Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello Starts New Label


Former Rage Against The Machine frontman Tom Morello has started his own record label, Firebrand Records.

"The label gives you one-stop shopping for all your rebel-music needs," Morello told Rolling Stone. "It's the kind of label that I wish had existed my entire artistic life."

Morello has released a digital sampler with a variety of different styles of music to kick of the beginning of Firebrand.

"There are always artists on the frontlines of social justice struggles, and now they have one home and one label," Morello said. "But first and foremost the music has to be great. It's not just like, 'Hey, you wrote a song about Guatemala labor unions, come on our label.' There's an extensive vetting process. Separating the wheat from the chaff is key."

Morello is also busy working on his first album under his own name.
