Rise Against Reveal New Album Title, First Single + Release Date
It’s on! After spending the past month teasing fans with videos, Rise Against have now revealed the album title, release date and the name of the first single that will be hitting radio off their upcoming disc.
In a new teaser video, it’s revealed that the disc will be titled ‘The Black Market’ and it’s now on schedule for a July 15 release via Interscope Records. The band also revealed that the lead single off the disc is titled ‘I Don’t Want to Be Here Anymore,’ and the song will arrive at digital download and streaming sites next Tuesday (June 10).
While the full song hasn’t surfaced as of yet, a portion of the track plays out over the teaser announcement. For those interested, you can check out their post with the trailer below.
Frontman Tim McIlrath says of ‘The Black Market,’ “Rise Against has always been a political band, but also a personal band. We’ve always had songs that have a foot in both worlds. This album is a lot more introspective to me.” He cites ‘I Don’t Want to Be Here Anymore’ as a representation of the more introspective nature of the disc.
‘The Black Market’ follows 2011′s ‘Endgame,’ with the band releasing the rarities collection ‘Long Forgotten Songs’ in between the two discs. The band will return to the road this summer in support of the disc. They’ve already announced their participation in the three Riot Fest shows, and will also play the Made In America Festival, with other festival dates booked for early fall.
