Rage Against The Machine offshoot Prophets Of Rage have released a stream of their self-titled debut single.

The band revealed their existence in May after RATM’s Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk joined forces with Public Enemy’s Chuck D and DJ Lord plus Cypress Hill’s B-Real.

The band say of the track: “In a year we won’t soon forget, Prophets Of Rage is a song/band for those who feel they no longer have a voice.”

Guitarist Morello recently told Billboard: “The goal is a simple one – the music has to be devastating.

“We talk a lot about the politics, but the cornerstone is that the music has to be authentic, unapologetic and contemporary.”

Prophets Of Rage yesterday staged an open-air concert to protest against the US Republican Party’s National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. They play the same city tonight, before their Make America Rage Again tour commences in August. The single is on sale now.

Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now).
