“Radical Eyes”, a new song from Prophets of Rage, the supergroup featuring members of Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy, and Cypress Hill, can be streamed below. The track is taken from Prophets of Rage’s self-titled debut album, which will be released on September 15 via Fantasy Records. The disc was recorded with legendary producer Brendan O’Brien who has done notable work with Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave.

“The Western world has created biased structures and stereotypes. Opposing viewpoints and movements are seen as radical rather than diversity,” says Chuck D. about the song. “‘Radical Eyes’ is the lens everything is viewed through, any life movement in opposition is considered radicalized.

“The music is the passport to the world,” Chuck D. says, describing the unique bond the group shares. “It’s not always a given to have members who want to go where few have gone.”
