The highly anticipated, incredibly hyped release from Audioslave (Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commerford of Rage Against the Machine and Chris Cornell of Soundgarden) will now be released on November 19 by Epic. The self-titled album was originally set for release a week later. According to Billboard, the album’s first single, dubbed “Cochise,” will be serviced to radio on October 1.
For those of you who care, Tom Morello released a statement regarding “Cochise.” Here it is – I’ll be quizzing you all at the end of the day (you’ll see what I mean):
“Cochise was the last great American Indian chief to die free and absolutely unconquered. When several members of his family were captured, tortured, and hung by the U.S. Cavalry, Cochise declared war on the entire Southwest and went on an unholy rampage, a warpath to end all warpaths. He and his warriors drove out thousands of settlers. Cochise the Avenger, fearless and resolute, attacked everything in his path with an unbridled fury. This song kinda sounds like that.”
