“These guys sounded like a revolution in the making” — LA TIMES
“Prophets of Rage Set Defiant Tone at Explosive L.A. Debut” — Rolling Stone
“A historic event…unity, passion, anger and inspiration” —LA WEEKLY
Best described by Morello as an “elite task force of revolutionary musicians,” Prophets of Rage combines the sonic firepower of Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemyand Cypress Hill. The band has said that “dangerous times demand dangerous songs” and has fans using #MakeAmericaRAGEAgain and #TakeThePowerBack to engage across social media. In what the LA Times headlined simply as “REVOLUTIONARY,” the band’s mission is clear, promising “No Sleep till Cleveland,” the home of the 2016 Republican National Convention, where they performed on July 19th. Beginning August 19th, the tour has also added AWOLNATION to the bill. “We are super psyched to have AWOLNATION on tour with us. Aaron Bruno is an amazing musician and his band is sick and heavy, just the way we like it. They are gonna be awesome,” said Tim Commerford.
Following two sold-out shows at The Whisky and The Hollywood Palladium that had thousands of hopeful fans lined up in Los Angeles, and a sold-out show in Brooklyn at Warsaw Ballroom, the group announced a national North American tour. The “Make America Rage Again” Tour kicked off in Cleveland, Ohio on July 19, in tandem with the Republican National Convention. From there the tour will include stops in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville, and their September 30 date in St. Augustine before concluding in San Diego, mere weeks before 2016 Election Day. A portion of the proceeds from each show will benefit a local homeless charity.
Wakrat is a trio composed of Tim Commerford (bassist for Rage Against the Machine), Mathias Wakrat and Laurent Grangeon. The heavily alt-punk-influenced group are currently finishing up their debut album, and recently released a video of a song called “Knucklehead”.
