Rage Against the Machine have confirmed they have no plans to record a new album. Check out what they had to say below.
“One at a time, man!” he says with a laugh. “The good news is that we’ve got time to think about it. I think the next one (‘Evil Empire’) came out in ‘96, so there’s four years to decide on that.” But, he adds, there’s a scarcity of possible bonus content. “There have been a lot of shows recorded professionally, but there are not unreleased songs,” he notes.
“It doesn’t feel like 20 years, but at the same time it’s sobering that it is,” added Morello. “There’s no crystal ball that we could’ve looked into when we were writing these songs in 1991 that would have told us we’d be talking about this record over two decades later. And I will say that 20 years later we’re able to take pride in the fact that in the history of rock music there has never been a more popular band with as radical politics as Rage Against The Machine, nor has there been a band with more radical politics than Rage Against The Machine that has been as popular. That is the lasting testament to the first shot fired by this album and how it continues to resonate with rebels around the world.”
