Rage Against The Machine Guitarist Says New Album Is “Not On The Table Right Now”

The future continues to look grim for a new Rage Against The Machine album. Band guitarist Tom Morello recently told

“When bands make albums it’s because everybody wants to, and that’s not the case with Rage Against The Machine at the moment. Everyone in the band gets along very well, we consider each other friends and comrades in arms, but people sometimes don’t feel ready to do it. I don’t have one minute of one day that’s not filled with music, or politics, or family. If at some point Rage were to get it together to work more I would be open to that, but that’s not on the table right now.”

This coming Tuesday, November 27th, will see the groups expanded “XX” 20th anniversary reissue of their self-titled debut album. In the meantime, you can watch live footage from the set of the band playing “Bombtrack” back in 1992 over at



    I kinda feel like this re-release of the debut is their way of testing the waters to see if it would be in their best interest to record again. I honestly wouldn’t be too shocked if two years from now I was holding a new RATM album (kinda how Telephantasm led into King Animal). Call me an optimist, but I just believe it’s a matter of time.

    On a side note, how’s about some more One Day As A Lion? That was some good shit.

      At least it’s not a straight up no. I could see it eventually happening, though it could be wishful thinking.

    I feel I should probably give it another spin, but I was not impressed in the least with Battle of LA.
