Launch Radio Networks reports: RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello has added to his solo touring schedule as his political folk alter ego, THE NIGHTWATCHMAN. In addition to the dates he's already announced, Morello has booked a number of new shows in July, starting on the 10th in Detroit. Morello will also perform with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE this summer, but told Launch that touring on his own does have its advantages. "Say it comes to playing a benefit show, like, if I want to play — if we're approached by some worthy cause to play a benefit show in some other town," he said. "If it's a rock band, it's not easy to do, you know. You have to have a band meeting and decide to do it. You have to coordinate schedules and get a tour manager and a lighting rig and roadies and all that. And, you know, if someone asked me to play that show, I just pick up my guitar and I get on a plane, and I'm there to play it."

Morello's debut disc as THE NIGHTWATCHMAN, "One Man Revolution", arrived in stores on April 24.

The guitarist has a full schedule of solo shows lined up for this spring and summer, including headlining gigs and opening stints for BEN HARPER.

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE has confirmed four dates on the Rock The Bells tour, in late July in New York City and mid-August in California. The reactivated group has reportedly scheduled a concert in East Troy, Wisconsin on August 24, but there's been no official word on any more RAGE shows.

Newly confirmed NIGHTWATCHMAN tour dates:

July 10 - Detroit, MI - The Shelter
July 11 - Chicago, IL - Schubas Tavern
July 13 - Minneapolis, MN - 7th St. Entry
July 15 - Denver, CO - Larimer Lounge
July 17 - Portland, OR - Doug Fir Lounge
July 18 - Seattle, WA - Crocodile Café
July 20 - San Francisco, CA - Swedish Hall
July 21 - Los Angeles, CA - The Troubadour
