The hardcore punk scene is buzzing with the latest hint from Inside Out, the Orange County-based group known for its raw energy and intense music, led by none other than Zack de la Rocha before he rose to fame with Rage Against The Machine.
Recently, their social media activity has sparked rumors of a potential reunion in 2024, leaving fans eagerly wondering about the lineup for this much-anticipated comeback.
Inside Out, active from 1988 to 1991, teased fans with an Instagram post featuring their song “Sacrifice,” accompanied by the intriguing question, “For 2024, which lineup?” This query has set the internet ablaze with speculation.
The band’s sole EP, “No Spiritual Surrender,” released in 1990, is still celebrated by hardcore enthusiasts for its intense sound and passionate lyrics.
The possible lineup for this reunion could be a mix of the original members who recorded the EP, including Zack de la Rocha (vocals), Vic DiCara (guitar), Mark Hayworth (bass), and Chris Bratton (drums).
However, Inside Out’s history also includes a diverse roster of musicians such as Rob Haworth, Alex Barreto, Sterling Wilson, Mike Down, Joey Piro, and Michael Rosas, raising questions about whether the reunion might feature previous members or introduce new faces.
This reunion speculation comes after Rage Against The Machine’s recent comeback tours ended prematurely due to Zack de la Rocha’s ACL injury in 2022.
The band’s impact, including their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, where guitarist Tom Morello accepted the award in the absence of other members, underscores the significant influence de la Rocha has had on the music industry.
Stay tuned for more updates as one of hardcore’s seminal bands hints at a powerful comeback.
