Tom Morello is living proof of the transformative power of rock'n'roll. As the co-founder of Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, and Prophets Of Rage, and through collaborations with everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Johnny Cash, he has continually pushed the limits of what one man can do with six strings.
On his album The Atlas Underground, Morello's transformed his sound into something even he could not have anticipated, blending Marshall stack riff-rock with the digital wizardry of EDM and hip-hop to create the most ambitious artistic effort of his storied career.
The Atlas Underground includes collaborations with Marcus Mumford, Portugal. The Man, the Wu-Tang Clans RZA and GZA, Vic Mensa, K.Flay, Big Boi, Gary Clark Jr., Pretty Lights, Killer Mike and Whethan among others. The riffs and the beats led the way, but the extraordinary talents of the collaborators set my creativity into uncharted territory, says Morello of the project.
The album features the singles "We Don't Need You" and "Battle Sirens".
The coffee table book gives a peek into Tom's artistic journey featuring never before seen photos throughout his career, an in-depth look at his guitar collection, and exclusive interviews with collaborators from the new record.
