The Nightwatchman is a beast. Tom Morello (aka The Nightwatchman) is releasing another solo album later this month, World Wide Rebel Songs, and we’ve finally got a cut off of it to listen to. This is definitely a bit harder than any previous Nightwatchman offerings – he now has a backing band called The Freedom Fighter Orchestra. Here’s what Morello had to say about the new album:
“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.”
I’m ready for this thing to be here. I don’t always love every track Morello releases, but they are all very interesting. Plus he’s a guitar virtuoso.
