Tom Morello Premieres New Music Video for “Every Step That I Take” featuring Portugal. The Man & Whethan
- New York based rock guitarist Tom Morello teamed up with American rock band Portugal. The Man and DJ Whethan.
They have dropped a new music video for “Every Step That I Take”, directed by Sean Evans.
The song is included on his fourth studio album "The Atlas Underground", which was released last October.
Tom Morello support SAVE, a suicide prevention organization with the song. “[“Every Step That I Take”] deals with the haunting voices of fear and love on the steps of the emotional gallows. We are honored to be partnering with SAVE, a suicide prevention organization, with this track. You are not alone and there is always help available,” he said.
- A director Sean Evans crafted the video with 3-D scanning, “I started messing around with 3-D scanning end of last year because, as it turned out, I was walking around with a 3-D scanner, my freaking iPhone,” he said in a statement. “Using it gave insane results, this broken technology vibe, it seemed like a perfect look to create a world out of for every step that I take, though it proved to be quite an undertaking. Worth it in the end!”
Tom Morello said of the video, “Revolutionary labor troubadour Joe Hill was murdered by a Utah firing squad for a crime he did not commit.” He continued, “They pinned a heart & crosshairs to his chest so the firing squad wouldn’t miss. His ashes were mailed to the four corners of the world and from those ashes generations of new revolutionaries continue to rise. The Atlas Underground sprang from those ashes as well and is proof that ideas, songs and struggle are bulletproof.”
