Rage Against the Machine releases 'The Battle of Mexico City' live album to streaming services

Epic Records

If you were supposed to see Rage Against the Machine on their reunion tour this year, then perhaps listening to a live album might ease that pain.

The rap metal titans have released The Battle of Mexico City to streaming platforms. The set, which was originally released as a concert film in 2001, captures Rage’s 1999 performance in the Mexican capital during their tour behind their The Battle of Los Angeles album.

Rage, which had been inactive since 2011, announced in late 2019 that they were reuniting for a 2020 tour. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the outing’s been postponed to “such a time when we are confident it will be safe for our fans.”
