AUDIOSLAVE Guitarist Hits The Road To Demand 'Truth'

Ex-RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE/current AUDIOSLAVE guitarist Tom Morello will be joined by political singer/songwriters Steve Earle and Billy Bragg next month for the Tell Us the Truth tour, according to Billboard.com.

Timed to coincide with the start of the 2004 presidential race, the three-week tour of U.S. clubs is slated to kick off in early November. Due to scheduling conflicts, Earle won't join the others until Nov. 11.

Before extending to the Northeast, the tour — which will also feature Lester Chambers of the Chambers Brothers — will dip into Florida in time for the forthcoming World Trade Organization meetings in Miami, Earle told Billboard.com. According to Earle, Morello, famed for his innovations and often unusual technique on the electric guitar, will be playing acoustic sets.

Earle said the tour is looking, quite simply, for more honesty and accountability from the mass media in their coverage of elections and the wars in Afghanistan and, especially, Iraq.
