Prophets of Rage Take Closer Look at Social Movements With New Song ‘Radical Eyes’
Prophets of Rage continue to keep their fingers on the pulse of society, unleashing the powerful new song "Radical Eyes" off their forthcoming full-length self-titled debut disc.
The song, heard in the player above, features that killer low end from Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk, with Tom Morello's guitar wailing and creating a distinctive sound. It's a churning rhythmic beat perfect for Chuck D. to rap over. Even though there are two voices in Prophets of Rage, Chuck D. takes the lead for most of the song, but trades off with B-Real on the chorus, "They say we're radicalized / See my radical eyes."
"The Western world has created biased structures and stereotypes. Opposing viewpoints and movements are seen as radical rather than diversity," says Chuck D. in a statement about the song. "'Radical Eyes' is the lens everything is viewed through, any life movement in opposition is considered radicalized."
If you like what you hear, Prophets of Rage have made the song available via a variety of platforms. Check here to pick up the song.
The track comes on the heels of the band's current single, "Living on the 110," which has made a steady rise up the rock charts. Both songs are featured on the band's self-titled disc, which is due Sept. 15 and you can look for the band on tour at these stops.
