PROPHETS OF RAGE have released a music video for their new song "Pop Goes The Weapon". The supergroup features members of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, PUBLIC ENEMY and CYPRESS HILL."Pop Goes The Weapon" is the first new music from PROPHETS OF RAGE since the release of "Made With Hate", which was made available in June.PROPHETS OF RAGE guitarist Tom Morello recently told BBC Radio 6 Music about the band's plans to release new music: "We talk among ourselves: 'What does an album mean?' There used to be one way to do it — you would write an album, you'd record an album, you'd do six months of promotion and then the record would [do] X, Y and Z. In this day and age, the process has become democratized in a way. The healthy side of that, I think, is that there's more music available all the time, and there are no barriers. Music is cheaper than water now, so there's no barriers to accessing the music. However, it's such a white noise background of so much all the time that finding the crystal and gems within it is a more difficult process than perhaps it once was."According to Morello, fans won't have to wait very long to hear more new music from PROPHETS OF RAGE."When the band came together in 2016, it was a reaction to the chaotic U.S. election cycle," he explained. "And we had to do more than tweet about it. And we had a lot of great arrows in our quiver when it comes to songs, and so by putting this group together, it was a way to move the goal post and address the issues of the time to between two thousand and sixty thousand people a day. And now it's time to really get that musical message on tape."In addition to Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk, who all played together in RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and AUDIOSLAVE, the band features PUBLIC ENEMY's Chuck D and DJ Lord along with CYPRESS HILL's B-Real.PROPHETS OF RAGE's self-titled album came out in 2017 and debuted at No. 3 and No. 4 on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums chart and Top Rock Albums chart, respectively.
