Rage Against The Machine. Reunited.
According to MTV, Rage Against The Machine, legendary political rap-rock hardcore band that was disbanded prematurely is schedule to perform at Coachella Festival this April 29. The festival is schedule to run for 3 days, starting on April 27 to 29. Famous for their political and fiery lyrics, the band and their vocalist Zack De la Rocha, headed their different ways after some conflict of interest between then in 2000. While Zack went missing, the rest of the band formed Audioslave with Chris Cornell of Soundgarden on vocal.
Guitarist Tom Morello said, the main reason for the reunion is to "deliver a knockout blow to the Bush administration. And hopefully, one night in the desert is all it will take." Will this be a one off thing or can we expect a new full length album after this?
They should be invited to the next PGPO conference. That would be awesome!
