"We are all illegals" tour with Outernational and Weapons of Mass Creation
It has been more than one year since Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed controversial anti-immigrant legislation SB1070 into law provoking a swift activist response that stretched all the way to the music community in the form of theSound Strikeboycott. Since that time, and in the wake of certain provisions being struck down by a preliminary injunction, a number of bands previously committed officially and unofficially to the Sound Strike's call for canceling commercial shows in the state, including most recently Los Lobos, have reversed course and taken to the stage.
New York political rockers Outernational, touted by Tom Morelloback in 2006 as potentially the next Rage Against the Machine, remain steadfastly committed until SB1070 is fully repealed as they ready for two new releases.

Outernational which also features bassist Jesse Williams, guitarist Leo Mintek, with keyboards, harmonium and trumpet by Dr. Blum are clearly influenced by a variety of genres, but in spirit and fashion the Clash is an obvious parallel. Solay specifically cites Joe Strummer and The Clash's ability to inject "psychic soul and heart and meaning" into their songs
