Prophets of Rage has been spreading their message of rage since early 2016, and have already started to cause a raucous in the US.
The band was supposed to play a concert in California’s Norco Prison. However, at the last minute, the show was cancelled. Some bands might pack it in, and call it a day, but not Prophets of Rage.
“We were denied at the last-minute because apparently they got some calls from right-wing nuts in Sacramento who said they were going to foment rebellion,” said guitarist Tom Morello, formally of Rage Against the Machine. “What we meant to do is come here to play a great show… The barbed wire cannot keep the music out.”
The best part about it is that no one attempted to stop them from playing. They got through the full set, playing from the top of a truck.
With former members of Rage Against the Machine, Cypress Hill’s B-Real, and Chuck D and DJ Lord from Public Enemy, the band has set out on their Make America Rage Again Tour.
The band will play the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on August 24th.
