Here we go! 

Some people never thought it would happen. But it's looking like Rage Against the Machine are back! At least for a few shows. 

A Rage Against the Machine Instagram account with the band's name randomly appeared overnight and started teasing some shows. 

... El Paso, TX March 26, 2020 Las Cruces, NM March 28, 2020 Phoenix, AZ March 30, 2020 Indio, CA April 10, 2020 Indio, CA April 17, 2020 -- Susana Hidalgo

Guitarist Tom Morello posted the same photo, which makes us believe it's not just a random account.

Drummer Brad Wilk also posted the image alongside another of the protests on the 27th.

The dates are as follows:

El Paso, TX March 26, 2020
Las Cruces, NM March 28, 2020
Phoenix, AZ March 30, 2020
Indio, CA April 10, 2020
Indio, CA April 17, 2020

Among the dates are two Indio, California stops, which fall in April. Coachella has already announced their 2020 dates, which includes two weekends as usual: April 10-12 and April 17-19. While not explicitly stated, it’s a pretty safe bet that those two dates are referencing the festival.

Beyond the posts though, we have no futher info if these dates are actually happening or not, no ticket on sale info or anything else. But we are sitting, waiting and hoping! 

What do you think, want to make the road trip down to the southwest to check out Rage?! 

See you in the pit!
