Beastie Boys revealed the cover for their forthcoming album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two on their official website today. The album is scheduled to be released on May 3, 2011.
The cover art included the following caption:
Since the dawn of time, and perhaps even before, there was a silent order who were tasked with a mission. They held their secret tightly. On may 3rd the HOT SAUCE COMMITTEE PART TWO will be unleashed on the general public. Hold fast ye heathens.
We've seen quite a few of these square pixel designs lately. I think it is more appropriate for an electronic music artist than Beastie Boys.
