About Rise Against (12/6/2013)
Chicago product Rise Against originally performed under the moniker Transistor Revolt. The band first began to make some noise in 1999 when Joe Principe, former bassist for 88 Fingers Louie, combined his talents with the vocals of Tim McIllrath. Louie alum Dan Precision stepped in on guitar, and the addition of drummer Brandon Barnes completed the quartet, which signed to indie label Fat Wreck Chords and released the debut album, "Unraveling," in 2001.
Though the band found moderate success with its freshman effort, it wasn't enough to keep Precision in the fold. He was relaced by Todd Mohney of The Killing Tree, and after a tour in support of "Unraveling," the band returned to the studio to record their sophomore project, "Revolutions Per Minute." Principe and the gang fired up the buses again, participating in the 2003 Warped Tour before it moved to a major label in December 2003.
Rise Against would release "Siren Song of the Counter Culture" in 2004 on Geffen Records. It became their first album to crack the Billboard 200, and the follow-up "The Sufferer & the Witness" peaked at number 10, moving some 48,000 copies in its first week of release. The latter work was praised by critics for returning the band to its punk roots, and Rise Against soldiered on through a number of personnel changes to continue making new music. It rolled out "Appeal to Reason" in 2008 and its sixth studio album, "Endgame," in 2011.
Rise Against embarked on a two-leg United States tour with A Day to Remember in the spring of 2012 before they moved onto Europe, headlining a number of festivals along the way. A fall tour with Gaslight Anthem and Hot Water Music later closed out the year, and the band played its first ever performances on African soil in March 2013. They made stops in South Africa for the Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town legs of RAMFest, headlining the festival along with the UK band Bring Me the Horizon.
On May 22, Principe let the cat out of the bag in regard to the group's seventh studio album. He told AbsolutePunk.net they are aiming for a 2014 release, and as a stopgap between albums they released a compilation called "Long Forgotten Songs: B-Sides & Covers (2000-2013)."
