Rage Against The Machine reform!
Legendary rap metal pioneers to reunite for massive festival
RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE have reportedly reunited for at least one show, playing at this yearÂ’s Coachella festival in California. According to a report in Billboard magazine, frontman Zack de La Rocha has remained on good terms with other band members and that the reunion show may in fact be only the first show in what could be a world tour. According to recent interviews, all the members of the band have been in regular contact with their former singer and have met socially, most notably in 2005 when de La Rocha and guitarist Tom Morello were photographed together at a protest in support of the South Central Farmers, whow were being forcibly evicted from their land.
While Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk from the band have been active as members of Audioslave, de la Rocha has remained out of the public eye Â– bar a few low-key appearances Â– since the band split in 2000.
The solo album that he was reportedly working on has never been released and his collaboration with Trent Reznor was, according to the NIN man, not good enough to be released. He has recently been performing at political benefit shows with a Mexican band playing acoustic music.
The band have turned down all offers to reform and tour over the past few years.
