Prophets Of Rage Tease New Music In “The Ballot Or The Bullet” Video

With Election Day (November 6) coming up, Prophets Of Rage (Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy, Cypress Hill) have decided to share a new video called “The Ballot Or The Bullet.” The clip is named after Malcolm X’s famous 1964 speech and it features teasers of various songs from the group’s upcoming album. The band commented:

“There are people trying to keep many of us from being able to vote. Don’t squander the rights we’ve fought so hard to get. Agitate, Organize, resist and rebel before, during and after Election Day. In the words of Malcolm X, ‘It’s got to be the ballot or the bullet.'”

I’ve been a Type 1 diabetic for almost 20 years now. Not gonna lie it’s a real shitty but manageable disease. It’s very different than Type 2 diabetes in that it has more to do with genetics and or environment. But fact is if you want good control (or to cure your type 2!), it all starts with Diet and exercise. Anyone living with this disease, know that you don’t have to let it control your life. You need to control the disease. I’ve been living my life and traveling around the world for 20 years with it. Don’t let this disease stop you from doing the things you wanna do. Unless you want to enter a pie eating contest. I’d say skip that 💩!!! 🤪✌️ Shout out to @jordanfperform for keepin me in line! #fuckyoutodiabetes #fucksugar

“As far as I’m concerned, [the debut album] was a great imprint of us as a band. We made a record, and it was an imprint in time, and we did that. And we’re on to another record now; we’ve already finished a 13-song record that we are just in the process of just putting together at this moment in time. So there’s a lot going on. We have a new song that comes out on July 7th. And it’s on to new territory, new sounds and new music.”
