whoa just heard Rage Against The Machine are reuniting for a once off performance for Coachella!! :stunned: ....






Rage Against the Machine, the seminal L.A. band that made heavy music into political manifesto, will reunite after a seven-year lull for one show as the headliners at the 2007 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.


Sources say Rage, which played the main stage at the first Coachella in 1999, will be joined by other familiar faces for the eighth edition of the festival, which covers three days this year and begins April 27: Red Hot Chili Peppers, which headlined in 2003, are back, as is Björk, who topped the bill in 2002.


Organizers were mum this weekend and it was not clear which day Rage or the other acts were slotted to play; that announcement is expected in the next few days. Other acts expected in the eclectic lineup: Arcade Fire, Interpol, Willie Nelson, the Roots, Manu Chao, the Decemberists, Arctic Monkeys, Sonic Youth, Crowded House, Air, Tiësto and Kings of Leon.


Tickets go on sale Saturday, via Ticketmaster. Three-day passes will cost about $250 and there will be a limited number of single-day passes available.


The headliners are not novel, but they are potent. The Peppers are up for their first best album Grammy right now, and Björk remains a mesmerizing figure to fans of avant pop. But in Southern California rock circles, there is very little that could compete with the excitement of a Rage Against the Machine reunion. The quartet's hybrid of funk, rap, metal and leftist ideology was as subtle as a Molotov cocktail; in the 1990s, its aggro-anthems made it the only band that mattered to a fan base that included East L.A. protest kids as well as those in Hollywood punk circles, college dorms and mainstream rock festival mosh pits, where politics were secondary to the group's feral energy.


The band is vocalist Zack de la Rocha, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk. Their split came amid rumors of bad blood between De la Rocha and his mates, who went on to work with Chris Cornell in Audioslave. However, Morello and De la Rocha appeared together at a 2005 rally for the urban farmers of a South Los Angeles community garden.

Rage Against the Machine's reunion at this year's Coachella festival won't be a one-off after all. The rockers have made plans to join Wu-Tang Clan for three dates on this summer's Rock the Bells (tickets | music) hip-hop fest.

Rock the Bells is set to take place this July in New York City, and two California dates are set for August. Details are listed below.


"It's definitely our fans' dream billing," Chang Weisberg of Rock the Bells organizer Guerilla Union said in a statement. "It's a tremendous honor to have Rage Against The Machine (tickets | music) and Wu-Tang Clan perform together. I can't wait to announce the rest of the line-up for Rock the Bells. It's incredibly important to put some shine on quality hip-hop. The opportunity to galvanize the social and political consciousness of these groups is undeniable."


The festival's complete lineup is scheduled to be announced March 26; tickets go on sale March 31. Updates can be found at Guerilla Union's website or the Rock the Bells site.


Last month, Rage Against the Machine signed on to headline the closing night of Coachella in Indio, CA, April 29. The reunion helped the festival to sell out 80 days in advance, according to the Los Angeles Times. Sources told the paper that the quick sellout and the ticket scalping that followed were among the factors in the band's decision to add more shows, but the four gigs that have been announced are expected to be the only shows for RATM in 2007.


That's despite the fact that Rage members Tom Morello (guitar), Tim Commerford (bass) and Brad Wilk (drums) are free from their post-RATM project, Audioslave, since frontman Chris Cornell left the band earlier this month "due to irresolvable personality conflicts as well as musical differences."


The Audioslave breakup rumors started flying when Coachella announced that Morello, Commerford and Wilk would reunite with Rage frontman Zack de la Rocha for the first time since 2000.


In addition to regrouping with Rage Against the Machine, Morello is working on a solo project dubbed The Nightwatchman. He'll release his debut album, "One Man Revolution," on Epic Records April 24
