PROPHETS OF RAGE have released a new video titled "The Ballot or the Bullet" encouraging listeners to vote in the upcoming US midterm elections.

As this historic and volatile election approaches, Prophets Of Rage want to remind people of the importance of exercising their right to vote. The revolutionary musicians Prophets Of Rage: Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Chuck D, B-Real and DJ Lord have released a mashup of three new unreleased tracks and their latest release, Heart Afire into a brand new video. Named after the famous Malcolm X speech The Ballot or the Bullet, the video is aimed squarely at turning out voters to next week’s midterm elections.
 
As the group states in the music video, “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 & rebel before, during & after Election Day. In the words of Malcolm X, “it’s got to be the ballot or the bullet.” Additionally, it provides reminders and resources linking people to check ID requirements in their state, since new laws and policies threaten to disenfranchise large numbers of Native American and Black voters in North Dakota and Georgia, but activists are resolute in the battle for the ballot.
 
Prophets Of Rage, who remain hard at work on their next album, are nonetheless focused on the matter at hand, and with this powerful new video, are strongly encouraging their fans to be heard, to be counted, to vote.
