The project will release One Man Revolution on April 27, 2007 and was formed in 2003, when Morello was struck by a desire to return to political activism after over a year of playing non-political rock in Audioslave. Morello first toured in his solo configuration back in 2003, joining legendary political/folk act Billy Bragg for the Tell Us the Truth tour.
Many of the songs follow in the tradition of influential political/folk acts, with Morello aiming to provide a statement of solidarity with other activists on the front lines.
The first song from the album is available via this myspace page.
The Los Angeles Times recently described the song:
The song's lyrics, forged in an almost Biblical allegory of revolution, commitment and revenge, may bear a certain resemblance to Johnny Cash's more defiant moments, but the delivery is pure Leonard Cohen, all sawdust and mud in the larynx
