In a statement released during the album announcement, Morello discussed the importance of the album and the need for new ideas. "The riffs and the beats led the way, but the extraordinary talents of the collaborators set my creativity into uncharted territory," he says.
"I've been devoted both musically and as an activist to fighting injustice at every turn," Morello adds. "Amid this heightened sense of impending doom, it's now time to rally the troops in a last-ditch effort to save the planet, and our artistic souls. By challenging the boundaries of what music is and has sounded like before, you can open people's eyes to changing the status quo in society."
