The chaotic 2016 elections now have a new soundtrack.

Members of Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill have teamed up to form the rap-rock supergroup Prophets of Rage, which Rage guitarist Tom Morello described as a “elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bull—-,” according to a release.

The band embarks on a summer North American tour starting July 19 in Cleveland, during the Republican National Convention, with a portion of the proceeds from each show going towards local homeless charities. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday for the Chicago area show, Sept. 3 at the Hollywood Casino Ampitheatre.

Joining Libertyville High grad Morello on the Prophets lineup is Chuck D from Public Enemy, B-Real from Cypress Hill and Rage bandmates Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk.

Prophets played warm-up gigs last week at the Whisky and the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles and, after their Governors Ball set was canceled due to weather, at Brooklyn at Warsaw Ballroom Sunday night, where they covered the Beastie Boys’ “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” and Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power.”
