The members of Rage minus vocalist Zach de la Rocha participated in supergroup Prophets Of Rage with Cypress Hill‘s B-Real and Chuck D of Public Enemy as well as DJ Lord over the past few years. Both B-Real and Chuck D took to social media shortly after news of Rage Against The Machine’s forthcoming reunion spread to announce the dissolution of Prophets Of Rage.
“I want to say thank you to the fans that supported Prophets Of Rage for the time we’ve been rocking together. It’s been an honor to rock stages and people of all ages with these guys,” wrote BReal on Instagram. “It’s been a great time and great memories in a short time. Rockin along side of Chuck and Tom has been amazing to say the least. It was fun while it lasted and I hope we left a big impression and that the music has been a source of inspiration for those that needed it. That was the purpose we got together. So I say to y’all stay informed, stay engaged and fight the good fight.”
“It was about doing something greater than self. 2020 keeping [Zach de la Rocha’s] spot warm for [Rage Against The Machine] and powering a 👊🏿statement for 1000 days was a honorable truth mission in the hours of chaos from the jump…,” explained Chuck D on Twitter. “And so the bands rock on….”https://www.instagram.com/p/B4VS1ZABkKj/
