Tim Commerford’s Wakrat issue Generation Fucked lyric video

Wakrat press shot

Wakrat have released a lyric video for their track Generation Fucked.

The band is led by Prophets Of Rage’s Tim Commerford, with the song lifted from their self-titled debut album, which is due out on November 8 – the day of the US presidential election.

The politically charged promo features imagery of 911, footage of politicians and violent street protests.

Commerford previously told NME: “We are gearing up to be on the offensive, assaulting the populous with our debut album on Earache Records. We have put a shit load of blood and sweat into this and we want it back.

“Our mission is to attack modern music and smash the grid. Unapologetic, unrelenting, unbridled and uncensored. Understood?”

The band have also registered their own Republic Of Wakrat in London’s Parliament Square – a campaign which promotes equality, free movement and environmental awareness. They urge fans to gather there for their Declaration Of Foundation at 8pm GMT on July 26 before the band’s gig at Camden’s Black Heart venue that night.

Wakrat will then support Prophets Of Rage on their North American tour.

The album is available for pre-order in a variety of bundles directly through Earache Records website.
