Rage Against the Machine‘s Tom Morello lends his shredding skills to “Weather Strike,” a new song from the Russian punk rock collective Pussy Riot.

“Pussy Riot is one of the most radical and important activist musical groups of all time,” Morello says. “Their fearless blending of art and confrontation is a constant inspiration and it’s an honor to combine forces on this powerful, revolutionary track “Weather Strike.”

“Both for Tom and me politics have been always closely intertwined with our music, like two sides of a Möbius strip,” adds Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova. “It’s an honor to collaborate and be friends with Tom. I feel strong, empowered, supported, seen, respected, when I work with Tom, I feel that we’re forming a good part of a revolutionary art army together, true allies and comrades.”

You can download “Weather Strike” now via digital outlets.

Pussy Riot is known for protesting the Russian government and President Vladimir Putin. Several members have been arrested for their performances and demonstrations.
