With little other info, the Beastie Boys have announced that they’re delaying “indefinitely” their release of “Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 album,” but are still on track to unleash “Part 2” on time, in Spring 2011.
The announcement was made in a short post on the trio’s website within the last day.
The veteran hip-hop and experimental rock group perhaps felt compelled to address their goings-on, after reports surfaced that Adam “MCA” Yauch — who has been battling cancer — was “feeling better” and that the band could be back in the studio.
Yauch was diagnosed with having a tumor in his salivary gland last summer. It has been a number of months since he, MCA or Ad-Rock have released an update on the state of his health.
