classic photos from 2012’s OCCUPY SXSW show: Outernational and Tom Morello
THE WORLD TALKS ABOUT THE NEW SONG “FOR IT ALL NOW”
"Outernational is one of the few bands that means serious fucking business." - Remezcla: NYC, USA
"Stridshornen tutar. Slagorden ekar. Revolutionärerna ifrån Brooklyn är tillbaka. (Battle horns blare, slogans fly, the revolutionaries from Brooklyn are back)" - Rock Foto: Stockholm, Sweden
"It all reinforces their ”one-world music’ position, and encapsulates the modern times better than most others who attempt it, including Manu Chao." - Hell’s Rumbings: Montreal, Quebec, Canada
"This song is filled with lyrics that paint the reality of a revolutionary. They must be willing to put their very lives on the line. This song says nothing about being willing to kill, but speaks to being willing to die, with your head held high." - True Rebel: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
"El 2013 es un año muy importante para Outernational. Fue el comienzo de su gira internacional. Este resultado se vio reflejado en una nueva canción llamada ‘For It All Now’" - Terra: Bogotá, Colombia
"La banda, que Morello identificó como "el próximo Rage Against The Machine", y que de manera inteligente denomina su música "future rock" (rock del futuro) -sin entrar en polémicas o definir géneros separados, que de hecho su música los tiene todos-, estuvo tocando en Colombia el pasado semana." - Radionica: Bogotá, Colombia
“Çà fait longtemps que l’on attendait un groupe comme ça! (How long we have waited for a group like this!)” - MaMusicale: Paris, France

“In the beginning of our working relationship Tom [Morello] was fond of giving ‘assignments’. In essence, these were creative devices intended to jumpstart the process of writing a song or a way of focusing on a musical element to lay the foundation for the jam to come. With this song we were instructed to take the bass-line from Metallica’s ‘Seek & Destroy’ and make it the bass-line of our song with the exception being that it would be played backwards. That’s right, the same bass-line note-for-note but with the notes in opposite order. The song was also to be fast tempo and needed a gang vocal saying ‘BO!’ in the chorus.
Thank you for this! Can’t wait to see the rest!
