This summer, Rise Against is coming to Philadelphia in support of their new album, Nowhere Generation. Don't miss them at the Skyline Stage on August 1st with Descendents and Spanish Love Songs.
On Nowhere Generation, the multi-Gold and Platinum band Rise Against draws a line in the sand with its blazing and aggressive punk rock and lyrics that shine a spotlight on the social and economic deck that has been stacked against our younger generations' pursuit of The American Dream.
"There's this idea that we all are raised on, believing that your generation will be a continuance of your parents' generation — if not even a more fruitful era," said singer/guitarist/lyricist Tim McIlrath. "And it seems like the American Dream isn't turning out the way it's supposed to for a lot of people. Young people aren't quite climbing that ladder the way they were in the past. I feel for this generation and think it's something that should be recognized." Lyrically, much of the band's upcoming ninth studio album was inspired by listening to his young daughters and a community of fans, seeing firsthand the generation gap growing quicker than ever before while mired in chronic social, economic, and political instability. "Our hope on this record," continues McIlrath, "is to jostle people awake, even if it makes you uncomfortable."
