Tim Commerford and his bandmates in Prophets of Rage have released a new song from the oppressive chains of secrecy.
The new audio track “Radical Eyes” will appear on the rap-rock supergroup’s upcoming self-titled debut album, which is due out this fall. It features a powerful pounding bassline from Commerford that’s reminiscent of the one he used in Rage Against the Machine’s iconic 1996 song “Bulls on Parade.” The vocals on “Radical Eyes” are shared by the group’s frontmen Chuck D (Public Enemy) and B-Real (Cypress Hill).
Playing around with the lyrical similarities between “radical eyes” and “radicalize,” the song explores what it means to see in a different way.
“The Western world has created biased structures and stereotypes,” Chuck D said in a statement. “Opposing viewpoints and movements are seen as radical rather than diversity. ‘Radical Eyes’ is the lens everything is viewed through, any life movement in opposition is considered radicalized.”
“Radical Eyes” follows on the heels of “Unfuck The World” and “Living on the 101,” which will also be appearing on Prophets of Rage. The group’s debut album comes out Sept. 15.
Prophets of Rage currently have plans to tour this fall, beginning with a Sept. 7 concert in Boston, Massachusetts.
