Published Jul 09, 2008After reuniting for live dates and becoming one of the biggest bands in the world again, everyone is anxious to hear some new Rage Against the Machine. It appears fans will have to keep waiting for some fresh political funk metal, as the band have not yet commentated on the possibility of new studio material. Fortunately, Californian hardcore label Revelation Records will be reissuing Rages People of the Sun ten-inch vinyl EP on August 19.
Revelation Records played an interesting role in Rages formative years. Zach de la Rochas youth crew hardcore band Inside Out were set to release an album on activist Kent McLards Ebullition Records but decided to go with Revelations better ditribution instead. Soon after, Inside Out broke up and Rage Against the Machine (a term coined in one of McLards early political zines) were born.
While fans wait for new RATM material, there's always Tom Morellos the Nightwatchman and Zach De La Rochas recently announced One Day As a Lion project to tide over the hungry.
