On October 18, 2000, Zack de la Rocha announced that he was leaving Rage Against the Machine. Since then, the former RATM frontman has released a couple of singles, a couple of collabos, and teamed up with former Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore to form the One Day as a Lion, which wasn’t extremely successful.
Zack is back!
On Thursday, the Rage frontman released a new single titled “Digging for Windows” featuring rapper El-P and it is ELECTRIC!
The new track comes at a perfect time with Zack taking aim at the upcoming presidential election.
“I stare at a future so toxic, no trust in the dust of a promise, won’t mark the name on a ballot, so they can be free to devour our options, and just like you I’m a target.”
More intense and tremendous news: there will indeed be a Zack de la Rocha solo album coming very soon!
This new single comes on the heels of the forming of The Prophets of Rage supergroup featuring Public Enemy’s Chuck D; B-Real of Cypress Hill; and guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford, and drummer Brad Wilk from Rage Against the Machine.
This is the best track Zack has done since his days with RATM, even better than the 2014 collaboration “Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck).”
