The new rap-rock act, which also includes Public Enemy star Chuck D, has lined up a series of gigs around the political event in Ohio, where Trump is expected to accept the candidacy to become Republicans' choice for President.

Guitarist Tom Morello told Bloomberg Politics, "There's a thing called the Republican National Convention in July, and that will be a perfect place for a band like Prophets of Rage to cause a ruckus.

"We will be there on the streets, in the field. We have a venue and there may be venues that will be spontaneous venues, it's hard to say. This is the kind of thing you don't broadcast to the local authorities prior to arrival."

The new band came together last month (May16) to perform a debut show at the Whiskey a Go Go club in Los Angeles.

Morello has been making it clear he's not a fan of the property tycoon-turned politician, calling Trump a "racist demagogue".

The Republican has chased off all his party rivals and is now set for a general election stand-off with either Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton, who Morello calls the "lesser of three evils".
