Rage Against the Machine man takes the lead

Tom Morello has announced the details of his forthcoming solo debut album.

The former guitarist for Rage Against The Machine is singing lead vocals for the first time in his career on his project, The Nightwatchman.

Morello, who is currently in Audioslave, has been playing under the name for the past three years, but this is the first time he has recorded an album using the Nightwatchman moniker.

The 13-track ‘One Man Revoluntion’ will be released in the US on April 24 via Epic Records.
