In a new Guardian fan Q&A, Tom Morello said he would be open to reuniting Rage Against The Machine to play a show in support of a second Brexit referendum. He also ripped Nigel Farage for using the RATM name for his podcast.
Would RATM play a show in support of a second Brexit referendum……?? Right now we need “fists in the air in the land of hypocrisy”….. xx
“If a Rage Against the Machine show breaks out, count me in…”
Given his theft of your name and IP for his ridiculous podcast, any chance you might ‘accidentally’ give Nigel Farage the dry slap he needs?
“I am open to accidentally giving Nigel a dry slap, if I encounter him on the tube. Though I doubt he rides the tube for fear of all the dry slaps he would receive. Regardless, that son of a bitch better stop using RATM as an underpinning for his racist diatribes, or we’re coming for him. Warning issued!”
Rage Against The Machine are reissuing their entire discography on vinyl, the band have announced on their official website. You can buy the albums in bundles with t-shirts for the records. The bundles cost $42.99.
The remastered new editions of 1992’s Rage Against the Machine, 1996’s Evil Empire, 1999’s The Battle of Los Angeles, 2000’s Renegades, and 2003’s Live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium will be available on September 28th. You can view screenshots Alternative Nation took from RATM’s web store below.
SPIN reports, “Rage Against the Machine released a new live album of their just-pre-breakup DNC performance, Live at the Democratic National Convention 2000, for Record Store Day in April. They also sent Nigel Farage a cease and desist letter after the right-wing British pundit and politician interpolated their band name as the title of his podcast. RATM/Audioslave/Prophets of Rage guitarist Tom Morello is prepping a solo album for release this fall, entitled The Atlas Underground, due out on October 12.
He has currently released two songs from the project, including a collaboration with Vic Mensa. Killer Mike, Big Boi, RZA, GZA, Bassnectar, Portugal The Man, Gary Clark Jr., and Steve Aoki are also among the album’s guests. Prophets of Rage toured this year and released their most recent single, ‘Heart Afire,’ in April.”
