're as old as me and are still making music any teenager can relate to, but hey...i'll bet every 40-something music icon wishes he/she could still generate the excitement and buzz that the Boys do.
Stupid happy with everything....

Indeed it is. And also....the video for what may be their first single "The Rat Cage" can be seen on their official site and YouTube.
