AUDIOSLAVE guitarist Tom Morello revealed during the Lollapalooza press conference on Monday (Feb. 10) that the revived summer tour is fully backing his political organization, Axis Of Justice. The organization, which Morello formed with members of SYSTEM OF A DOWN, hopes to make people aware and pro-active in a socio-political setting.

"Yeah, there will definitely be an Axis Of Justice installation here at Lollapalooza this year," Morello said. "It'll be the biggest one that we've had so far and I think that's the thing that really separates from any of the other tours that are going out this summer. It's the incredible music it's the ideas contained in the concert. It's the bands, it's the fans, it's the community that it builds among bands, among fans. It's unlike anything that's been going out for the last five years, and certainly anything else that's going out this year. And we're really proud to be a part of it."
