The news of the reunion broke early this morning when an Instagram account with the handle "rage against the machine" shared a list of 2020 dates. According to Forbes, "Wayne Kamemoto, a longtime associate of the band, just said, 'The band's social media is accurate.'" In addition, industry sources have confirmed to Consequence Of Sound that the posting is legitimate, and that the band is planning to play more shows beyond these initial dates.
It should be noted that none of the members of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE have addressed the reunion reports yet, but actress/musician Juliette Lewis, who is in a relationship with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE drummer Brad Wilk, liked the original Instagrampost.

This isn't a dream, this is real life."
