While they may have been keeping fairly quiet recently, rap metal outfit Rage Against The Machine will be holding a huge show at the L.A. Coliseum on July 30th featuring other big bands like Muse and Rise Against. The group has also made it clear that they have not ruled out new material and tours in the future.
In a recent interview, Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello spoke to Spinner about the upcoming July show and some of the significance it holds for the band:
"This is a Rage Against The Machine show - we chose the bands and the venue, we're choosing the activists and the charity causes that will be in the Rage reeducation camp that will be part of the venue."
"The 20th anniversary of the first time the four of us were in a room together is this August and we thought 'What better way to mark it than by, from the very humble beginnings of playing in a little rehearsal studio in the San Fernando Valley, to playing the biggest venue in town?'"
When asked about the group's future plans and if he considered the band to be active, Morello replied:
"We're certainly an active band... We'll let you know, if and when there's new music. You will hear it. If and when there's a tour, those things will not be kept secret. Beyond that, it's all just speculation. Sometimes the guys in the band don't know from one day to the next. The one thing I know for sure is on July 30 we're gonna be rocking the Coliseum senseless."
