Rage Against the Machine Announces 2020 Reunion — Coachella Included

Coachella 2020 news is coming much sooner than expected this year. Specifically, it’s coming via Rage Again the Machine starting up an Instagram account to announce that they’re reuniting for at least a short tour next year, their first live appearances since 2011 …  with Indio on April 10 and 17 capping the quick run of shows.

The other three dates listed in the post are El Paso on March 26, Las Cruces on March 28 and Phoenix on the 30th.

During their long hiatus, three members — Tom Morello, Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford —joined forces with Public Enemy’s Chuck D and B-Real of Cypress Hill as Prophets Of Rage.

Given the band’s highly political nature, speculation is rampant, of course, that the 2020 timing is far from coincidental and that the band intends to make the most of rousing its fan base to take its name to heart.

Their use of social media to quietly but loudly announce new gigs follows right on the heels a similarly press-release-free tack taken the day before by My Chemical Romance. That band’s Instagram reveal of a Shrine Auditorium concert in December marked the end of a lesser break, a mere six years in MCR’s case.
