Prophets of Rage’s New Single ‘Living on the 110′ Stands Up for the Homeless

Prophets of Rage have released the second single, “Living on the 110,” from their forthcoming self-titled album, which is due Sept. 15 from Fantasy Records. You can listen to it above.

In the song, the politically-minded band addresses the issue of homelessness. “The 110 is a freeway in Los Angeles and living beneath it are thousands of homeless people. Bentleys and Rolls Royces roaring by are literally driving on top of the poor and their makeshift homes, a picture perfect analogy for the grotesque economic inequality that plagues our times,” guitarist Tom Morello said.

In keeping with their theme of promoting awareness and change, the group debuted another new song from the Brendan O’Brien-produced LP called “Unf— the World,” at a show in Chile in May. A month later, they shared a video for the song, produced by Michael Moore.

The group, comprised all of Rage Against the Machine except Zack de la Rocha, as well as Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill, put out their first EP The Party’s Over in August.

Chuck D has been busy, with Public Enemy also releasing a new album Nothing Is Free in the Desert early, as a free download on Bandcamp two weeks ago.

Prophets of Rage have announced several upcoming tour dates, with more to be announced.
