After playing a special preview show in New York City over the weekend, Rage Against the Machine is continuing to prepare for the November 2 release of its new album, “The Battle Of Los Angeles.”
This week, Rage will be in Los Angeles shooting the video for its new single, “Guerilla Radio,” with the husband-wife directing team of Laura Kelly and Nicholas Brooks, who are also known as “Honey.” Brooks shared an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects earlier this year for the Robin Williams-Cuba Gooding, Jr. film, “What Dreams May Come.”
Current plans call for the clip to touch upon several political issues, including the exploitation of garment workers. The “Guerilla Radio” video will also feature scenes in which the group performs on a white stage, a takeoff of the popular “Gap” ads currently permeating the airwaves.
After cutting the video, Rage Against the Machine will return to its promotional blitzkrieg for “The Battle Of Los Angeles,” which includes concert dates
in Mexico City on October 27, Washington D.C. on October 31, and Los Angeles on November 5.
Rage will also return to New York City for several TV appearances, and the group is slated to perform live on “TRL” on November 3 (see “Rage Against The Machine Adds ’Conan,’ ’TRL’ To Busy Schedule” ).
