Rage Against The Machine, which was formed in 1991, hasn’t played together since 2011. Frontman Zack de la Rocha released solo music back in 2016 and reportedly has been working on more. Also in 2016, former members Tom Morello, Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford got together with Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill to create Prophets Of Rage.
At the time, members from the band confirmed publicly that the band had been formed in response to the 2016 presidential election. (RELATED: My Chemical Romance Announces Reunion Show)
