Liljekvist stated:
Dear friends and fans,

bullshit. I just cannot combine job, family and commit 100% to Katatonia. Times for musicians are rough and i’ve decided to concentrate on my family and get a normal job that gets the bills

Rise Against teases new album 66 replies

Rise Against has posted a short 27 second video on their Facebook page to tease a new album. The tease is a quick chronology of their past albums, with a short clip at the end indicating a new album will be "coming soon" in 2014.

At the end of 2013 Rise Against took some time off following some lengthy touring to recoup, and work on new material. Back in December, Tim McIlrath was quoted as saying, "It's been a good breather, but now I can't wait turn up some amps and scream." This could indicate a return to a heavier sound that was more prominent in their early material. That is only speculation though.
