Rage Without the Machine
Their self-titled, 5-track debut EP is set to be released mid July on Epitaph’s Anti- label, and the sound has allegedly been described as “a hybrid of Led Zeppelin and Dr Dre.”
The band, who described themselves as a “warning delivered and a promise kept,” take their name from a photograph taken in 1970 by George Rodriguez of some graffiti saying “It is better to live one day as a lion than a thousand years as a lamb.”
In other Rage Against The Machine related news, Tom Morello’s follow up to 2007’s ‘One Man Revolution’ is set to be titled ‘The Fabled City’ and due for release September 30 on Epic Records.
Tom Morello: The Nightwatchman will have eleven tracks and will feature Shooter Jennings, System of a Down’s Serj Tankian and will be produced by Brendan O’Brien (of Pearl Jam, RATM and Audioslave fame).
Morello describes the album saying “There is a much more rocking quality to this record, solos and riffs, mixed with darker acoustic songs.”
Will the parts be better than the whole? Will we get two great acts for the price of one?
Morello and Serj – thats gonna be intense! Zeppelin and Dre – thats gonna be interesting to say the least!
I can’t wait!
