Tom Morello & Boots Riley form Street Sweeper Social Club

Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and The Nightwatchman has joined up with controversial hip hop artist, Boots Riley of The Coup to form Street Sweeper Social Club. "It's revolutionary party jams," said Morello of Street Sweeper Social Club. "It's got huge steamroller riffs combined with depth, charge, funk, while Boots unloads clip after clip of incendiary rhymes rich with satire and venom."

The record is due out June 16, 2009 and the duo will be supporting the record on the forthcoming tour headlined by Nine Inch Nails and Jane's Addiction. You can check out two songs from the album on their myspace page.
