Tom Morello’s insane cast of collaborators on new solo album includes Knife Party, Basenectar, Pretty Lights, and moreKnife Party Tom Morello

Tom Morello, guitarist for Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, and Prophets of Rage, has gathered an insane, A-list group of rappers and dance producers for his upcoming new solo LP, The Atlas Underground, coming out October 12 via Mom + Pop Music. Collaborators on the project include Big Boi, Killer Mike, RZA, Steve Aoki, BassnectarPretty Lights, Herobust, Knife PartyWhethanVic Mensa, Gary Clark Jr., Portugal. The Man, and more. He’s already dropped two singles from the album: “Battle Sirens” featuring Knife Party and “We Don’t Need You” featuring Vic Mensa.

Morello told Lars Ulrich, drummer for Metallica, on his Beats 1 radio show, It’s Electric!, “I wanted to make a record that was the [Jimi] Hendrix of now,” which he described has three components: extraordinary guitar playing that falls outside the norm, creating radio songs that connected with a mass audience, and fashioning a new genre of music. The idea was to combine Morello’s analogue guitar sound with his favorite producers, rappers, musicians, and singers of today. Noting the shared DNA between electronica and metal after listening to Knife Party and Skrillex, Morello became illuminated to the idea of making a cross-genre project, and now in a few months it looks like it’ll finally materialize.

1. Battle Sirens ft. Knife Party
2. Rabbit’s Revenge ft. Bassnectar, Big Boi, and Killer Mike
3. Every Step That I Take ft. Portugal. The Man and Whethan

Pretty Lights announces 10th anniversary Red Rocks show

This post was originally published on this site

Pretty Lights has been obscenely quiet for some time now, and it’s rumored amongst his tight-knit family following that the reason behind his silence is that he’s working on new album material. After all, his Color Map of the Sun LP was released more than five years ago. To add further fuel to that speculation, Smith has halted announcements for his heavily attended episodic tour that have been taking place over the last two years.

However, it wouldn’t be summer in Colorado without Derek Vincent Smith’s return to the beloved Red Rocks Amphitheater — and he’s not calling it an episodic tour stop either. Lineup support has yet to be announced, but if it’s anything like his previous events, fans can expect a fully loaded talent roster with funky groove appeal.

The special 10th anniversary event will take place over two nights, August 10-11, in Morrison, Colorado. A limited number of presale tickets will be available at 10 a.m. EST Wednesday, April 18, but fans must register for the Pretty Lights newsletter to get the special code.
