Tom Morello To Release His First Full-Length Solo Rock Album

June 13, 2024

Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello new solo single, “Soldier In The Army Of Love”, is being released on June 28! And you’ll love this, the song was co-written with his “guitar wizard son” Roman Morello, and Tom says it’s “a generational rock anthem from the Morellos.”

 

Last year, Tom shared footage on his Instagram account of the 12-year old Roman playing RATM’s “Killing In The Name” with Tom’s Rage bandmates Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk while the band was on tour in ’22.

At the time, Morello wrote, “Upon our Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction I’d like to say thank you to all the RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE fans who over the course of 30+ years have been the heart and soul of the music. One of my favorite memories is my son Roman (who became a fan on tour) rocking Killing In The Name with Tim & Brad at a soundcheck in 2022.”

Morello spoke to Rolling Stone magazine in March ’23 saying that Roman could already outplay him on lead guitar, despite the fact that he was only 11 years old.

“I’ve been very inspired by my 11-year-old son. I’ve been relegated to being the rhythm guitar player in my family now because my 11-year-old can shred circles around me. I’ve been inspired by him. He’s been writing some riffs, and I’ve been writing some riffs. It’s been fun.”

In October ’22, Rage Against The Machine cancelled their North American tour, three months after singer Zack De La Rocha severed his left Achilles tendon.

Ouch.

Morello was the only member of RATM who attended the band’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony last November.

Do you think Tom’s solo work is as good as Rage material?
