Rage Against The Machine Lining Up Club Dates Before New Album Drops

Rage Against The Machine plans to gear up for the release of its new album (and the world tour that is sure to follow) with a trio of club dates.

The band has already lined up an October 2 show at New York's Roseland Ballroom (which holds a mere 3,500), and plans to map out two more such shows at other clubs before the November 2 release of its still-untitled new album.

Tickets for the New York show go on sale Friday, September 24, at 4 p.m.

Rage is expected to use the dates to break in its new material, but is also expected to roll out better known tracks from its first two albums.

The band will then play to a much larger crowd as part of next month's two-day Coachella Music And Arts Festival, which also boasts sets from Tool, Beck, the Chemical Brothers, Morissey, Pavement, Perry Farrell, Ben Harper, Bis, Cibo Matto, and others. The event, set for Indio, California on October 9 and 10, will see Rage co-headline the second night with Tool.
