Prophets Of Rage have launched their first official music video for their self-titled lead track.

The band features Rage Against The Machine members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk, along with Chuck D and DJ Lord of Public Enemy and B Real of Cypress Hill. They released their debut EP The Party’s Over last month.

The video was shot during a series of performances that saw them playing for prison inmates and political protestors, pursuing their ambition to “make America rage again.”

D said of their prison show: “We wanted to be part of a little bit of enlightenment to inmates here. Every little second of light and hope is a good thing, and that’s the true meaning of rehabilitation.”

He’d previously said that the lineup were “keeping the seat warm” for RATM frontman Zack de la Rocha in case he decided to join in. De la Rocha released solo track Digging For Windows last week.

Prophets Of Rage are currently touring the US, and plan to appear in other parts of the world in due course.
