RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE Frontman ZACK DE LA ROCHA Releases Solo Track 'Digging For Windows'

September 8, 2016

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE frontman Zack De La Rocha has released his debut solo single, "Digging For Windows", featuring rapper El-P.

The lyrics to the new track appear to be De La Rocha's commentary on the forthcoming elections.

"I stare at a future so toxic, no trust in the dust of a promise, won't mark the name on a ballot, so they can be free to devour our options, and just like you I'm a target," he raps in the song.

The instrumental members of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE recently joined forces with PUBLIC ENEMY's Chuck D and CYPRESS HILL's B-Real to form a new supergroup called PROPHETS OF RAGE.

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE has not played live since headlining its own L.A. Rising festival show in Los Angeles in the summer of 2011.

The band recorded three original studio albums and one set of covers before breaking up in 2000. The group reformed in 2007 but only played sporadic gigs and never a full tour. Guitarist Tom Morello said in 2012, "We'd have to agree to go on one. Once a year, the band meets and very seriously discusses and turns down awesome offers to tour the world."

Drummer Brad Wilk played on BLACK SABBATH's 2013 reunion album, "13", and joined a new rock outfit called THE LAST INTERNATIONALE.

Zack de la Rocha and bassist Tim Commerford have been less visible, although de la Rocha showed up at the recording sessions for rap duo RUN THE JEWELS' second album.
