Wakrat have released a video for their track Generation Fucked.
The trio fronted by Rage Against The Machine and Prophets Of Rage bassist Tim Commerford recorded the promo recently in London while driving a bunch of friends and family around the capital in a double decker bus plastered with the slogan #GenerationFucked.
Commerford led the group to Parliament Square to protest the situation Commerford says the current generation has found itself in.
Commerford is joined in the band by drummer Mathias Wakrat and guitarist Laurent Grangeon and he recently said: “We’re clearly not making music for anyone else – we’re making music for ourselves.
“It’s the kind of music we want to play and I love that it’s punk rock but it’s not old school. It feels contemporary.
“The first day that we came in this room, I brought my amps in and quickly realised that my amps are not powerful enough to hang with either one of these dudes. I had never experienced anything like that before.
“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. And that’s what we’re trying to do – smash the grid.”
The trio are working on their self-titled debut album, which is set for release on November 8 via Earache. It’s available for pre-order now.
