AUDIOSLAVE Guitarist On New CD: 'If You Want Your Ass Kicked, You've Come To The Right Place'

AUDIOSLAVE guitarist Tom Morello has told that the band finished tracking their third album, tentatively titled "Revelations", three weeks ago with producer Brendan O'Brien. The follow-up to last year's "Out of Exile", which will be issued later than its previously announced June release date, is being described by Morello as "really unique" and "as hard-rockin' an album as we've ever made."

"If you want your ass kicked, you've come to the right place," he added. "And you may have the opportunity to shake that ass too."

Most of the 20 tracks the bandmembers brought into the studio "were written before we went on the last U.S. tour, so we had about two months of touring to play some of these songs in front of arenas and to go over them during a number of soundchecks."

AUDIOSLAVE took "the momentum of playing some of the best shows of our lives, as well as working out the kinks of some of these songs in front of a live audience, seeing what worked and didn't work," and recorded 16 tracks over the course of three weeks, Morello said. The "fast and furious pace," as Morello described it, was imposed by O'Brien because he wanted to capture "the intensity of the performance — the four of us, in a room, rocking the jam, top to bottom, to get the sweatiest, most intense take."
