New Rage Against the Machine album in the cards?
2008-09-30 by Alex101 | 38 Comments

According to Ultimate-Guitar.com, Rage Against the Machine are apparently readying to record their first album of new material in nearly ten years. The American political rock act reformed for a world tour earlier last year, and they are now considering recording their first album of original material since 1999's The Battle of Los Angeles.

Although no further more details regarding their first post-reunion album have been confirmed, the report says that the band is in talks of recording the new album for their longtime label Sony and expects to release it in 2009. The band noted: "We're hopeful, but a new album is far from definite."

Rage Against the Machine last released Renegades, which is comprised entirely of cover songs, shortly after breaking up in October 2000.

Even though RATM will always be one of my favorite bands, I'm a bit skeptical. I just don't see how they'll be able to compete with their first three LPs.

they'll have plenty of political material to draw on! Bush has helped shape a lot of great political songs, it's only right Rage gets their shot in too. Luckly he'll be out of office by the time the album is expected but they can still reflect on the mess he left america in.

Whether or not this album is released/sucks, I am damn well gonna see them live the very first time I get the chance! Without Tom Morello, my best guitar playing would simply be the quality of your average Linkin Park riff, and without Zack, my biggest inspiration would probably be Dave Grohl. Without these guys, my music tastes would most likely be based solely in the absolute mainstream. Thank you RATM!

Dude, they don't even really have to address Bush. After this terrible economic collapse, McCain being a big ole' douche, Sarah Palin being an uninformed cunt.....

I could go on.

They have plenty of things to be pissed about.

And ironically enough it was the Republicans in 2004 trying to convince the democrats in congress that Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were going to collapse and the democrats in the House said that "there was no evidence showing any instability" in those firms...but yea don't mention that...it's John McCain's fault...except for the fact that he wanted more regulation against Freddie Mac before the collapse but the House Dems refused...yea don't mention that. Well you probably didn't mention it because you don't really have a clue.

Hey, jackass. Not to go on about politics, but in no where in my previous post did I mention that the economic collapse and the bailout not taking hold was McCain's fault. Learn how to comprehend.

McCain's actions in the past week or 2 have proven that he is a flip flopper, and not trustworthy.

Anyways, its impossible to debate anything about this with AP07373. Since from all of your posts you seem like a blind right wing asshole being led along by your dick.

Weren't you the one claiming they went into Iraq to get rid of Saddam and get rid of Al Qaeda? Yeah, please don't post anymore. Thanks.

I've seen this posted before, so I gotta ask: in 2004, the republicans had a house and senate majority... so, how exactly was it that they failed to pass these regulations because of the democrats?

seems to me like you're just being partisan for the sake of being partisan, not unlike the poster you replied to, but w/e.

YES!
Who would have thought 2 years ago that this could happen?
This would be another dream come true for us Rage fans. (first being the reunion)
They might suprise suspicious people and make the best album of 2009.

Without jumping on the politics bandwagon, it does suck the record won't be done by the election. i don't want a fall out boy record on election day.

all politics and finger pointing aside, it's gonna be great to hear new stuff from an excellent band.
