Prophets Of Rage, the supergroup made up of Chuck D, B-Real and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine are plotting a musical revolution this summer and they are starting at the Republican National Convention.

Can you imagine the terror that a group consisting of members of Public Enemy, Rage Against the Machine, Cypress Hill are capable of creating? Well, you’re about to get a chance to see it in real life.

The supergroup just formed and they are already making music and plans to hit the road.

Per release:

Best described by Morello as an, “elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bullsh*t,” the group combines the sonic firepower of Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill.  The band has said that “dangerous times demand dangerous songs” and has fans using #MakeAmericaRAGEAgain and #TakeThePowerBack to engage across social media.  In what the LA Times headlined simply as “REVOLUTIONARY,” the band’s mission is clear, promising “No Sleep till Cleveland,” the home of the 2016 Republican National Convention this July, where they have a planned performance on July 19th.

Following two sold-out shows at The Whisky and The Hollywood Palladium that had thousands of hopeful fans lined up in Los Angeles this week, and a sold-out show in Brooklyn at Warsaw Ballroom, the group has announced a national 35+ city North American tour, bringing their raging messages to the masses. The “Make America Rage Again” tour, will kick off in Cleveland, OH on July 19, in tandem with the Republican National Convention. From there the tour will include stops in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville and Atlanta before concluding in San Diego, mere weeks before 2016 Election Day. A portion of the proceeds from each show will benefit a local homeless charity.

Check out the tour dates to seen when Prophets of Rage comes to a city near you.
