Ready to rage? The Prophets of Rage kicks off summer with a 35-date tour starting July 19th in Cleveland, Ohio, the very same day the Republican National Convention rolls into town.
The new supergroup features Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk; alongside Chuck D from Public Enemy; and Cypress Hill’s B-Real.
The band announced the tour the day after performing at a surprise show at Brooklyn’s Warsaw Ballroom on June 4th.
Primed for controversy, the band’s tour is set to collide with the Republican National Convention in Ohio and will come to a close two weeks before this year’s presidential election.
The band said: “Dangerous times demand dangerous songs,” describing The Prophets of Rage as an “elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bulls***.”
Having recently played sold-out shows at the Whisky and the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, The Prophets of Rage will make stops in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville, and Atlanta before wrapping up the tour in San Diego.
As a side note, a portion of the proceeds from all show will benefit local homeless charities.
Tickets for the tour go on sale at LiveNation.com on Friday, June 10th.
