Tom Morello, Others Team Up For The Justice Tour
Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello will join forces with Tim McIlrath of Rise Against and Wayne Kramer of the MC5 for The Justice Tour, according to a press release.
The tour will bring them to Madison, Wisconsin; Cleveland, Ohio; and Flint, Michigan, this September with all profits benefiting The Nation Institute. Those dates can be found after the jump.
Last month, Morello released the EP Union Town, with all profits benefiting the America Votes Labor Unity Fund. The release consists of pro-union songs and was inspired by Morello’s performance in Madison back in February in protest to an anti-union bill put forward by Governor Scott Walker.
“This year’s Justice Tour aims to support independent media which is battling the mountain of disinformation and propaganda foisted on the public by right wing media barons,” said Tom Morello in a statement. “We will also return to the union battlegrounds of the Midwest to help steel the backbone of workers under siege.”
