Beastie Boys still releasing new album this Spring…


Beastie Boys member Mike D says the veteran rap trio is still on track for a 2011 comeback that includes the release of new album “Hot Sauce Committee Part 2″ this spring, after Adam Yauch’s cancer battle rendered the group inactive for much of 2010.

In a new interview with BBC Radio 1, Mike D confirms that the Beasties’ release schedule for its two “Hot Sauce Committee” albums has not changed from what was announced back in October 2010. “It’s still delayed – the first one,” he says. “The second one is coming out as originally scheduled.”

The rapper adds that while the group is “really happy” about Yauch’s improved health, touring plans for 2011 are still unclear. “We’re still going to have to see how he’s [Yauch] doing,” says Mike D.

Although the BBC Radio 1 interview led to widespread reports that Mike D said Yauch was cancer-free, a spokesperson for the group clarifies to, “Mike did not say that.” -[Billboard]

No real new news here, but that there seems to be some confusion on the internet today about the status of Adam Yauch’s cancer (at least one big site wrote an article and already pulled it down), and this Billboard article seems to be the one with the facts straight.
