Limp Bizkit have been ramping up promotional efforts in anticipation of releasing a new album later in the year. Recently, the group broke their long-standing US touring silence and already the group’s live show is sparking discussion and outcry.
While performing in Ft. Lauderdale on April 25, Fred Durst and crew debuted a cover of Rage Against The Machine‘s “Killing In The Name.” LB did not perform the full song, but the most notable moments were of course used to spur on an already wild crowd. You can view fan captured footage of the cover at the end of this post.
Whether or not a new Limp Bizkit album actually surfaces in 2013 is anyone’s guess, but those hoping to catch the band live will have plenty of chances throughout the year. Click here for tour dates. (more…)
Can you believe it’s been twenty years since Rage Against The Machine released their debut self-titled album? In 1992, the politically charged rap/rock hybrid group came right out of the gate with one of the most disturbing and controversial photographs of the 20th century as their album cover, a bold statement that showed the world just how serious they were about making an impact. Since then, Rage has been one of the most influential bands in the world, aiding not only in the world of music, but in the world of political activism as well.
Now, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their momentous first album, they will be re-issuing the record in multiple limited edition box set formats entitled Rage Against The Machine – XX. According to NME.com, the release will “contain a remastered version of the album, demos and previously unseen live footage as well as a film of their 2010 gig in Finsbury Park and new liner notes written by Public Enemy‘s Chuck D. The deluxe box set will include “two CDs, two DVDs, one 180g vinyl LP, one 40-page booklet and two-sided poster, or as a Special Edition with two CDs and a bonus DVD featuring six tracks.” There will also be a 180g vinyl edition and a single CD edition with three bonus tracks. Rage Against The Machine – XX is set to be released on November 26th. For more details and track-listings, click here.

In possibly the most pleasant exchange that has ever resulted from TMZ accosting a celebrity on the street, former Rage Against The Machine bassist Tim Commerford has shyly hinted at a possible new album from the funk metal pioneers. When asked if the defunct group were working on a new album, Commerford quietly answered, “Maybe¦maybe.” Since the band’s breakup twelve years ago, vocalist Zack de la Rocha has worked on a string of collaborations with various artists, while the remaining three Rage members “ Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello, and drummer Brad Wilk “ formed Audioslave with Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. Though Rage have performed several festival dates since their official breakup, there has been no substantial news about a new album yet. The vague TMZ interview with Commerford provides the most information that fans will get about a new album thus far. That, and his apparent appreciation for Gucci Mane’s facial tattoos and his penchant for “removing teeth” as a fashion statement.
