Beastie Boys Album Delayed
MCA is suffering from cancer…

The Beastie Boys' new album Hot Sauce Committee Pt 1 has had its release delayed because band member Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch is suffering from cancer.
The group released a video message on their website where Yauch explained he is having treatment on a tumour in his throat.
With fellow member Ad-Rock by his side he said: “About two months ago, I started feeling this little lump in my throat, like what you would feel if you have swollen glands or something like that... and so I didn't really think it was anything.
“But then recently, when we were over in Europe doing promotion, I started to think that I should talk to my doctor, so I ... saw him when I got back, and he sent me to a specialist.
“They did tests, and I actually have a form of cancer in the gland that's over here, in the parotid gland, and it's also in the lymph node right in that area."
Hot Sauce Committee Pt 1 was due for release in September and the rap legends had already released a cover for the album and started interviews to promote the record. Headlining slots at US festicvals have also been cancelled.
Yauch explained that the cancer is localised and will not affect his voice. MCA said: “This is something that's very treatable, and in most cases ... they're able to completely get rid of it, and people don't have continuing problems with it.”
Get well soon Adam!
