Rumour has it that this will be the new name of the remainder of Rage Against the Machine after the parting of Zack de la Rocha.

The group will consist of:

Civilian will feature as the support group on Tool's next US-tour, and will be playing at this year's Lollapalooza festival.

Source: MTV Germany's Teletext service, at the time of writing. More info to be added as it becomes available.

Update, 27 Nov 2002: Apparently the name "Civilian" caused copyright issues - the group is now known as Audioslave and has already brought out an eponymous album. Haven't listened to it but will do so as soon as I have the cash to spend!

Update, 7 March 2003: While the group is now well established as Audioslave, I have recently acquired the CD "Civilian - the Demos" by "Rage Against the Machine feat. Chris Cornell" from a small second hand / rare CD shop in Edinburgh called "Hog's Head". The CD contains some demos (studio quality) that the band recorded before the real CD came out, and features several songs off the Audioslave CD, which are slightly different in this demo version (eg, different Tom Morello solos). The complete track list is as follows:

  1. Take It Out On Me
  2. I'll Wait There For You *
  3. I Can't Tell You
  4. Visions Turned To Gold
  5. Gasoline
  6. Within The Outside
  7. Get Yourself A Car
  8. The Last Remaining Light
  9. Toll Me On Your Frozen Fields
  10. Light My Way
  11. Monstered
  12. Pushing Forward Back
  13. Reach Down
  14. Your Saviour
I'll try to get this node rewritten and node a proper review of the Civilian album sometime in the Easter break... can't do it now due to pesky university work eating my free time. ETA April-ish. when I can overcome my laziness for a sufficiently long period.

* This song is called "Like a Stone" on Audioslave. It's possible that some of the songs listed here also have other names on the non-demo album. More info to be added during the easter an unannounced time, to take you by surprise.
