Chicago punk rockers Rise Against are currently out on the road touring their new album Endgame, produced by Jason Livermore and Bill Stevenson.
“It’s been incredible to watch a few songs already taken on new meanings even before they had been released,” the band says in a statement on their website. “Inspired by New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, ‘Help Is On The Way’ resonates with what is happening now in Japan as well as the recent flooding in Australia. ‘Architects’ speak of a generation of people designing the world we want to live in, and in revolutions in Egypt and other places in the middle east, we can see those very architects shaping the future and laying down the foundations for a new model. ‘Disparity By Design’ discusses income disparity, and we see that design to keep the rich rich and the poor poor, as well as the push back against it happening now in Madison, Wisc. There too, the architects of tomorrow are on the streets as we speak.”
Rise Against also recently announced a split 7″ with punk icons Face to Face. One side of the vinyl features Rise Against track “Blind,” while the other is dedicated to Face to Face cut “The Good Left Undone.” Order it here.
