Tom Morello Working on First Rock Record Since Audioslave
Guitarist Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave made a big announcement for the rock fans, revealing that he is finally working on a new guitar heavy record, currently set for a tentative 2014 release.

As the axeman told Bloody Disgusting, "it's just time to rock," noting that he has "written a batch of songs with huge riffs and huge grooves."

"I'm working it out with my band now and we're about five songs deep at this point, but we're taking our time with it," he said. "It will definitely be a release-the-hounds effort."

Morello also stated that the album likely won't be released under the Nightwatchman moniker because of the heaviness aspect. "This will be the first time since Rage Against the Machine or Audioslave that I've made a really big rock record," he said.

The latest Nightwatchman effort, "World Wide Rebel Songs," saw its release in August 2011 via New West Records as the third studio record by Morello's alter ego.

As far as the rock domain is considered, the axeman unleashed his latest heavy release in 2006 with Audioslave. Titled "Revelations," the album hit the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 chart with over 150,000 units shipped in the US during the first week.
