Rage Against The Machine drummer hopeful for reunion

Rage Against The Machine hasn't put out a new record since 2000 and has been defunct since 2011 (three of its members do currently play together in Prophets of Rage), but if a new interview with drummer Brad Wilk is any indication, a reunion certainly isn't out of the realm of possibility.

Speaking with Dean Delray on a recent episode of the Let There Be Talk podcast (listen below), Wilk said, "Nothing would make me happier than to be able to fuck shit up right now with Rage Against the Machine. It's just really a matter of getting us all on the same page."

Explaining the lack of a reunion thus far, Wilk had this to say: "It's always been something different. It's always been somebody different. It's always something. For us, it's kind of like the magnet theory. One magnet is always being pushed out. You've just got to get all of the magnets to stick together for a minute, and that's always been our problem. I feel like a politician right now because I'm kind of skipping specifics, but that's just kind of the best way I can answer it."

Wilk was careful not to single out vocalist Zack de la Rocha for the apparent impasse, stating only that de la Rocha is "working on music constantly."

Wilk summarized the situation by suggesting that there were no huge obstacles to a reunion: "If [a reunion] will happen again or not, I have no idea, but I know at least the four of us are amicable and can talk to each other, and actually even go hang out on occasion, so I think more we just want to be friends first more than anything."

We'll hope for the best.
