Tom Morello Reveals Special Guests for New Project
Tom Morello has released a new teaser video for his impending solo project, Atlas Underground, which lists off a slew of guests he has apparently collaborated with. Names include Skrillex, Marcus Mumford of Mumford and Sons, Bassnectar, GZA and RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan, Big Boi of Outkast, Killer Mike of Run the Jewels, Gary Clark Jr., X Ambassadors and Matt Shultz of Cage The Elephant, among others.
The video also features an audio clip of what can assumed to be a new song. Fans can hear a groove-heavy riff that builds tension before giving way to an EDM drop. Morello also shared a separate teaser on Tuesday (July 24) which also featured a clip of new music. You can hear both below.
Morello's other current project, Prophets of Rage, recently released a new song, titled "Heart Afire." The track comes just as band members Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk recently revealed that they had just polished off their work on a new 13-track album. While release details are still pending, Commerford told Kaaos TV, "It's a different direction, it's not the same, and I love that. I grew up, and Brad grew up, listening to bands that made records and you were waiting at the record store to hear what it might sound like — the new record by some band. And so that's the way I feel like we're doing it right now. We're growing and we're creating and we're going in a new territory and I feel really good about it."
