About Rise Against
Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Joe Principe (bass), Zach Blair (lead guitar), and Brandon Barnes (drums) have been in the studio and will be unveiling new material soon. The band will join Deftones on an extensive co-headline tour this summer, which will kick off on June 9. The Black Market (Interscope Records), Rise Against’s 2014 album, hit No. 1 on the Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock albums charts in the U.S. and topped album charts in Argentina, Brazil, Canada and Germany. Alternative Press said, “Whatever meaning you take from them [the songs]…one thing remains solid-the sheer heart with which they were forged and the very visceral emotion they contain” and Kerrang praised the album as “a magnificent wake-up call.”
