RISE AGAINST

[photogallerylink id=103759]One-Line Bio: Socially-minded hardcore punk band from Chicago reach underground and mainstream success by creating a fresh slant on confrontational, globally-conscious punk lyrics, representing the sentiments of a dissenting counterculture, and paying sonic homage to fellow Weenie Roast 2011 bands like[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Face to Face[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bad Religion[/lastfm].

Current Band Members: Tim McIlrath (lead vocals, rhythm guitar and lead guitar), Joe Principe (bass guitar, backing vocals), Brandon Barnes (drums, percussion), Zach Blair (lead guitar, backing vocals)

Breakout Single: “Swing Life Away”

Why They’re Awesome: Year after year, album after album, Rise Against continuously and assertively speak for all the disenfranchised youth longing for social change with their politically-charged music.

Current Single: “Help Is On The Way”
