Tom
Morello and Boots Riley of the Coup have joined forces to form Street Sweeper
Social Club.  The group’s self-titled debut album will be released June 16th through Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group.  The 11-song set was
produced by Morello and features Riley on vocals, Morello on guitar and bass,
and Stanton Moore (Galactic) on drums. 

 

“It’s
revolutionary party jams,” said Morello of Street Sweeper Social Club. 
“It’s got huge steamroller riffs combined with depth, charge, funk, while Boots
unloads clip after clip of incendiary rhymes rich with satire and venom.” 
Riley added, “This is a time when the working class is being fleeced left and
right.  More families will be homeless and more people will be
jobless.  They’ll need something to listen to on their ipods while
storming Wall Street.” 

 

Street
Sweeper Social Club’s debut tour will be opening all dates in North
America on the Nine Inch Nails and Jane’s Addiction May-June Tour

The
songs “Fight! Smash! Win!,” “Clap For The Killers,” and “The Oath” by Street
Sweeper Social Club can be heard now at at the group’s MySpace page.
