Rage Against The Machine Are Not Reuniting
Rage Against The Machine are not reuniting – but reports suggest members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk are gearing up to reveal a supergroup featuring members of Public Enemy and Cypress Hill.
The band yesterday unveiled a countdown clock at Prophetsofrage.com along with the hashtag #TakeThePowerBack, which also appeared on posters displayed around their hometown Los Angeles, while Public Enemy’s Chuck D posted a series of RATM videos.
A source has told Billboard that the new band, Prophets Of Rage (referencing a 1998 Public Enemy song of the same name), will include Chuck D and Cypress Hill’s B-Real, and that they’ll perform their first shows early next month.
An RATM spokesperson told Rolling Stone that the band were not about to announce a reunion, adding: “There’s a lot more to it. There are a lot of moving parts – a lot of exciting news to be revealed. There are more announcements to come.”
