Prophets Of Rage: Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Chuck D, B-Real and DJ Lord, have announced their self-titled debut album will be out September 15.
The supergroup have released a new single ‘Unfuck the World’, a blistering song that — not surprisingly given the creators — falls somewhere between Public Enemy, Rage Against The Machine and Cypress Hill. It’s angry protest music, and it has a violent sign-of-the-times video clip directed by Michael Moore.
“I am thrilled to once again be working with my old friends and comrades in the struggle for a just world,” said Moore of the video. “Prophets Of Rage is the right band, saying the right shit, at this very critical moment. This music video is our collective battle cry against those who seek to harm the innocent and the powerless. I am proud to have directed this video and I ask all who see it do their part to unfuck this world. ALL HANDS ON DECK!”
“There were rhythms before there were words,” Morello says of the power to use sound to transform minds. “Music has both the ability to reflect and transform the times. There’s a long history of that, from slave spirituals, to ‘We Shall Overcome,’ to the Sex Pistols.”
“The music is the passport to the world,” Chuck D says. “It’s not always a given to have members who want to go where few have gone.”
