Adam Horovitz has said that Beastie Boys will not tour to promote their new album, ‘Hot Sauce Committee Part Two’, until the group’s Adam Yauch has fully recovered from the cancer he was diagnosed with in 2009.

Horovitz told WENN: “He’s doing OK. He’s still in treatment, so it’s not 100%, but things are looking good. We’re not touring, we’re just getting the record out – and we’re not making any plans until he is better. Which is definitely going to happen”.

He added that Yauch’s illness and recovery would likely have a strong impact on their next album: “I have a feeling the next record is going to be the most insane party record you ever heard. Because if you go through something like what Yauch’s going through, I mean, shit. After that, you must feel pretty good”.
