Bring it on.
Rage Against The Machine are reportedly set to reunite for a string of comeback shows in 2020.
The rock icons, who last performed in 2011, will join forces once more for a string of US gigs, including a headline set at Coachella Festival.
The shows were quietly announced on Instagram this morning, with the band’s longtime associate Wayne Kamemoto confirming their authenticity to Forbes.
According to the Instagram post, they will begin the comeback in El Paso on March 26, ahead of two further shows in Las Cruces and Phoenix on March 28 and March 30 respectively. Their Coachella headline set will then take place on the weekends of April 10 and April 17. The same image was also shared by guitarist Tom Morello on Instagram earlier this week.
Despite not playing since 2011, Rage’s guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk have been active in the supergroup Prophets of Rage – alongside members of Cypress Hill and rapper Chuck D.
The confirmation of their apparent comeback is a marked contrast to Morello’s comments earlier this year, when he urged fans not to “wait around” for their return.
“There’s no news on the Rage Against The Machine front,” he told HardDrive online. “The times demand people standing up. That’s what I’m doing with my stuff, what Prophets Of Rage is doing. Don’t wait around for Rage Against The Machine. Form your own band and get it done.”
This comes only a day after My Chemical Romance also announced their comeback, which will begin with a show in Los Angeles at the end of December.
