    Beastie Boys Talk Exclusively To Amazon.com About Their New Album And Debut Rare Concert Performances

    MusicDish Network Sponsor

    Amazon.com today announced that in anticipation of the June 15 release of their long-awaited new album, "To The 5 Boroughs," Capitol Records recording artists, Beastie Boys, conducted an exclusive on-camera interview with Amazon.com music editor, Jason Verlinde. The interview and additional bonus material are available beginning today to music fans who pre-order the new album on Amazon.com.

    The exclusive, 10 minute Amazon.com interview was conducted in New York City at Beastie Boys' downtown New York studio several weeks ago. Beastie Boys -- alternately sarcastic and serious -- riff on topics ranging from September 11's impact on the album, to their tongue-in-cheek passion for sub sandwiches (with extra lettuce), to their feelings about the upcoming Presidential race. This rare interview, which is one of only a handful the band will conduct in support of the album, provides an opportunity to observe the bands' unique chemistry and ironic sense of humor.

    Fans who pre-order "To The 5 Boroughs" on Amazon.com beginning today will also be given immediate access, via video stream, to the music videos for "Ch-Check It Out" and two previously unavailable live concert performances--"Sure Shot" and "Super Disco Breakin"--recorded live in Glasgow, Scotland on the 1998-1999 "Hello Nasty" tour.

    "The Amazon.com Beastie Boys interview reflects the eclectic tone of the new album, which includes a diverse array of material from party songs to politically-themed tracks," said Jason Verlinde, Amazon.com senior music editor.
