Tom Morello is gearing up to release his new guest-filled solo album The Atlas Underground on October 12, and he's now touring up to its release. The tour began at NYC's Le Poisson Rouge last night (10/1), and Tom performed the entire album from start to finish. Before he did that, though, he opened the show by talking for about 15 minutes about his background, his days with Rage Against the Machine, and his days studying at Harvard. Then he played a few song fragments, including part of Audioslave's "Like A Stone" as a tribute to his fallen Audioslave bandmate Chris Cornell. He also jammed out part of Ozzy Osbourne's "Mr. Crowley" (which he's done with Ozzy in the past).

After playing the album, he played his Bruce Springsteen collaboration "The Ghost of Tom Joad," invited a ton of fans on stage to cover "This Land Is Your Land," and ended with a Rage Against the Machine classic, "Killing in the Name." Check out the full setlist and some videos from the show below. Pictures are in the gallery above.

Tom plays LPR again tonight (10/2), and it's sold out.
