Recent Rage Against The Machine Tour Poster Is Reportedly Fake

Earlier today (November 24), Rage Against The Machine made headlines after an admat for their 2020 world tour allegedly leaked online. However, an Internet troll has now issued a statement to Australia’s Wall Of Sound, claiming that the poster was a fake:

“So, the insta was shopped, the poster isn’t anything amazing but the Insta really sells it. I just changed the post count and time stamp of it haha As far as why [I did it], I mean, I love a good troll hey. Plus how sick would it be if Rage did get their ass down here, and Splendour doesn’t seem too far out of the realm of possibility. Especially as it’s their 20th year.”

During a recent interview with HardDrive Radio’s Lou Brutus, Tom Morello was asked about the status of Rage Against The Machine. The guitarist responded with the following:

“There’s no news on the RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE front. The times demand people standing up. That’s what I’m doing with my stuff, what PROPHETS OF RAGE is doing. Don’t wait around for RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE. Form your own band and get it done.”

Brad Wilk (Rage Against The Machine, Prophets Of Rage) Discusses Living With Type 1 Diabetes

Brad Wilk (Rage Against The Machine, Prophets Of Rage) recently shared an Instagram post in which he discusses living with Type 1 Diabetes. You can check out that post below. Wilk was diagnosed with the disease in 1997.

View this post on Instagram

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
