Prophets of Rage Encourage ‘Hands Up’ in Live Show-Based Video
Get those hands up for Prophets of Rage! If you haven't already, the band's new video may motivate you to do so. The group just released a video for "Hands Up" that you can see in the player above.
The clip centers on the band's live show, offering a mix of live action performance footage and black-and-white photos taken both on and offstage at past shows, capturing the band in the moment and showcasing some of the passion of their live gigs. Prophets of Rage aren't the only ones on display, as you can gauge the energy this anthemic song yields by looking from behind the stage out as fans pogo, raise their fists and rock along to the track.
The stunning photography also finds the band members posing for group and individual portraits, with the individual shots in particular featuring fists or a very specific finger expressing the attitude with which they play.
"Hands Up" is featured on the band's self-titled full-length debut disc that was released earlier this year. The album has already yielded such pointed and political commentary as "Unf--ck the World," "Living on the 110" and "Radical Eyes," with "Hands Up" being a fitting companion.
Prophets of Rage have been taking their music to the people and after wrapping a European trek this week, the SoCal-based rockers will finish the year with a pair of December radio festival stops in San Diego and Los Angeles. See their remaining 2017 tour schedule here.
