Prophets Of Rage: Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Chuck D, B-Real and DJ Lord have shared ‘Radical Eyes’, a new track from their forthcoming, self-titled debut LP which is set for release September 15th, 2017.
Burning with a razor sharp message and a deep, unrelenting groove, ‘Radical Eyes’ is the third track to be unveiled from the band’s new album following the previously released ‘Unfuck The World’ and ‘Living on the 110’. “The Western world has created biased structures and stereotypes,” explains Chuck D. “Opposing viewpoints and movements are seen as radical rather than diversity. ‘Radical Eyes’ is the lens everything is viewed through, any life movement in opposition is considered radicalised.”
Listen to ‘Radical Eyes’ BELOW:
Prophets of Rage will mark the album release with a string of special east coast club shows along with festival performances at Riot Fest in Chicago, Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville, KY, Houston Open Air Festival, Voodoo Music & Arts Experience in New Orleans and Ozzfest in San Bernardino, CA. Upcoming tour dates below.
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, Cypress Hill’s manically playful party energy.
