Rise Against has announced a fall tour of North America. The punk rock band has had two sold out shows at The Joint and are returning to Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for another show on Monday, October.
Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Tim McIlrath, bassist Joe Principe, drummer Brandon Barnes and guitarist Zach Blair, Rise Against released its sixth studio album Endgame in March 2011 via DGC/Interscope. The album’s first single, “Help Is On The Way,” was inspired by McIlrath’s visit to New Orleans following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil disaster. Rise Against’s previous efforts include Appeal to Reason (2008), The Sufferer and the Witness (2006) and Siren Song for the Counterculture (2004), which gave way to hits such as “Swing Life Away,” “Ready to Fall,” “Prayer of the Refugee” and “Savior.” Since the band’s launch more than a decade ago, Rise Against has accumulated three gold albums and several gold singles.
Rise Against released the Satellite digital EP in mid-April. Satellite is available exclusively at iTunes and includes the studio version of “Satellite” along with the video for the band’s third single off their sixth studio album Endgame. Additionally, live versions of “Savior” and “A Thousand Good Intentions” both recorded at the House of Blues in Boston are included on the EP.
