Prophets Of Rage Calls It Quits

(CelebrityAccess) — While Rage Against The Machine’s fans are likely excited by last week’s revelation that the iconic rap-metal group was reforming for Coachella and a brief (so far anyway) tour next year, there was also some bad news for fans of the associated group Prophets of Rage.

In a post to his Instagram, Prophets of Rage member and former Cypress Hill frontman B-Real announced that the group was parting ways.

“I want to say thank you to the fans that supported @prophetsofrage for the time we’ve been rocking together. It’s been an honor to rock stages and people of all ages with these guys. It’s been a great time and great memories in a short time. Rockin along side of Chuck and Tom has been amazing to say the least. It was fun while it lasted and I hope we left a big impression and that the music has been a source of inspiration for those that needed it. That was the purpose we got together. So I say to y’all stay informed, stay engaged and fight the good fight,” he wrote in the social media post.

Formed in 2016 as a ‘supergroup’ that included Rage Against The Machine’s bassist and backing vocalist Tim Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello, and drummer Brad Wilk; Public Enemy’s DJ Lord and Chuck D; and Cypress Hill’s B-Real.

“We’re an elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bullshit, and confront it head-on with Marshall stacks blazing,” Morello told Rolling Stone as the group debuted in 2016.

In its short life, the group released just one album – 2017’s Prophets of Rage, and one EP which included the top 10 mainstream rock hit “Prophets of Rage.”
