Bad News: Ill Communication

Sad news: the Beastie Boys have been forced to push back the release of their new album and cancel several upcoming concert dates (including, unfortunately, the Lollapalooza and All Points West fests) as band member Adam Yauch will be receiving treatment for cancer. Yaunch made the announcement via a short homemade video on the band's website in which he discusses feeling a lump in his throat a couple months back and having it recently diagnosed as as cancer in his parotid gland as well as in a lymph node. While the outlook is very positive, the fans are sure to be in an upset. No word yet as to who will be filling in for the Beasties at the remaining summer music fests.*

(*UPDATE: 7/21 - Yeah Yeah Yeahs are filling in for the Beasties at Lollapalooza. I was hoping for Blur, but so it goes)
