Rise Against at Download Festival, Paramatta Park. 9th March 2019
For 18 years, Rise Against has kept their moral compass steady, using their international punk platform to speak out for social justice. After two successful underground releases, 2001’s ‘The Unraveling’ and 2003’s ‘Revolutions per Minute’, the activist, straight edge, vegetarians catapulted into the mainstream with 2004’s ‘Siren Song of the Counter Culture’ and have never looked back!
Their 8th studio LP, 2017’s ‘Wolves’, like all Rise Against records, tackles political struggles alongside personal ones, creating songs as complex as their fans, and is about recognizing the power within all of us; it’s a primal call for the prey to become the hunters, delivered in their signature mix of hardcore punk and melodic hardcore.
