Confirmed: Rage Against The Machine Are Reuniting
It’s official: Rage Against The Machine are back!
Following a ton of online speculation yesterday after an unverified Instagram account posted five new tour dates for the band in spring 2020, the page now has that all-important blue tick, meaning it’s legitimate. Holy shit.
After My Chemical Romance’s long-awaited comeback news the night before, now the legendary California political rockers are getting in on the reunion action, unveiling five tour dates across America. It looks as though there will be three headline gigs, and then two dates rounding off at Coachella next year.

Three-quarters of Rage Against The Machine (drummer Brad Wilk, guitarist Tom Morello and bassist Tim Commerford) have been busy with Prophets Of Rage alongside Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Cypress Hill’s B-Real, while frontman Zack de la Rocha last released solo material three years ago. Collectively Rage Against The Machine haven’t played since 2011, at Los Angeles’ Memorial Coliseum.
