Despite reuniting for a tour and multiple festival appearances, Rage Against the Machine have no plans for a new album, says guitarist Tom Morello. "There are no plans for that," Morello told Billboard. "We've had a wonderful year and a half of playing shows, and I don't see any reason to not play more shows. The thing is there's only so many hours in the musical day, and mine are very occupied right now." Rage's last album of original material was 1999's The Battle of Los Angeles. Morello is instead focusing his musical output on his own Nightwatchman project. "I'm able to do everything I want as a musician under this tent." Rage singer Zack de la Rocha released an EP from his duo One Day As a Lion earlier this year.
