    September 15th marks the release of the debut album from alt-rock supergroup Prophets of Rage. The self-titled LP follows their 2016 EP, The Party’s Over, and today fans can get an early taste with a new track called “Radical Eyes”.

    In the same vein as previous offerings “Unfuck the World” and “Living on the 110”, this latest single offers a potent punch of social commentary. In particular, Prophets of Rage — comprised of members of Rage Against the MachinePublic Enemy, and Cypress Hill — reflect on the idea of radicalism and the way in which the word is too often used incorrectly in order to propagate an agenda.

    “The Western world has created biased structures and stereotypes,” the band’s Chuck D. explained in a press statement. “Opposing viewpoints and movements are seen as radical rather than diversity. ‘Radical Eyes’ is the lens everything is viewed through, any life movement in opposition is considered radicalized.” Hear it down below.
