Prophets Of Rage have released a stream of their new track Living On The 110.
The song will feature on the band’s upcoming self-titled album which arrives on September 15 – and follow’s 2016’s The Party’s Over.
Speaking about the track, guitarist Tom Morello exclusively tells Metal Hammer: “In the United States, freeways have numbers on them and in Los Angeles there’s the 110 and the homeless population exploded during the Obama administration – it was always there but it exploded under Obama.
“So you have this ironic daily juxtaposition of Bentleys and Rolls Royces rolling over the impoverished and it’s an analogy for the world where the five richest families have as much wealth as the poorest two billion people.
“Living On The 110 holds up a mirror to that situation. How do you respond to that? Do you hold up your window or do you get involved in some way? The way we responded was we played a show there.”
B-Real adds: “Living On The 110 opens the eyes of those that don’t see the ever growing problems of the poverty stricken.”
Last month, Prophets Of Rage released a video for Unfuck The World – the first track from the new album which was recorded with former Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave producer Brendan O’Brien.
Prophets Of Rage is available to order now from iTunes (opens in new tab).
