While Miami still recovers from this year’s Ultra Music Festival, headlines still keep coming…
One of the key moments for us during the event was the Knife Party / Pendulum live stream. A legendary climax to a weekend full of incredible sets across the entire electronic realm, Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen didn’t disappoint.
One particular highlight during the Knife Party chapter of the set was the surprise arrival of Tom Morello. A founding member of Rage Against The Machine and successful solo artist who has previously collaborated with the likes of The Prodigy and The Crystal Method, his collaboration with Knife Party has been anticipated and speculated since May last year.
At first it was expected to drop on Knife Party’s Trigger Warning EP last November but it’s now clear the track was created for a much larger project. In the last two days Tom has since revealed more details.
The riff-heavy, bass-busted collaboration has been confirmed Battle Siren and it will appear on Tom Morello’s latest project Atlas Underground

Tom has described Atlas Underground like this…
“Atlas Underground is not a band, it’s a plan. One part Marshall stack blowtorch heart and soul, one part Mecha-Godzilla titanium bass drop. Heaven help you all.”
Heaven help us! Considering Morello has previous shared images of himself and Skrillex in the studio, there’s a strong change Atlas Underground could develop into something very impressive and exciting.
Dancing Astronaut caught the whole track. It’s the best version of it we’ve found to date and can’t wait to hear the full studio version in due course…
