    After multiple postponements due to the pandemic, Rage Against the Machine’s long-awaited reunion tour is just one month away. To pump up fans for the impending live shows, the band shared a clip of a brand-new rehearsal recording on Instagram, and it sounds like they haven’t lost a beat.

    If waiting more than a decade to see RATM live wasn’t enough cause for excitement, the audio clip of the legendary band’s June 7th rehearsal should easily do the trick. It features Zack de la Rocha and company delivering a rousing rendition of “War Within a Breath” from The Battle of Los Angeles.

    While it’s only a 30-second tease (listen below), it finds guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk sounding as tight as ever, while de la Rocha brings the fire on vocals. The audio is paired with a collage of still images of the band members from the rehearsal.

    The 2022 leg of the North American tour kicks off July 9th in East Troy, Wisconsin, and runs through a five-night stand at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, culminating with an August 14th show at the “World’s Most Famous Arena.” A 2023 leg launches on February 22nd in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and wraps up April 2nd in Detroit. Tickets for both legs are currently available via Ticketmaster.

    The reunion outing, which was originally set to kick off in 2020, will mark RATM’s first shows since their July 2011 performance in Los Angeles. The band was recently a nominee for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year, but ultimately weren’t voted in as one of the inductees.

    In the years since their last show, de la Rocha has been relatively reclusive, while Morello has been quite prolific, releasing a number of albums and EPs under his own name and as The Nightwatchman. Wilk, meanwhile, famously performed drums on Black Sabbath’s final album, 2013’s 13.

    Morello, Wilk, and Commerford also teamed up with members of Cypress Hill and Public Enemy to form Prophets of Rage, performing songs from all three acts, as well as some originals.
