Audioslave unveil 'kick ass' third album

And the supergroup have gone all political on us too

Audioslave unveil 'kick ass' third album
Audioslave have described the sound of their forthcoming third album as "Led Zeppelin meets Earth, Wind And Fire".

Guitarist Tom Morello has also revealed that the record will be more "political" than anything the band have written before and many of the songs slated to appear on the LP were tested on the road.

He told MTV News: "Its a record that sounds like Led Zeppelin meets Earth, Wind & Fire.

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

Songs slated to appear on the as-yet-untitled album which was produced by Brendan O'Brien who also mixed their second album 'Out Of Exile', include 'Until We Fall', 'Moth', 'Hammer Of The Gods', 'Revelations', 'One In The Same', 'Sound Of A Gun', 'Original Fire', 'Until We Fall', 'Shape Of Things To Come', 'Wide Awake' and 'Broken City'.

Speaking about the track 'Wide Awake', the former Rage Against The Machine guitarist added: "It's the most political song Audioslave's ever written, and it's a scathing condemnation of the Bush administration's failures in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. It's a sad, powerful and angry song."
