TOM MORELLO Says There Is A 'Great Amount' Of Unreleased AUDIOSLAVE Music

According to The Pulse Of Radio, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, PROPHETS OF RAGE and AUDIOSLAVE guitarist Tom Morello told BackStory in a new interview that there is "a great amount" of material from the latter band, featuring late singer Chris Cornell, that has yet to see the light of day. When asked about the possibility of it being issued, Morello replied: "There are no plans for that currently to be released, but there's no impediments to being released either."

He continued: "We'll figure it out at some point, but there's a lot of records worth of stuff that didn't get released... There's a few of my favorite AUDIOSLAVE songs that just never fully saw the light of day, so hopefully they'll come out with something."

Morello told The Pulse Of Radio not long ago that he didn't know what would happen with the unreleased music. "You know, we recorded music for AUDIOSLAVE records, and then we recorded more songs than made those records, and I'm certain at some point it will come out, but there's no plans for it," he said. "We had talked about it when, you know, Chris was alive and we thought at some point there will be the right time to put it out. Now I don't know that there's ever a right time to put it out, but there's no reason that it shouldn't come out at some point."

Cornell, Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk played together in AUDIOSLAVE from 2002 to 2007, recording three studio albums and a live LP. The band reunited for a brief set in January 2017 at an event protesting the inauguration of Donald Trump. Morello later said that he and Cornell had discussed doing more AUDIOSLAVE shows before the latter's death in May of that year.
