Tom Morello has announced the arrival of a second new album, The Atlas Underground Flood. It will serve as the sister release to October's The Atlas Underground Fire, and is scheduled to drop on December 3 via Mom + Pop Music.

To mark the news, the Rage Against The Machine guitarist has also shared its first three singles, Human ft. Barns Courtney, Hard Times ft. Nathaniel Rateliff, Jim Jones, and Chipotle Joe and Raising Hell ft. Ben Harper.

As per the last project, The Atlas Underground Flood will host a hoard of star-studded collaborators including Idles, Alex Lifeson, Kirk Hammett, X Ambassadors, Manchester Orchestra, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, among others.

Of the new album, Morello says, “The Atlas Underground Flood finishes what The Atlas Underground Fire started. Fire and Flood are my London Calling. Admiring The Clash at their apex moment, I sought to make a double album where artistic intent supersedes genre.

"I aimed to forge a central curated vision to tie together a sonically fearless, wild, and wide-ranging musical ambition with a tremendous cast of collaborators. And of course, there are many guitar solos.”
