Rise Against

A Few Words with Rise Against

Originally rising out of a competitive Chicago punk scene, Rise Against has been bringing their music and their message to crowds all over the world for a couple of decades. Taking a moment between tours, singer and songwriter Tim McIlrath sat down for a few minutes to take some of our questions about the band, punk rock in the modern age, and their new album “Endgame.”
-Tell me about “Endgame.” How do you feel about it, what’s new about it and what’s different that the fans haven’t heard before?
It's a natural progression from appeal to reason. I think we've maintained a constant progression with every record and “Endgame” continues that. We've grown as song writers and as a band. I think it's apparent on “Endgame.”
