Tom Morello's THE NIGHTWATCHMEN To Release A Solo Album


Tom Morello is set to release the solo album, World Wide Rebel Songs, on August 30th via New West Records. The 12-track set is the anticipated follow up to the 2008 The Nightwatchman album The Fabled City and was produced by Morello. "It Begins Tonight" is impacting rock/alternative radio now.

The track "Save The Hammer For The Man" was co-written with Ben Harper and features Harper on vocals and guitar. While Morello's solo albums as The Nightwatchman have primarily been acoustic affairs, World Wide Rebel Songs, features a full electric band, "The Freedom Fighter Orchestra" (comprised of Dave Gibbs on bass, Carl Restivo on guitar and piano, Chris Joyner on keyboard, and Eric Gardner on drums).

World Wide Rebel Songs is the 14th studio album of Tom Morello's influential career.
When describing World Wide Rebel Songs, Morello stated, "Troubled times call out for troubled songs. World Wide Rebel Songs is an album of rousing hopelessness and this time The Nightwatchman has brought along his electric guitar to tip the scales. I wanted to capture a vibe midway between Johnny Cash and Che Guevara, murder ballads and Molotov anthems."
