Tom Morello has unleashed a studio version of ‘Marching on Ferguson’

Tom Morello performed at a benefit show last month in Los Angeles where he performed a new song called “Marching on Ferguson,” which was about the shooting death of Michael Brown and its impact on the people of Ferguson, Mo. Now, Morello has unleashed a studio version of the song, and it’s available for download via Ferguson October.

The song is part of the “Artists for Ferguson” series, which will see a variety of musicians releasing exclusive songs that are influenced by the situation unfolding in and around Ferguson, Mo.

“I’ve witnessed countless incidents of racially motivated police brutality in my lifetime and it’s time to say ‘Enough!’ in the name of all those wrongfully killed and abused,” Morello stated on his official Soundcloud page. “For all the courageous men and women raising their voices against injustice in Ferguson, and beyond, give ’em hell. This song is for you.”

“Marching on Ferguson” is available for free download, but those who wish may donate to Ferguson October on the website. “Money raised from the purchases of artist downloads will be contributed to the legal fund local organizations created for those arrested in the protests demanding change in the St. Louis area,” a statement explains on the site.

In other Morello news, the Rage Against the Machine guitarist is currently working on a new solo album.
