Is RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE Working On New Album?

Is a new RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE album in the works? Probably not, but that didn't stop bassist Tim Commerford from having some fun with the ever-gullible cameramen of TMZ.com. Asked outside a cafe in Malibu, California if the band was planning on bringing out a new album, Commerford teased, "Maybe . . . maybe." The bassist then quickly changed the subject to his missing front tooth, which he touted as the result of his new hobby: "removing teeth."

Even though RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE reunited in 2007, the band has never given any indication that it plans to write or record new material.

As late as last year, guitarist Tom Morello told The Pulse Of Radio that a new album was not on the quartet's agenda: "Right now there are no — you know, the band is not writing songs, the band is not in the studio. We get along famously and we all, you know, intend to do more RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE stuff in the future, but beyond sort of working out a concert this year, there's nothing else on the schedule."

That concert, the L.A. Rising festival in the summer of 2011, was RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE's last live appearance to date.
