Rise Against release new album "Wolves

After their acclaimed Underplay show at Berlin's SO36 in May , Rise Against their new album on Friday "Wolves". Throughout their career, Rise Against have always stood up for social justice. With "Wolves" the band challenges their fans to develop a new, courageous identity together. The album is about recognizing one's inner strength, it is a call: the hunted should become the hunter.

 

"In many ways, Rise Against concerts are a safe place for our fans"explains lead singer Tim Mcllrath. "But I've realized that I don't just want to create safe spaces, I also want dangerous ones, but where misogyny and xenophobia can't exist. I want to create spaces where such opinions have no air to survive, where these kinds of ideas are stifled. Wolves' is not about creating safe spaces, it's about creating a space where it becomes dangerous for injustice."

 

Rise Against recorded their eighth studio album "Wolves" with the Grammy-Winner Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Deftones) on. For the recordings, the band moved to Nashville, far away from Chicago and Los Angeles and in a state where Rise Against have hardly played live so far. All this had a clear influence on the new album.

 

"Living in Nashville has made us realize that we can't just focus on our differences"says Mcllrath. "If we stop doing that and talk to each other, face to face, we might realize what we have in common. We are all wolves in the same pack that circles the gates."

 

"Wolves" follows the 2014 album "The Black Market"which is directly Number 1 in the Official German Album Charts and was awarded gold. The album also reached #1 on the Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock Album Charts in the U.S., as well as #1 in Argentina, Brazil and Canada, among others.
