TIM COMMERFORD OF RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE SLAMS POLITICAL ELITE IN NEW WAKRAT LYRIC VIDEO‏

Commerford’s new politically charged Punk Rock trio Wakrat (pronounced wôk•rat) have unveiled a new lyric video for the track ‘Generation Fucked” taken from their forthcoming debut album on Earache Records.

The hard-hitting and controversial video depicts the sorry state of humanity in the 21st century and the bleak future of this generation with imagery of 9/11, the UK exiting the European union and dangerous political elites.

Wakrat have also announced details of their much anticipated debut album which is due for release on November 8th 2016 to coincide with the US General Election.

Notorious for his infamous bass lines in Rage Against The Machine, Commerford fronts Wakrat on vocals and bass over a tight mix of punchy, rhythmic and dynamic punk rock, fuelled by political dissent, social commentary and an undiminished subversion and questioning of authority.

Wakrat will make their UK live debut on Tuesday July 26 in a one-night-only appearance at The Black Heart in Camden with all proceeds from the gig going towards the homeless charity Shelter.  Tickets are priced at £10 and are available from https://dice.fm/event/wakrat-26th-jul-the-black-heart-london-tickets.  The evening will also feature DJ sets from Scuzz TV presenter Jon Mahon.

Wakrat will be opening the 27 date #MakeAmericaRageAgain tour with Tim’s other band, Prophets Of Rage later this summer meaning that Commerford will be pulling double duty. Prophets of Rage have also promised to gatecrash The Republican Party Convention on July 19 to protest about Presidential nominee Donald Trump.
