Prophets Of Rage Tease Three New Songs With The Ballot Or The Bullet Video

Friday, 02 November 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Prophets of Rage have released a video called The Ballot or the Bullet.

Named after Malcolm X's famous 1964 speech about voter rights, the clip features the speech, NRA protests and photos from the civil rights movement tracked by a mashup of three unreleased tracks and the band's recent single, Heart Afire. The group released the video with a statement:

"There are people trying to keep many of us from being able to vote. Don't squander the rights we've fought so hard to get. Agitate, organize, resist and rebel before, during and after Election Day. In the words of Malcolm X, 'It's got to be the ballot or the bullet.'"

The band, which features members of Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill, released their self-titled debut album last year. In July, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk revealed in an interview with Finland's Kaaos TV that the band had already finished its second album.

That was the way of things in the bloody, ugly, triumphant tales that defined the early years of the Hold Steady.
