Event Information

 

Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, Chuck D and DJ Lord of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill have lived the resistance from day one.  So it’s no surprise that in the midst of 2016’s tumultuous election, the revolutionary musicians would join together as Prophets Of Rage to combat the coming storm.
While the fierce independence and enduring influence of their collective lineage is nearly impossible to overstate, these creative kindred spirits knew immediately this was a different beast. At its core, Prophets Of Rage functions not only on a love of music, but a deep belief in its power as a tool and a weapon. Woven into the band’s DNA are influences as varied as The Clash, KRS-One, and Johnny Cash, as well as the undeniable ideals and aesthetics of its predecessors: Public Enemy’s frenzied, racing textures, Rage’s jaw-melting riffs, and Cypress Hill’s manically playful party energy. 
Prophets Of Rage, their internationally acclaimed, self-titled debut LP, released on September 15th, 2017, exemplifies the band’s commitment to creating a more decent and humane world. The 12 explosive tracks, produced by Brendan O’Brien, deftly fuses their diverse styles into an inventive and commanding new musical statement. 
After performing headline shows at arenas and festivals around the world, Prophets Of Rage have coalesced into a fiery unit capable of playing with equal parts precision, passion and muscle. The band partners with activists and social justice organizations in cities along the way, contributing a portion of the proceeds to the fight against hunger and homelessness.
