Remember when Rage Against the Machine released the “Sleep Now in the Fire” music video in 2000 that predicted Trump as president? Turns out, Rage Against the Machine’s music is more relevant now than ever. That’s why we’ve formed Brass Against the Machine, a NYC-based brass band covering rage and other protest music—because we need this music now more than ever before.

Brass Against the Machine features 9 band members: Andrew Gutauskas (Bari Sax/Arranger), Brad Hammonds (Guitar/Arranger), Darius Christian (Vocals/Trombone), Sophia Urista (Vocals), Mariel Bildsten (Trombone), Wayne Tucker (Trumpet), Oskar Stenmark (Trumpet), Steven Duffy (Sousaphone) and Nathan Bell (Drums)—some of NYC’s top musicians. They’ve come together to form a unique brass band that combines rock and edgy hip-hop to create music that is both powerful and empowering.

Founded by Brad Hammonds, the band covers Rage Against the Machine, Living Colour, Gil Scott Heron, Janes Addiction, A Tribe Called Quest, and Led Zeppelin, amongst others. For their latest video they decided to mash Beyonce’s “Freedom” with RATM’s Freedom.

In a politically challenging era, it’s our time to stand up against the machine. Brass Against the Machine’s first and foremost goal is to make exceptional music. Yet we would be remiss to not also note the unfortunately exceptional times we live in. We want our music to not just sound inspiring; we want our music to resonate with people’s emotions and encourage action. We’re producing exceptional music with a political edge.

We are angry, we are inspired, we are ready for change—and we hope our music amplifies this energy in everyone who listens.
