Tim Commerford Releases First Single with New Band, 7D7D

Tim Commerford

Rage Against The Machine’s Tim Commerford unveiled a new project last year called 7D7D, and now we finally get to hear what it sounds like. The band has just released their debut track called “Capitalism,” and it might take some fans by surprise.

7D7D features Commerford on bass and vocals with Mathias Wakrat and Jonny Polonsky. “Capitalism” features a more upbeat sound with cynical lyrics. The bass still has a big, gnarly sound, though it has more forward momentum than a Rage groove.

7D7D is signed to Ben Harper’s Mad Bunny label. “I have always loved Tim’s music (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave) and I was immediately taken by the virtuosity of Mathias’ drumming and Jonny’s guitar playing,” Harper states. “Three-piece bands this potent are rare and I hope you love their music as much as I do.”

Harper also said, “Don’t miss them live,” although no tour dates or album details have been announced.
