Prophets Of Rage: Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Chuck D, B-Real and DJ Lord have shared the piercing brand new track and video “Pop Goes The Weapon”. With the band’s masterful musicianship driving a menacing lyric and snarling vocal from B-Real, it puts a sharp focus on the dire consequences of America’s never-ending gun violence epidemic.
Actual carnage is powerfully depicted in the track’s gripping video. A comprehensive list of 2019’s mass shootings (so far), including the date, location and number of those killed and injured. The video ends as the names of those lost recently in Gilroy, CA, El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH scroll silently by. The three mass shootings all happened within less than 10 days of each other.
Prophets Of Rage just wrapped a triumphant European tour that saw them perform for more than one million people in just the first few shows alone.
I'm a photojournalist who is passionate about music. I love the adrenaline of shooting live concerts. Photography has given me the opportunity to photograph some of today's most legendary bands, and entertainers. When I'm not photographing music you can find me on the runway shooting New York and Philadelphia Fashion Week.
