Rise Against first made a name for themselves on famous indie punk label Fat Wreck Cords in the early 2000s. They joined major label Geffen in 2004 with the release of their album Siren Song of the Counter Culture, and crossed over to mainstream success. Since then, their records have gone on to crack the top ten of the Billboard 200 and been certified platinum (in Canada) and Gold (in the US). Their latest album, The Black Market, is set for release on July 15.
