Executive produced by Grammy-winner T Bone Burnett, the show will focus on Morello’s social activism through music, combining storytelling and performance to dissect the “intersection of craftsmanship and conscience.”
The show will be recorded by Audible and available for download as the first of several upcoming collaborations with Burnett.
“Morello is a first-rate musician and a first-rate intellect,” Burnett said per a press release. “He makes profound American music, and his story is a profound American story.”
Having released his first solo project The Atlas Undergound last year, Morello is ready to get personal with his experiences as a member of several prolifically political music projects.
“I was the only black kid in an all-white town, the only anarchist at a conservative high school, the only heavy metal guitarist at Harvard University, and the only Ivy League Star Trek nerd in the biggest political rap rock band of all time,” Morello said. “The songs, the stories, the triumphs, the tragedies, the riffs, the rebellion – all will be revealed. Oh, and I’m going to play a lot of ripping guitar too.”
Tickets will be available via Ticketmaster for Audible members Aug. 14 at 12 p.m. EST and open to the public on Aug. 16 at 12 p.m. EST.
