Rock Hall Of Famers Rage Against The Machine Call It Quits Once Again

It’s goodbye once again for Rage Against The Machine. In a note to fans, drummer Brad Wilk said that the “Public Service Announcement” reunion tour won’t resume, and the group is not carrying on in any form.

This marks the third farewell for the group. They also split in 2000 and 2011.

“I know a lot of people are waiting for us to announce new dates for all the cancelled RATM shows,” Wilk wrote on Instagram. “I don’t want to string people or myself along any further. So while there has been some communication that this may be happening in the future…I want to let you know that RATM (Tim, Zack, Tom and I) will not be touring or playing live again. I’m sorry for those of you who have been waiting for this to happen. I really wish it was…”

Rage’s most recent reunion was in 2022, following an 11-year hiatus. The tour was interrupted when frontman Zack de la Rocha ruptured his Achilles tendon during the second stop of the tour at Chicago’s United Center. He finished out the first leg of the tour sitting on a road case, and the rest of the dates were canceled.

de la Rocha skipped the band’s induction in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Morello was the only member of the group to show up.

“Like most bands, we have differing perspectives on a lot of things, including being inducted into the Rock Hall,” he said during his acceptance speech. “My perspective is that tonight is a great opportunity to celebrate the music and the mission of the band — to celebrate the fifth member of the band, which is Rage Against the Machine’s incredible fans. The only reason we are here and the best way to celebrate this music is for you to carry on that mission and that message.”
