||NIGHTWATCHMAN TOM MORELLO NEW ALBUM
9th August 2011
Tom Morello's alterego, The Nightwatchman, is set to release a new solo album, 'World Wide Rebel Songs', on 30th August.
The Nightwatchman album is the anticipated follow up to 2008's 'The Fabled City'. Unlike most of Tom's mainly acoustic solo projects, the new album features a full electric band, The Freedom Fighter Orchestra, featuring Dave Gibbs (bass), Carl Restivo (guitar and piano), Chris Joyner (keyboards) and Eric Gardner (drums).

"Troubled times call out for troubled songs," says Tom. "'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."
