Rise Against are set to play their first North American dates since the release of their seventh studio album The Black Market on July 15, 2014 via Interscope Records. Highlighted by their marquee slots at all three of the 2014 Riot Fest dates, the tour will touch 22 cities starting August 31st, and includes appearances at Made in America and Voodoo Festivals. Touché Amoré and Radkey will support on all headline dates.
Their latest release The Black Market debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and landed #1 on the iTunes Alternative Album Chart. First single "I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore" is Top 10 at Alternative and Active Rock radio and its accompanying video showcases the band's commitment to raising awareness of the overwhelming presence of violence that plagues the world.
After 15 years and six incendiary albums, Rise Against has become one of the most successful, challenging and revered punk rock bands on the planet. Rise Against have sold four million albums globally across their last four releases – with 2011's Endgame debuting at number one in Germany and Canada, and number two on the U.S. Billboard Album Chart.
Rise Against is Tim McIlrath (Lead Vocals, Guitarist), Joe Principe (Backup Vocals, Bass Guitarist), Brandon Barnes (Drummer) and Zach Blair (Lead Guitarist, Backing Vocals). The Black Market was released July 15, 2014 on Interscope Records.
