Prophets Of Rage’s Tim Commerford says the band have made plans for a world tour.

The bassist admits the band want to “make it right” after they cancelled seven US shows earlier this month without explanation on their 34-date Make America Rage Again tour.

Commerford tells TeamRock: “We’ve already made plans to tour the world. We are going to tour everywhere. We have to.

“Chuck D always says, this is his word, that we are Earthassins. And we need to jam for the Earth. We need to destroy the Earth.”

When asked about the cancelled US dates, Commerford says: “There’s been a change of plan because, again, the road is full of obstacles when you decide to be a political rock’n’roll band. Sometimes you have to change course, so we’ve had to change course a little bit.

“We have definitely moved to make plans to make that right. So there might be some people out there that are a little bit pissed at us because we’ve had to cancel their city, but we’ll be there. We’re gonna come there and we will make it right at the end of the day.”

The band – which features Rage Against The Machine men Commerford, Brad Wilk and Tom Morello alongside Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill – made their live debut in Los Angeles in May.

They’ll continue their run of live dates next month.
