Politically charged supergroup Prophets of Rage will make an appearance at Long Beach’s Fingerprints Records, 420 E. Fourth St., for an in-store performance on Friday, Sept. 22.

The collective is made up of Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine, Chuck D and DJ Lord of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill.

“We’ve done a couple of things with Chuck D over the years and we’ve had Tom Morello before, and they called and said they wanted to do it,” said Rand Foster, owner of Fingerprints.

The 7 p.m. show happens about a week after the release of the band’s self-titled 12-track album which mixes rap and rock with socially conscious and politically-driven lyrics.

It comes about a year after the band formed in 2016.

For tickets to the 250-person-capacity show people need to buy the album by calling 562-433-4996 or purchase it in person at Fingerprints.

The show is yet another score for the record store which has hosted artists such as Cold War Kids, Ryan Adams and Foo Fighters in the past.
