Band Featuring RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE's Tim Commerford

- advertisement -
Tim Commerford is kicking up a storm in both the musical and political worlds with his new politically-charged punk rock trio WAKRAT (pronounced wkrat).

Surrounding the band's damning political statements is a devastating new sound which features the notorious RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE bassist on both vocals and bass over a tight mix of punchy, rhythmic and dynamic punk rock.

Watch the new video, "Smashing The Grid" - an introduction to the band which takes you inside their world as they talk about their formation, the creation of their self-titled debut album, their use of different effects and sounds, and much more - below.

WAKRAT guitarist Laurent Grangeon comments: "We need to do something completely opposite of that boxed-in, overproduced, gutless type of music that's hammered every day."

Along with drummer Mathias Wakrat, the group recently led a protest through the streets of London, declaring a brand new micronation in what was formerly known as Parliament Square in an audacious effort to expose the failings of the current political system.

The 'Republic of Wakrat' proudly "welcomes everyone of all ethnicities, backgrounds, genders, generations, sexualities, dis/abilities and faiths, and offers a fresh alternative to the current system." Arriving to a legion of fans, media and bewildered tourists in an iconic red London bus decorated with the words #GenerationFucked - taken from the band's new single - the protest created headlines across the UK and beyond, striking a chord in the current climate of political unrest. Everyone is invited to join the Republic of Wakrat at http://www.republicofwakrat.com

WAKRAT's self-titled debut album is due to be released on November 11th on physical formats and November 8th on digital formats to coincide with the US election.

Pre-order the album now on ultra-limited, hand-stencilled and signed vinyl, signed CD and coloured vinyl, regular CD and vinyl, and t-shirt bundles at http://www.earache.com/wakrat

The album is also available to pre-order now on iTunes, including an instant download of the track "Generation Fucked", at http://bit.ly/wakrat-itunes
