Adam Yauch's cancer treatment is 'going we'll', so the band may return later this year


Beastie BoysAdam Yauch says the band are hoping to release their new album ‘Hot Sauce Committee Part I’ in September, as his treatment for cancer is going well.

The band were due to release the album last year, but delayed it due to Yauch receiving treatment for cancer of the preaortic gland and lymph node.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the rapper said the band are likely to make a few changes to the album before its release.

“I feel better,” Yauch said. “It was touch and go there for a while, but I am finally getting my energy back.”

He added, “It was really disappointing to have to hold the record and postpone the tour, but doctor’s orders. We may or may not [release ‘Hot Sauce Committee Part I’] depending on how my health is come September. We want to but we have to play it by ear.”

Referring to the changes the band may make to the album, he said, “I was just talking to Adam [Horovitz, fellow band member] and Mike [D] today on the phone and we were talking about working on it a bit.

“We finished the record over a year ago, so we want to take a look at it and re-evaluate and make sure it is what we want to put out there and that we are still happy with it. I don’t think we will change it up too much.”
