Following the announcement of Rage Against the Machine’s reunion, Prophets of Rage have announced their disbanding.
The supergroup, formed in 2016 consisted of Rage Against the Machine’s Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk and Tom Morello, alongside DJ Lord and Cypress Hill’s B-Real and Public Enemy’s Chuck D.
Chuck D, in a tweet that announced the end of the band, wrote that he and B-Real were merely keeping the spot warm for Rage Against the Machine’s vocalist Zach De La Rocha.
It was about doing something greater than self. 2020 keeping ZDLR spot warm for @RATM & powering a ??statement for 1000 days was a honorable truth mission in the hours of chaos from the jump… And so the bands rock on…. Let’s go @cypresshill @PublicEnemyFTP @prophetsofrage pic.twitter.com/sFqvwTxfhv

B-Real also commented on the end of the band in an Instagram post, thanking the fans of the band and hoping that the music has been “a source of inspiration for those that needed it”.

I want to say thank you to the fans that supported @prophetsofrage for the time we've been rocking together. It's been an honor to rock stages and people of all ages with these guys. It's been a great time and great memories in a short time. Rockin along side of Chuck and Tom has been amazing to say the least. It was fun while it lasted and I hope we left a big impression and that the music has been a source of inspiration for those that needed it. That was the purpose we got together. So I say to y'all stay informed, stay engaged and fight the good fight. ✌?️??
