After years of recording and collaborating with a dizzying number of musicians, prolific axeman Tom Morello combined his inspired guitar wizardry and revolutionary's spirit with a genre smorgasbord of surprises on The Atlas Underground. Billed as a genre of music that hitherto hadn't existed, The Atlas Underground blends Morello's guitar firepower with pounding EDM beats, cutting social justice rhymes, and urgent rock vocals, like a modernized union of the Judgment Night and Spawn soundtracks from the '90s. In regards to Morello's own sprawling discography, this set honors the spirit of outspoken protest from his dusty Nightwatchman work, but veers closer to the cross-genre aggression of Street Sweeper Social Club and Prophets of Rage. Considering his past work with the Prodigy ("One Man Army") and the Crystal Method (Tweekend, Drive), as well as his penchant for guitar-as-turntable scratching, it should come as no surprise that Morello isn't a stranger to electronic dance music. And yet, The Atlas Underground is still unexpected, a novel effort that packs enough punch to incite a riot on the dancefloor or in the mosh pit. The impressive list of features culls voices from the worlds of rap, indie rock, and punk, while production is provided by artists better known for big drops and high bpms. Each song is a story in itself, with a cast of characters that could fill a festival lineup (including Portugal. The Man's John Gourley, Marcus Mumford, K.Flay, Phantogram's Josh Carter, Pretty Lights, Gary Clark, Jr., Whethan, Dave Sitek, Leikeli47, Baauer, Miguel, and more), making The Atlas Underground a head-spinning album that plays like a soundtrack or greatest-hits compilation. On the rock end, Rise Against frontman Tim McIlrath and producer Steve Aoki -- a former political activist himself -- collide for the fiery festival banger "How Long," which slaps an Aoki beat onto McIlrath's howling cries of "How long can we drown out [the hungry mouths and burning streets] while the bombs fall at our feet?" Distilling anger and frustration, the rappers turn out the most pointed and socially relevant tracks. Atlanta double-threat and Dungeon Family brothers Killer Mike and Big Boi join Bassnectar on the rabid "Rabbit's Revenge," which shines a light on police brutality and the black lives violently taken across the United States. Alongside producer Carl Restivo and Run the Jewels affiliate Boots, Chicago MC Vic Mensa delivers the defiant "We Don't Need You," which rallies against a broken system rife with inequality, violence, and lies. Wu-Tang Clan's RZA and GZA even make an appearance, joining Herobust on the pro-proletariat closer that urges "Rise...we are many, they are few." Elsewhere, Knife Party deftly fuses Morello's wah-wah guitar effects with towering drops on "Battle Sirens," while Restivo takes an unused Rage Against the Machine/Audioslave riff and twists it into a juicy, industrial-edged blues jam. Frustrated, hungry, and full of rage, The Atlas Underground is a rallying cry set against an inventive and propulsive backdrop that inspires a physical response as much as thoughtful action. ~ Neil Z.

Daredevil Records use The Planet app powered by Shopify to neutralize your shipping emissions and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Daredevil Records has committed to donating the most amount of money possible from your order to offset C02 emissions.  

This includes funding innovative solutions such as direct air capture and mineralization, and a small portion of nature-based carbon removal.

These funds companies such as 44.01, Carbofex, CarbonBuilt, CarbonCure, Charm Industrial, Climeworks, DroneSeed, Grassroots Carbon, Heirloom Carbon, Loam, Noya, Pachama, Planetary, Remora, Running Tide, and Sustaera.

Carbon Removal Process

Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.

For example, if a truck or a plane that delivers your shipment releases 1 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and you are subscribed to the Planet app, then Shopify ensures that 1kg of CO2 is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away using solutions and technologies in Shopify Sustainability Fund.

There is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal technologies in different stages of development. These technologies include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture and mineralization.

How Shipping Emissions Are Calculated

The Planet app combines data from our store with industry data and peer-reviewed models to estimate how much CO2 your shipments release into the environment. Because the Planet app makes sure that CO2 shipping emissions are removed entirely, all values that are used in the data models are rounded up.

Review the following table to learn more about the which data is used to determine shipping emissions:

Factor

Primary value

If primary value isn't available

Weight

Weight of the shipment

An average shipment weight

Distance

Distance traveled according to the tracking data

Straight-line distance between the origin and destination address, multiplied by an uncertainty factor of 1.5

Type of transportation

Truck or plane carbon emissions, determined by speed and distance

Truck emissions

To estimate your emissions, the Planet app uses order tracking data associated with the tracking number assigned to the shipment. If the tracking number isn’t available or the shipping carrier isn’t supported, then the Planet app multiplies the estimated emissions by an uncertainty factor of 1.5. The uncertainty factor helps make sure that all your emissions are removed. If any data is inconsistent or missing, then the Planet app uses a reasonable maximum value instead.

For example, suppose that you ship a package from Boston to New York. The straight-line distance is 305.94 km, but the shortest road route is around 350 km. If tracking data is available, then the Planet app uses the exact distance traveled.

However, if no tracking data is provided, then 305.94 km is used in the base calculation, and the resulting emissions would be multiplied by 1.5. This calculation accounts for variations in the route, such as distances traveled from post offices and distribution centers, and the route taken by the courier to deliver the package to your customer's door.

Considerations for using the Planet app

Review the following considerations for the Carbon Neutral Shipping Planet app:

  • The models and estimates aren’t exact, but the Planet app overestimates your emissions to make sure that they’re entirely removed. 
  • The Planet app removes only carbon (CO2) emissions that account for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation. Other emissions such as CH4, N2O, and GHG aren’t removed.
  • Orders that are shipped by sea transportation (we do not ship any orders by sea) don't generate the data required to accurately calculate emissions. Instead, industry-accepted alternative methods are used to calculate emissions.
  • The Planet app currently focuses on addressing emissions from shipping-related transportation.
