Wakrat launch Sober Addiction track


Wakrat – led by Rage Against The Machine and Prophets Of Rage bassist Tim Commerford – have streamed their track Sober Addiction.

It’s taken from their self-titled debut album, set for launch on November 11 via Earache. Hear the track below.

Last week the trio – completed by Mathias Wakrat and Laurent Grangeon – released a video for Generation Fucked, shot while they staged a political protest in London.

Commerford recently said: “We’re not making music for anyone else. We’re making music for ourselves.

“We’re three human beings and we got all different types of influences that flow through us. Right now, when I turn on the radio I’m hearing the grid – and I’m sick of the grid.

“That’s what we’re trying to do: smash the grid.”

Wakrat are currently touring North America with Prophets Of Rage, with both bands remaining on the road until October 16. Full dates below. The album is available for pre-order.
