Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello will release a new EP entitled 'Union Town' later this month.

The guitarist, who releases solo material under the name The Nightwatchman, will put out the eight-track collection digitally and on vinyl through New West Records. 'Union Town' will feature three original tracks - 'A Wall Against the Wind', 'Union Town' and 'Which Side Are You On?' - plus covers.

Speaking to the LA Times, Morello explained that the songs were written in response to workers' demonstrations he attended in Madison, Wisconsin.



"I was so inspired by what I saw in Madison,” he said. “I’ve talked to workers across the country, and I played a rally in Los Angeles months ago, and I can tell you that working-class people are not taking tyranny by the teaspoon and they’re not taking it by the pound. My great hope is this record can put some wind in their sails.”

Proceeds from sale of 'Union Town' will go to the America Votes Labor Unity Fund.
