RISE AGAINST KICK OFF U.S. PORTION OF FALL NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINE TOUR THIS WEEKEND
“The Violence” Captures #1 At Active Rock Radio
Rise Against bring their fall headline tour to the U.S. starting tomorrow, Saturday September 23, at Skyway Theater in Minneapolis, MN. The two-week run will hit markets across the Midwest and East Coast before wrapping up October 6 at the Stone Pony Summerstage in Asbury Park, NJ. Visit http://www.riseagainst.com for additional information and check out the full itinerary below.
This tour features support from Pierce the Veil and White Lung. Every pair of tickets for the headline dates includes a physical copy of WOLVES. Multiple shows have already sold out. The band recently wrapped a co-headline tour across North America with Deftones – from their stop in Houston, Houston Press wrote, “If any rock band could convince their fans to not bury their heads in the sand in 2017 America, it might just be Rise Against.”
The band are on tour supporting their eighth full-length, WOLVES (Virgin Records). The record bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative, Top Rock, and Hard Rock Albums charts and garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, Kerrang!, and more. Its lead single “The Violence” soared to #1 on Mediabase’s Active Rock chart, with over 20 million combined global streams to date. As a follow-up, their new single “House On Fire” has already amassed over 6 million combined global streams to date.
Rise Against – comprising Tim McIlrath (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Zach Blair (lead guitar), Joe Principe (bass) and Brandon Barnes (drums) – earned their fifth straight Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200 with WOLVES. Known for their artful combination of punk, rock, and alternative, the multiplatinum-certified Chicago quintet continue to deliver music that’s as insightful as it is infectious.
