Prophets Of Rage stream The Party’s Over

Prophets Of Rage

Prophets Of Rage have streamed their track The Party’s Over, from their debut EP of the same name.

The six-track title is on sale today, while the Rage Against The Machine offshoot continue their first US tour.

The band features Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk alongside Chuck D and DJ Lord of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill.

Bassist Commerford, who’s opening each tour date with his other band Wakrat, tells Rolling Stone: “I’m a bass player first and foremost, and that’s where these bands cross.

“I’m so proud of what I’m doing in both bands. Prophets of Rage is more an aerobic, musical, bass-player thing, whereas Wakrat is more of a mental strain for my brain and for my heart. It’s different and I’m excited to see how it works out.”

He adds: “When I see people talk about history, what are the 10 best punk bands of all time, I never see Rage on that list.

“I always go, ‘That’s bullshit,’ because Rage is a punk band. We were a punk band and our ethics were punk. We didn’t do anything that anyone wanted us to do, and that’s the essence of punk rock.”

Prophets Of Rage were joined on stage by Foo Fighters mainman Dave Grohl earlier this week.
