Harvard grad and Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello has signed to New West Records. The innovative rock guitarist and acoustic troubadour released his debut solo album as The Nightwatchman, One Man Revolution, in 2007 with its follow up, The Fabled City, quickly appearing the next year. He is set to release his forthcoming third Nightwatchman album, World Wide Rebel Songs, in late Summer.
In a press release, Morello, who makes his guitar sound like a turn table, stated, "I'm very excited to be working with New West. Their commitment to their artists is inspiring and I'm looking forward to fanning the flames of discontent with many Nightwatchman releases under their banner."
"We are proud to announce the signing of Tom Morello to our roster of great songwriters and performers," says George Fontaine, President and Owner of New West Records. "He is an amazing songwriter and guitar player as well as an inspiring activist. We are honored to be working with Tom at New West."
