Prophets Of Rage Bassist Wants Band To Release New EP Every Six Months


Rage Against The Machine/Prophets Of Rage guitarist Tom Morello and bassist Tim Commerford spoke with Full Metal Jackie about their current happenings and it was revealed that Commerford has ambitious plans when it comes to output from Prophets Of Rage. With their first EP, “The Party’s Over“, due out next Friday, August 26th, Commerford is already looking to the future. He hopes that the band will release a new EP every six months. They commented of that:

Tom Morello: “We have an EP coming out called ‘The Party’s Over‘. There are two new songs on it, one of them is called ‘Prophets of Rage‘ and the other is called ‘The Party’s Over‘ and then some roaring live tracks. We have some other new stuff cooking. We’re on tour with the ‘Make America Rage Again Tour‘ and I have no doubt we will continue to do more. Timmy has a plan for the band’s recording, which is ambitious.”

Tim Commerford: “It’s every six months a new EP with new songs. That’s what I’m gonna do. I’ll make sure that happens.”

Tom Morello: “The Clash did that, a single every month.”

Tim Commerford: “We can do it, it’s a nice ambition.”

Commerford later went on to state that he doesn’t feel Rage Against The Machine is done, stating:

“I don’t think we’re done. I never look at it as is being done. It’s sort of like a superhero thing. It’s like the bat light in the sky goes up. The Rage light goes up and we need to be there. The thing I think people, there has been bands that have come around that have tried to do what we have done, that we did with Rage and the thing I think they always leave out is that we are a punk band. We do not play by the rules. We do not do what people want us to do, never have and never will.”

For more on their formation and future plans, as well as Morello tunneling under an apartment complex to make extra rooms in his studio apartment pre-Rage, head to Loudwire. The band’s ‘Maker America Rage Again Tour‘ kicks off today, August 19th, with AWOLNATION and Wakrat (who are fronted by Commerford) opening. Those dates include:
