DTE Energy Music Theatre, Clarkston, Mich.

The band, which formed during the wild 2016 election cycle, is made up of Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk; Public Enemy’s Chuck D and DJ Lord; and Cypress Hill’s B-Real.

Prophets Of Rage’s self-titled debut is due out Sept. 15. The 12-track project was produced by longtime Rage collaborator Brendan O’Brien.

The album is described as fusing “the diverse styles, sonic firepower and hard-hitting social consciousness” of the musicians’ previous work “into an inventive and compelling new musical statement.” Pre-orders are ongoing.

The album release tour kicks off Sept. 7 at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club. The other shows are scheduled at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, N.J.; Theatre Of Living Arts in Philadelphia; and the Apollo Theater in New York.  

Previously announced festival appearances include Riot Fest & Carnival in Chicago; Houston Open Air in The Woodlands, Texas; and Ozzfest in San Bernardino, Calif.
