Speaking on ‘Irreversible Damage’, the band’s new single, Algiers frontman Franklin James Fisher said: “The end of that song is the sound of joy.

‘SHOOK’ is set to be the Atlanta band’s first album since 2020. In a four-star review of ‘There Is No Year’, NME wrote: “There are so many diverse sounds on ‘There is No Year’. It helps that the band are influenced by so many different genres that they can easily float between them without changing their sound.

“This balance means the band’s lyrical message are delivered with more clarity. The band continue to be radical, but rather than being reactionary, ‘There is No Year’ is precise, thoughtful and powerful.”

Earlier this month (October 2), meanwhile, Rage Against The Machine were forced to cancel their forthcoming North America tour dates in 2023 due to de la Rocha’s ongoing leg injury.
