Assembling as a politically-charged response to 2016’s tumultuous election year, PROPHETS OF RAGE, features TOM MORELLO, TIM COMMERFORD, BRAD WILK, CHUCK D, B-REAL and DJ LORD.  Best described by Morello as an, “elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bullshit,” the group combines the sonic firepower of Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill.  The band will release their EP “The Party’s Over” on August 26th available through digital download, streaming services and physical retail, released through Caroline.  The EP will be available for pre-order on August 19th, the same day the Make America Rage Again Tour begins.  Prior to release, two tracks will premiere on Beats 1, Apple Music’s global radio station.  “No Sleep Til Cleveland” will premiere with Matt Wilkinson on August 18th and “The Party’s Over” will premiere with Zane Lowe on August 25th.

In the meantime, fans can visit the band’s website to stream the song “Prophets Of Rage” at www.prophetsofrage.com.  A re-imagination of the original Public Enemy song of the same name, with new music and a new original verse from B-Real, the song gave life to the band’s name.

Storming through Cleveland during the RNC and setting the rock world abuzz with sold-out shows at The Whisky, The Hollywood Palladium and Warsaw in Brooklyn that had thousands of hopeful fans lined up, the band has proven to be social media magnet from the start, setting #MakeAmericaRAGEAgain and #TakeThePowerBack trending virally.  In what the LA Times headlined simply as “REVOLUTIONARY,” the band’s MAKE AMERICA RAGE AGAIN TOUR made its first three stops at LA’s Skid Row, the RNC protests in Cleveland, and outside the walls of NORCO Penitentiary.  The tour is headed for the rest of America and will include stops in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville and Atlanta before concluding in San Diego, mere weeks before 2016 Election Day. A portion of the proceeds from each Prophets Of Rage concert will benefit a local charity that works to help the homeless and the hungry.
