Rise Against's Tim McIlrath is featured in a new video from Peta2. Video is in the replies.
As McIlrath explains to peta2, “I make a choice every time I take the stage. I choose to perform. Animals in captivity don’t get to make that choice.” In the entertainment industry, orcas are often separated from their families and forced to live in tiny concrete tanks that, to them, are no bigger than a bathtub. Their average life expectancy shrinks from 30 to 50 years in the wild to barely surviving past their teenage years in captivity.
Rise Against will be playing a show with Touche Amore and Radkey at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, New Jersey on September 30th. Tickets are available at Livenation. The show is to support their upcoming album The Black Market, due out tomorrow.
There’s no pleasing all of those people. All you can do is turn to yourself and make the songs that you want, and know they may not be for everybody. There is no song for everybody. It’s what makes us feel good at the end of the day. The only pressure we feel is the pressure we put on ourselves. So we take risks and we’re far past the point of wondering what people will think of them. We just make choices with our guts, which is something we’ve done for awhile.
You can check out the lyric video for Rise Against's new single, "I Don't Want to Be Here Anymore," at Guitar World. It's off the band's upcoming new album, The Black Market, which hits stores on July 15th.
The Black Market focuses on the cost of self-awareness. “Rise Against has always been a political band, but also a personal band,” says Tim. “We’ve always had songs that have a foot in both worlds. This album is a lot more introspective to me.” The intensely melodic strains of the first single: “I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore” is a case in point - riding a huge chorus and speaking of universal themes of entrapment and escape.

Today we're bringing you another edition of Looking Back and this time we're featuring Rise Against. While Revolutions Per Minute officially turned 10 last month, Fat Wreck Chords is reissuing an anniversary edition this coming Tuesday and you can still grab a pre-order over here. To start we have an interview with Joe Principe, which gets some of his perspective on the release. Then we want you to share your own thoughts about the record, which you can leave in the replies. My personal memory can be found below.
Revolutions Per Minute was my first Rise Against record, which I ended up buying after seeing the music video for "Heaven Knows" on MuchMusic's The Punk Show. That...
Rise Against will be reissuingRevolutions Per Minute on May 28th though Fat Wreck Chords to celebrate its 10th anniversary. It will include 10 bonus tracks of demos, expanded packaging and the originally recorded album.
I’ve been missing some of the heavy and fast and screamy parts we used to do more often, maybe something like that, something a little more raw and exposed, we still have that fire inside us and we’re unapologetic about it.
