Rage Against The Machine To Record Again?

Killyourstereo.com reports that although guitarist Tom Morello has repeatedly turned down numerous offers to record again with Rage Against the Machine, rumours abound that the reunited political rap-rock giants will enter the studio in the near future to record their first album since 2000's "Renegades."

The band has not revealed a release date, nor confirmed if their longtime label Epic Records will handle the new album. Since reuniting in 2007, Rage Against the Machine has been touring and playing festivals almost non-stop. Vocalist Zach de la Rocha even found time to release a self-titled EP with former Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore under the name One Day as a Lion.

Morello has also been sowing his creative seeds with his own solo project, The Nightwatchman, and according to him, that's all he needs. "[The Nightwatchman is] my principal musical focus, as I see it, for the remainder of my life. From the earliest days of playing open mic nights at coffee houses, it was apparent to me that this music was as important to me as any music I've ever been involved in. It really encapsulates everything I want to do as an artist," he says.

Right now, the band have no plans to tour or play any more live shows, although Morello noted that he doesn't "see any reason to not play more shows."

Morello Says RATM Has No Plan To Record In 2009

Billboard.com reports: With two albums out, more than 50 songs that have not yet been recorded and a world gone awry, Tom Morello plans to stay busy as the Nightwatchman for the foreseeable future.

But one project he won't be working on is a new album from Rage Against The Machine, which reformed in 2007 after a seven-year break.

"There are no plans for that," Morello tells Billboard. "We've had a wonderful year and a half of playing shows, and I don't see any reason to not play more shows. The thing is there's only so many hours in the musical day, and mine are very occupied right now."

Morello And Slash To Guest On Cypress Hill Album

Billboard.com reports: With his first solo album just out, rapper Sen Dog is looking forward to new projects with his group concerns.

The MC, who released “Diary of a Mad Dog” this week and plans to do some touring soon to promote the album, tells Billboard.com that CYPRESS HILL is “in the process” of making a new album, which will be the follow-up to 2004’s “Till Death Do Us Part.” “We’ve got 30 songs done,” says Sen Dog, who describes the album as “definitely hard-core hip-hop. I wouldn’t say it’s overly hardcore, but it’s definitely a hip-hop album.”

The set will include writing and production collaborations with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello on a track called “Rise Up” and with LINKIN PARK’s Mike Shinoda on another song. GUNS N’ ROSES/VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash, meanwhile, plays on a tune called “Front Line.” But Sen Dog (real name Serien Reyes) says the final guest list will be relatively small. More...

Morello's Spokesperson Denies RATM Rumors

Earlier this week, a rumor quickly made its way across the blogosphere that the reunited Rage Against The Machine were beginning work on an album of new material.

Apparently, a "source," possibly from within the band's label, Sony, said that the band was readying new songs to be released in 2009."We're hopeful," the source explained, "but a new album is far from definite."

MusicRadar spoke with a spokesperson for guitarist Tom Morello, who said the story was "officially and unequivocally without merit. I can categorically deny this rumor. The band has no plans on recording new material."

That would appear to be that then. Since Rage Against The Machine reunited as a live act in 2007, they have been beseiged by questions as to when they enter the studio again (their last album was 2000's Renegades, which was comprised mostly of cover tunes).

During an interview last year, Morello addressed the subject of a new album: "There are no plans to do that." he said. "That's a whole other ball of wax right there. Writing and recording albums is a whole different thing than getting back on the bike (laughs), you know, and playing these songs. But I think that the one thing about the Rage catalog is that to me none of it feels dated. You know, it doesn't feel at all like a nostalgia show. It feels like these are songs that were born and bred to be played now."

Band members concentrating on separate projects. This past August, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, singer Zach de la Rocha has this to say: "We're going to keep playing shows - we have a couple of big ones happening in front of both conventions. As far as us recording music in the future, I don't know where we all fit with that. We've all embraced each other's projects and support them, and that's great."

Those side projects include Morello's just-released second album as The Nightwatchman, The Fabled City, and de la Rocha's new band called One Day As A Lion.

Currently, there are no additional Rage Against The Machine shows scheduled for this year, but the band hasn't ruled out future live work. Just don't go looking for a new album. As Morello's spokesperson put it, "We don't know where these rumors come from, but that's all this is: a rumor."

In related - but not really metal - news, Tom Morello has released a video for his latest single, "Whatever It Takes," which you can watch below: More...

RATM To Record New Album?

According to a Twistedear.com, Rage Against The Machine is apparently readying to record their first album of new material in nearly ten years. The report says that the band is in talks of recording their new album for their longtime label Sony and expect to release it in 2009, a source explained: "We're hopeful, but a new album is far from definite."

Frontman Zack de la Rocha, who just recently started a new band One Day As A Lion, also spoke to Los Angeles Times last month about the possibility of new material, saying:

"We’re going to keep playing shows - we have a couple of big ones happening in front of both conventions. As far as us recording music in the future, I don’t know where we all fit with that. We’ve all embraced each other’s projects and support them, and that’s great."

One Day As A Lion Signs To Anti Records

Anti Records has signed One Day As A Lion, the new project of Zack de la Rocha (Rage Against the Machine) and Jon Theodore (The Mars Volta). The band will be releasing its self-titled debut EP on July 22nd.

Here is the tracklisting:

1. Wild International
2. Ocean View
3. Last Letter
4. If You Fear Dying
5. One Day As A Lion

The band writes:

"One Day As A Lion is both a warning delivered and a promise kept."

"A defiant affirmation of the possibilities that exist in the space between kick and snare. It’s a sonic reflection of the visceral tension between a picturesque fabricated cultural landscape, and the brutal socioeconomic realities it attempts to mask. One Day As A Lion is a recorded interaction between Zack de la Rocha and Jon Theodore from Los Angeles, California."

"The name taken from the infamous 1970 black and white, captured by legendary Chicano photographer George Rodriguez featuring a center framed tag on a white wall in an unspecified section of Boyle Heights. It reads: 'It's better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb.' This record is a stripped down attempt to realize this sentiment in sound."
