The Beastie Boys' eighth LP, Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 1, which was delayed after Adam Yauch was diagnosed with salivary-gland cancer last year, is scheduled to come out in September. The band has continued to work on the LP while Yauch recovers. "It's not a radical reworking." says Mike D. "It's just a massaging."
