In a new interview with Bloody Disgusting, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello revealed that he is working on a new heavy rock album, to be released sometime in 2014. The effort, which may not be issued under the NIGHTWATCHMAN banner (unlike Morello‘s previous solo releases), “will be the first time since RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE or AUDIOSLAVE that I’ve made a really big rock record,” Tom said. “It’s just time to rock and I’ve written a batch of songs with huge riffs and huge grooves. I’m working it out with my band now and we’re about five songs deep at this point, but we’re taking our time with it. It will definitely be a release-the-hounds effort.”
Morello‘s third folk-oriented album under the THE NIGHTWATCHMAN name, “World Wide Rebel Songs”, came out in 2011 via New West Records.
Tom recently joined the lineup of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND for a series of shows in Australia while veteran E STREET BAND member Steven Van Zandt was filming a new TV show.
