Tom Morello surprised fans yesterday (Wednesday, November 17th) with the announcement of his latest project, a sister album to The Atlas Underground Fire, called The Atlas Underground Flood, which will be released on December 3rd. The Atlas Underground Fire was just released last month.
The Atlas Underground Flood includes 12 tracks featuring all-star collaborators including Nathaniel Rateliff, Jim James, IDLES, Ben Harper, Alex Lifeson, Kirk Hammett, X Ambassadors, Barns Courtney, Manchester Orchestra, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and more.
Morello said, “The Atlas Underground Flood finishes what The Atlas Underground Fire started. Fire and Flood are my ‘London Calling.’ Admiring The Clash at their apex moment, I sought to make a double album where artistic intent supersedes genre. I aimed to forge a central curated vision to tie together a sonically fearless, wild, and wide-ranging musical ambition with a tremendous cast of collaborators. And of course, there are many guitar solos.”
