Commerford and Wilk make their first appearances on Top Rock Albums as fully fledged band members since Audioslave topped the chart for a week in 2006 with Revelations; Wilk drummed on Black Sabbath‘s 2013 No. 1 album 13.

The group’s debut single, the aptly named “Prophets of Rage,” concurrently rises to 8-6 on the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart and 42-40 on Hot Rock Songs.
