Wis. Protests Inspire Morello’s ‘Union Town’—Download It Free

'Singer Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine has always been a strong supporter of working people. Morello was so inspired after taking part in a demonstration and headlining  a concert in February [2011] for the protesters at the state Capitol in Madison, Wis., that he wrote what he calls “fighting songs.”'

"The EP will be released in digital form on May 17 and on CD and vinyl on July 19 under Morello’s new deal with New West Records. Proceeds from sale of the album will go to the America Votes Labor Unity Fund to support mobilization for pushing back against the state attacks on workers."

Check out an interview with Morello today at here.
