Rage Against The Machine have hinted that they may record a new album following their free gig in London's Finsbury Park.

The band played the show as a thank you to fans after beating The X Factor contestant Joe McElderry to the top spot last December.

They have now told NME they may use the momentum to get back in the studio to make their first new album since 2000's 'Renegades'.

"I think it's a genuine possibility," said singer Zack de la Rocha of recording a new album. "We have to get our heads around what we’re going to do towards the end of the year and finish up on some other projects and we’ll take it from there."

The band are set to play the O2 venue in Dublin tomorrow (June 8) before headlining the Download festival on Saturday (12).
