Rise Against

Chicago's Rise Against began in 1999 when ex-88 Fingers Louie bassist Joe Principe tapped area vocalist Tim McIlrath for a new projectrooted in the sound and social vision of traditionalist hardcore. Joined by fellow 88 Fingers vet Dan Precision on guitar and, eventually,drummer Brandon Barnes, Rise Against signed to Fat Wreck and issued The Unraveling in 2001.

Chicago's Rise Against began in 1999 when ex-88 Fingers Louie bassist Joe Principe tapped area vocalist Tim McIlrath for a new projectrooted in the sound and social vision of traditionalist hardcore. Joined by fellow 88 Fingers vet Dan Precision on guitar and, eventually,drummer Brandon Barnes, Rise Against signed to Fat Wreck and issued The Unraveling in 2001. Precision left the band that same year tobe replaced by Todd Mohney. Extensive touring followed, leading to their sophomore outing, 2002's Revolutions Per Minute. After solidresponse from fans and critics alike, as well as a stint on the Warped Tour, Rise Against left the Fat Wreck fold for DreamWorks/Geffen. Bythis point, guitar duties were being handled by Chris Chasse (Reach the Sky). Rise Against made their major-label debut in August 2004with Siren Song of the Counter Culture. They toured steadily after the album's release, received plenty of solid press, and even saw CounterCulture crack the Billboard Top 200. In 2005, Rise Against appeared in the skateboarding film Lords of Dogtown, playing an old-school Calipunk band. (They performed a rousing version of Black Flag's "Nervous Breakdown" for the film's soundtrack.) Rise Against continued totour throughout that summer, including a spot at the U.K.'s Reading and Leeds festivals in August. Their fourth album, The Sufferer & theWitness, appeared in July 2006 and its debut at number ten on the Billboard Top 200 was their highest yet. The band spent the summertearing up Warped's main stage before hooking up with Thursday and Billy Talent that fall. Rise Against continued playing shows into 2007,but their extensive tour schedule eventually proved to be too much for Chasse, who bowed out that February. The band solidered on,enlisting Only Crime's Zach Blair to temporarily take his place. In 2008, Rise Against released Appeal to Reason, which marked a moremelodic shift for the band and was their most successfull album to date, reaching #3 on the Billboard chart. For their next album, the bandhit the studio with punk mainstay Bill Stevenson, who played with Black Flag, Descendents and All. Their sixth album, Endgame, wasreleased early in 2011. « hide
