Zach de la Rocha recently revealed in an interview with La Tercera, a long-running Chilean newspaper, that Rage Against the Machine is working on a new album due out next year.
In the La Tercera interview, the RATM frontman revealed that since the band’s 2007 reunion, they have been a more cohesive, mature unit. He added that the group is working a new album that may drop in the summer of 2011.
Other sites have put the statement in question into Google Translator and come up with some interesting results, but roughly translated, de la Rocha said the following:
Q: The band reunited in 2007. How was this second life going to go?
A: Very well, we are all older and more mature and we don’t fall into the problems we encountered 10 or 15 years ago. This is different and we projected a lot. We are working on a new album that will come out next year, perhaps in the summer in the northern hemisphere.
If this album actually is released, it will serve as RATM’s first release since 1999’s Battle of Los Angeles.
