Self-titled CD out November 19:
- Audioslave is Cornell on vocals and ex-Ragers Tom Morello on guitar, Tim Commerford on bass, and Brad Wilk on drums. The album was recorded in Los Angeles at Oceanway Studios with producer Rick Rubin. In July rough demos from the album were leaked to the Internet, a move that left Morello raging.
The album’s first single and video will be “Cochise,” with the clip directed by Mark Romanek. Morello said in a label statement: “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.”
