Prophets Of Rage Xfinity Center Aug 20 - EP Due August 26

The all-star Prophets Of Rage will be delivering some music to coincide with its upcoming North American "Make America Rage Again" tour, and their much anticipated stop at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, August 20th (Saturday!)  Win tickets from Alt 92.9 here.

The "supergroup" -- which features Rage Against The Machine instrumentalist Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk along with Cypress Hill MC B-Real and Public Enemy's Chuck D and DJ Lord -- will release an EP, The Party’s Over, on August 26. The title track is the sole new original song from the group, and the rest of the EP features a new rendition of Public Enemy's "Prophets Of Rage" and live performances of "Killing In The Name," "Shut 'Em Down" and "No Sleep 'Til Cleveland."

Morello tells us that while the group shares a focus on politics and the upcoming presidential election, it's also important that the music be excellent:

"The goal is a simple one, is that the music has to be devastating. All these interviews we talk a lot about the politics, but it starts, the cornerstone is that the music has to be devastating and (we) have to, like I said, have to not just be competitive with our legacies but has to in 2016 be something that goes beyond that."

 

Prophets Of Rage's tour kicks off Friday (August 19) in Fairfax, Va., with 30 dates booked through October 16.

Here they are live on Kimmel with "Killing in the Name of":
