ABC/Randy Holmes Prophets of Rage have shared a new song called “Living on the 110,” which will appear on the rap-rock supergroup’s forthcoming self-titled debut album, due out September 15. The track is available for download now on digital outlets.
“‘Living On The 110’ is a song that speaks to the issue of homelessness,” says guitarist Tom Morello. “The 110 is a freeway in Los Angeles and living beneath it are thousands of homeless people.”
He adds, “Bentleys and Rolls Royces roaring by are literally driving on top of the poor and their makeshift homes, a picture perfect analogy for the grotesque economic inequality that plagues our times.”
Prophets of Rage, which formed last year, includes Morello and his Rage Against the Machine band mates Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk, plus rappers Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill.
Prophets of Rage will be hitting a number of U.S. festivals this fall, including Riot Fest, Louder than Life, Voodoo and Ozzfest Meets Knotfest.
