Tom Morello lends his shredding chops to a new song from punk mainstays Anti-Flag, “A Dying Plea, Vol. 1.”

Along with the Rage Against the Machine guitarist, the guest-heavy track also features rap-rock artist DE’WAYNE, Marcia Richards of the band The Skints, and vocalist Jalise Della Gary, who’s the niece of Anti-Flag bassist Chris Barker, aka Chris #2.

“With the civic duty of voting behind us and while the world waits to see the electoral outcome, we must turn our attention to the next phases of the work we all need to be doing,” Anti-Flag says in a statement.

“Working to hold these people accountable, fighting racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and all bigotry,” the band adds. “The change we seek doesn’t come from presidents, prime ministers or popes. It has historically and will always come from The People.”

“A Dying Plea, Vol. 1” is available now for digital download. Proceeds will benefit the charity organizations SisTers PGH, SARI, The JusticeLA Coalition and My Block, My City, My Hood Chicago.

Meanwhile, you can also see Morello in a new documentary about Anti-Flag, Beyond Barricades: The Story of Anti-Flag.
