Pussy Riot and Tom Morello Join Forces for 'Weather Strike'
Pussy Riot have teamed up with Rage Against the Machine hero Tom Morello for a new collaborative track. It's called "Weather Strike," and you can check out the track's new video now.

It goes without saying the "Weather Strike" is a protest song, and it's one they all co-wrote.

"Pussy Riot is one of the most radical and important activist musical groups of all time," Morello said in a statement. "Their fearless blending of art and confrontation is a constant inspiration and it's an honour to combine forces on this powerful, revolutionary track 'Weather Strike.'"

Pussy Riot's Nadya Tolokonnikova added:

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

"Weather Strike" is a dreamy, utopian track for me, we loudly proclaim the future we want to see: alternative systems of public safety where police violence is no longer an issue, an ultimate joy of rebellion and rejecting injustice, and also I sing about my dream to turn the main FSB (ex-KGB) building into an immersive museum where we're going to learn about dark moments of Russian history — I'll make it happen when Putin is not longer in power.
