AUDIOSLAVE: Sophomore Album Due In June - Jan. 7, 2005
Source: Blabbermouth

A source at Epic Records has exclusively told The Zone that the second album from AUDIOSLAVE will arrive in June. Singer Chris Cornell, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk have been working on the follow-up to their 2002 debut since last year, and Morello said he couldn't be more excited about the results. "It sounds awesome," he said. "It's a ridiculously rocking record, and I think it far surpasses the first one, which I loved. I thought the first record was great, but we've really gelled as a band and, you know, having a year of touring under our belts, we've become and kind of grown into ourselves as a band. It sounds awesome."

More information about the record, including its title and a specific release date, is not yet available.

AUDIOSLAVE's self-titled debut disc has sold over two million copies. The band has an unusual record label arrangement: because vocalist Chris Cornell, formerly of SOUNDGARDEN, was signed to Interscope Records, that company issued AUDIOSLAVE's debut. But since the other members of the group were signed to Epic when they were in RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, that label gets to release the second AUDIOSLAVE disc. Future releases from AUDIOSLAVE will continue to flip between the two labels.

why can't they just go away? soundgarden and rage were great but together they blow.
I personally never liked Soundgarden or Audio Slave....Chris's voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. I wish they'd write something that really rocked like Velvet Revolver stuff. If the new album has some rockin' tunes on it, I might give it a chance but Cornell's voice irritates me so bad I can't really focus on the music much....:irk:

I can't stand them. Separatly they were great bands, but together they help dissolve the thought of a guitar solo. I could do without them. They blow. :thumbsdow

Audioslave is great, but they got a bit toooooo overplayed for me. I haven't taken out that cd in ages, but I do remember enjoying it alot. I'm anxious to hear the new album.

I thought that Audioslave record was one of the best rock records to come out of the 00's so far.
Totally agree FH...great rock as well as a sorta U2 vibe on some of the songs. 'Getaway Car' would be my fave song.
