Ill Communication

The 80s golden boys are looking towards the future today by launching their new Ill Communication game on their website dedicated to their recent deluxe re-issue of the classic Beastie Boys 1994 album.  The LP featured joints such as “Sureshot” and “Sabotage”, which won the Beastie video accolades and set off a storm of Halloween costumes. The video game lets you ride around Google Earth in the “Sabotage” car all while listening to the deluxe re-issue which is streamed on the site.  Play the game right here. 

The reissue comes in a variety of combos and deluxe packages, and is a two disc set that contains previously bootlegged joints and remixes.  The Beasties have previously re-released Paul’s Boutique and Check Your Head, and have a Hello Nasty issue coming as well.  All this will lead up to the 9/15 release of their next official LP, The Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 1, which boasts features from the likes of Nas and Santigold.

Check out The Beastie Boys in Chicago on August 6th (Congress Theatre) and August 8th (Lollapalooza). See the tracklist below.
