About Rise Against
The multi-Gold and Platinum Rise Against - rhythm guitarist/vocalist Tim McIlrath, bassist Joe Principe, guitarist Zach Blair and drummer Brandon Barnes - is known for its explosive live shows, and its outspoken, socially-conscious lyrics that speak to the mood of our times: the environment, economic injustice, forced displacement, political corruption, voter registration, animal rights, and interpersonal relationships, all delivered with big, chunky riffs and melodic post-grunge hooks. Rise Against has amassed five top 10 albums on Billboard's Top 200 chart, six top ten singles on its Hot 100 chart, and some 3.5-billion streams worldwide. The UK’s Kerrang! cited them as “one of the most important punk bands on the planet."
