Despite not playing since 2011, Rage’s guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk have been active in the supergroup Prophets of Rage alongside members of Cypress Hill and rapper Chuck D.

The confirmation of their comeback last year is a marked contrast to comments Morello made earlier in 2019 when he urged fans not to “wait around” for their return.
