Tom Morello interview about his new album ‘The Fabled City’ under The Nightwatchman banner. The full article from this interview will appear on Subba Cultcha.

Um, on this record I feel much more comfortable bridging that gap and it’s reflected in the music, and it will be reflected  the live show on this tour.
