Biography

Chicago, United States (1999 – present)

Rise Against are a / band from Chicago, Illinois. Formed in 1999, and originally performing under the name Transistor Revolt, they released a self-produced demo entitled Transistor Revolt in 2000, a year before signing with Fat Wreck Chords to release their first two albums, The Unraveling in 2001, and Revolutions Per Minute in 2003. They later switched to Dreamworks Records and recorded their album Siren Song of the Counter Culture. However, Universal Music Group took over Dreamworks Records and Rise Against finally found themselves on Geffen Records, a Universal Music Group subsidiary, releasing Siren Song of the Counter Culture in August 2004. A re-issued version of The Unraveling was released on August 23, 2005 through Fat Wreck Chords. They released their 4th studio album entitled “The Sufferer and The Witness” on July 4th 2006.

Rise Against’s original lineup consisted of Tim McIlrath (vocals and guitar), Joe Principe (bass and vocals, formerly from 88-Fingers Louie), Brandon Barnes (drums), and Mr.Precision (guitar and vocals), and recorded its debut album with renowned punk producer Mass Giorgini. Mr. Precision left the band in 2001 and was replaced by Todd Mohney, the guitarist of McIlrath’s side project The Killing Tree. Shortly after the band signed with Geffen, Mohney left and was replaced by Chris Chasse.

    I'm disappointed with the new album. There are some good moments, but on the whole, if I were to rank their albums, The Black Market is at the bottom

    I love the disparate comments that decorate this shoutbox. Personally, I absolutely love The Black Market, but then again, I just recently got into them. Doesn't make me less of a fan; I just realize that there's more I need to listen to from this band. And that starts now.

    Methadone is my favorite off the new album. I still can't decide if I like it more than Endgame. I still think TS&TW is my favorite album, but I think that's safe to say for most fans.

    I like the new album, the Endgame way continues, great rock album with some punk and blues-rock influences. The Eco-Terrorist in Me is damn beast. I think Zero Visibility is my favourite.
