Due To play Hard Rock Calling along with Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band
Tom Morello: The Nightwatchman has joined the bill to play Hard Rock Calling in London’s Hyde Park on Saturday 14 July with Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band.
Tom Morello: The Nightwatchman has released 3 studio albums and one EP, and this summer marks his debut performance at Hard Rock Calling. Tom Morello joined Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band in 2008 in Anaheim, US collaborating on the ‘Ghost of Tom Joad’, which Rage Against the Machine have also covered. They reunited again last month on the first of Bruce Springsteen’s comeback dates in the US, joining up for a mind-blowing four-song set.
Here is a link for ‘Save The Hammer For The Man’ video featuring Ben Harper and Roots (see video above) . ‘Save The Hammer For The Man’ is from his latest album World Wide Rebel Songs on New West Records and the track was co-written with Ben Harper and features Harper on vocals and guitar.
While Morello’s previous solo albums as The Nightwatchman have primarily been acoustic affairs, World Wide Rebel Songs, features a full electric band, “The Freedom Fighter Orchestra” (comprised of Dave Gibbs on bass, Carl Restivo on guitar and piano, Chris Joyner on keyboard, and Eric Gardner on drums) and they will be playing with Tom on 14 July in Hyde Park.
When describing World Wide Rebel Songs, Morello stated, "Troubled times call out for troubled songs. World Wide Rebel Songs is an album of rousing hopelessness and this time The Nightwatchman has brought along his electric guitar to tip the scales. I wanted to capture a vibe midway between Johnny Cash and Che Guevara, murder ballads and Molotov anthems."
