Rolling Stone Praises “Blazing” First Single, “The Violence”

Summer Co-Headline Tour With Deftones Launches Tonight With Sold-Out Show In Chicago

WOLVES (Virgin Records), the new album from Rise Against, is out today and available everywhere. Visit  Recorded with GRAMMY®-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Deftones), WOLVES is the follow-up to 2014’s The Black Market, which 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.

Tonight, the band kicks off its summer co-headline tour with Deftones with a sold-out show at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Rise Against’s hometown of Chicago. The run, which features special guest Thrice, will include shows at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY (June 13), Starplex Pavilion in Dallas, TX (June 27) and Concord Pavilion in Concord, CA (July 6).

Rise Against will headline Los Angeles’ Shrine Exposition Hall on July 13 and 14 and launch a North American headline tour with special guests Pierce the Veil and White Lung on September 14. Tickets are on sale now. Every pair of tickets for the upcoming fall headline dates includes a physical copy of Wolves. See below for itinerary.

Kerrang awarded WOLVES five out of five stars and noted, “The world may be getting worse, but Rise Against are still getting better.” Praising the album’s “fervent first single, Rolling Stone said, “‘The Violence’ is packed with jagged guitar riffs and rumbling drums that combine with Tim McIlrath punchy vocals to create a furious tension that finally bursts with a soaring chorus. ‘Are we not good enough?’ McIlrath howls. ‘Are we not brave enough?/ Is the violence in our nature just the image of our maker?’” View the lyric video for “The Violence” HERE.

Rise Against is Tim McIlrath (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Zach Blair (lead guitar), Joe Principe (bass) and Brandon Barnes (drums). Throughout its career, the band has kept its moral compass steady, using its international punk platform to speak out for social justice. With WOLVES, the band challenges fans to join them in recognizing the power within and creating a bold new identity together.
