There’s really nothing that Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello can’t do, is there? Whether it’s playing with Rage, or solo as The Watchman or with Boots Riley in Street Sweeper Social Club, he’s usually nothing short of amazing.

“Rise Up” is the title track to the CH’s eighth studio album, which comes out April 20 on Priority Records.
Check out the clip, which premiered on AOL’s The Boombox today.
