Caroline International

Rage Against The Machine can reunite for live shows, but when it comes to getting back together in the studio, it seems like frontman Zach De La Rocha is determined to leave Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk to their own devices.

To scratch that particular creative itch, Morello, Commerford and Wilk have teamed up with Public Enemy’s Chuck D and DJ Lord as well as Cypress Hill’s B-Real for a brand new project.

Their debut melds Morello’s classic bouncy riffs with the steely-eyed rhymes of B-Real and Chuck D, while keeping the fiery politics in the band’s message.
