Rage Against the Machine are heading out on their previously-postponed US tour dates next month and have shared a clip of a recent rehearsal session to whet fan’s appetites.

In the short clip, posted on Instagram, the group can be heard running through 30 seconds of War Within a Breath from the band’s 1999 album, The Battle of Los Angeles. It’s a storming rendition of the track – sounding tight and aggressive – and showing no signs of rust setting in, despite its age and the fact the band have not performed live together since 2011.
