Tom Morello will follow up this year's The Atlas Underground Fire on December 3rd with a companion piece titled The Atlas Underground Flood.
As with the prior album, there are guests galore on...Flood, including Rush's Alex Lifeson, Kirk Hammett of Metallica, X Ambassadors, Manchester Orchestra, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and Idles. That's hardly all, though. Morello has just issued three tracks from it:"Human,"featuring Barns Courtney; "Hard Times,"with Nathaniel Rateliff, Jim Jones, and Chipotle Joe; and "Raising Hell," with Ben Harper.
Morello calls...Fire and...Flood his equivalent of London Calling by The Clash -- "a double album where artistic intent supersedes genre." (Louder Sound)
