The Atlas Underground Fire will have an accompanying “sister album” entitled The Atlas Underground Flood having spoken at length in recent interviews that the collaborative process led to countless songs being created during the pandemic and that a second album seemed almost inevitable.

Featuring a number of all-star collaborators including Kirk Hammett, Nathaniel Rateliff, Ben Harper, X Ambassadors, Manchester Orchestra, and more, Morello will continue to showcase his incredible guitar-playing across these 12 new genre-bending tracks.

Morello said “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,” he said.

Today’s releases include: ‘Human’ featuring Barns Courtney, ‘Hard Times’ featuring Nathaniel Rateliff, Jim Jones, and Chipotle Joe, and ‘Raising Hell’ featuring Ben Harper.

The Atlas Underground Flood will be released via Mom + Pop Music and is available for pre-order now here.
