Rage Against The Machine may be secretly working on a new album.

When confronted by US gossip site TMZ while leaving a café in Malibu, California, bassist Tim Commerford coyly hinted that the metal band may be recording their fifth studio album.

In the video interview, which you can see below, when asked if the band are working on new material, Commerford says, "maybe…maybe." While it's not the most concrete of evidence, if true, it would be Rage Against The Machine's first album since 2000's 'Renegades'.

The band disbanded in 2000, following singer Zack de la Rocha's departure. The rest of the band went on to form Audioslave with Soundgarden's Chris Cornell until 2007 when the reformed to play Coachella festival.

Since then the band have played a series of gigs, including an infamous 2010 free gig at Finsbury Park in London to celebrate their track 'Killing In The Name' beating the X Factor to Christmas Number One, and last played live in July 2011 in LA.
