Los Angeles, CA – October 12, 2018 – Since forming in Chicago in 1999, Rise Against has inspired generations of punk and rock fans with its firey and anthemic brand of melodic hardcore punk. Using their international platform to speak out for social justice, Rise Against’s rousing lyrics address progressive political issues like economic injustice, animal rights and homophobia. The band’s music and message remains as vital as ever.
On November 30, Rise Against’s body of work will be collected in the career-spanning self-titled vinyl box set Rise Against via Interscope/UMe. The comprehensive collection will feature 180-gram black vinyl pressings of all eight of Rise Against’s studio albums, including their three Gold-certified albums Siren Song of the Counter Culture (2004), The Sufferer & the Witness (2006), and Appeal to Reason (2008). In addition, a limited edition 180-gram clear vinyl version will be sold at RiseAgainst.com. Both versions include a unique book featuring exclusive photos and an oral history made up of interviews from the band detailing their rise from the fertile Chicago punk underground to the international stage, offering insights into their revered discography.

“Eighteen years and eight records later, the story of Rise Against is best told with the music,” says frontman Tim McIlrath. “Each song on each record was a handcrafted stepping stone that took us far beyond any expectations we ever had and surpassed any goal we ever set. These albums connected with, and introduced us to, a die-hard fanbase we feel unworthy of. Whether it was Blasting Room production on most of these albums or the Shepard Fairey artwork for Siren Song Of The Counterculture, the devil is in the details. Each record here tells our story and represents a snapshot of where we were and who we were at the time, maybe it does the same for you.”
