Jeff Tuttle, bisher Gitarrist bei Dillinger Escape Plan, hat die Band verlassen. Das haben DEP und Jeff via Facebook bekannt gegeben. Jeff wird Filmproduktion studieren, ist aber auch weiter bei Old Gods und mit seinem Soloprojekt Malo Konjche als Musiker aktiv.
Der republikanische Vizekandidat in den US-Wahlen, Paul Ryan, zählt Rage Against the Machine zu seinen Lieblingsbands. Nicht verwunderlich, dass RATM-Frontmann Tom Morello etwas dazu zu sagen hat:
"Ryan claims that he likes Rage's sound, but not the lyrics. Well, I don't care for Paul Ryan's sound or his lyrics. He can like whatever bands he wants, but his guiding vision of shifting revenue more radically to the one percent is antithetical to the message of Rage.
I wonder what Ryan's favorite Rage song is? Is it the one where we condemn the genocide of Native Americans? The one lambasting American imperialism? Our cover of "Fuck the Police"? Or is it the one where we call on the people to seize the means of production? So many excellent choices to jam out to at Young Republican meetings!
Don't mistake me, I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta "rage" in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically the only thing he's not raging against is the privileged elite he's groveling in front of for campaign contributions."
