Rage Against the Machine "will not be touring or playing live again," says drummer Brad Wilk in a new statement posted today (Jan. 3).

"Bottom of my heart. Thank you to every person who has ever supported us," Wilk writes in the caption of a statement that reads:

So while there has been some communication that this may be happening in the future… I want to let you know that RATM (Tim, Zack, Tom and I) will not be touring or playing live again.

At the time of publication, no statement has been issued through any of Rage Against the Machine's social media pages nor via any other member of the band.

The group finally hit the road in 2022, but on the second stop of the tour, frontman Zack de la Rocha tore his Achilles tendon during a performance in Chicago. The band made it through more dates -- with de la Rocha performing from a chair -- before eventually canceling the remainder of the tour.

This is a developing story and will continue to be updated as more information comes in.
