Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine released the solo album, "The Fabled City," on September 30th, 2008 via Epic Records. The 11-song set is the anticipated follow up to the 2007 The Nightwatchman debut "One Man Revolution." Now being billed as Tom Morello: The Nightwatchman, the album is the first release to bear the political and social activist's birth name. "The Fabled City" was produced by Brendan O'Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam) and features appearances by System Of A Down's Serj Tankian and Shooter Jennings.
In addition to his career as a critically acclaimed solo artist, Tom Morello is a founding member and guitarist of the rock bands Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave. The two bands are responsible for multiple Grammy Awards and a combined 30 million albums sold worldwide. Widely known for his unique voice as a master electric guitarist, his compositions as Tom Morello: The Nightwatchman have been primarily based around the acoustic guitar. However, as his Myspace page firmly states, "You don't have to be loud, son, to be heavy as shit," and the stories and sounds presented throughout the album showcases a depth and intelligence rarely heard in the modern musical climate surrounding it. With more complex electric arrangements than displayed on "One Man Revolution," "The Fabled City" is the synthesis of his groundbreaking work as an innovative rock guitarist and revolutionary acoustic troubadour.
This special evening benefits Axis of Justice, a non-profit organization formed by Tom and Serj Tankian. Its purpose is to bring together musicians, fans of music, and grassroots political organizations to fight for social justice. "We aim to build a bridge between fans of music around the world and local political organizations to effectively organize around issues of peace, human rights, and economic justice."
