Rage Against the Machine triggered curiosity with the appearance of two different countdowns on their new website.
Two mysterious countdowns have appeared on one of Rage Against the Machine's websites. The time that is marked 'til August 24 has been associated to the date for their new album or presumably a series of concerts. The other one pointing to Monday is possibly the time to spread the "what's going on".
Speculation has been made previously that the newly reunited band will issue a live album that was taped from their first reunion stage act at Coachella Festival back in April. Meanwhile, some thinks, or more properly, wish that it could be a new studio effort.
Leaving an ambiguity, August 24 might also be the show date in East Troy, Wis. The band hasn't made any performance since the Coachella gig which guitarist Tom Morrello said would be the only reunion performance. One month later however, Morello gave another statement to Billboard.com, "We're having a great time rehearing so the door is certainly open to playing more shows." In fact they owe four headlining shows in Rock the Bells tour along with Wu-Tang Clan and Public Enemy.
