About Rise Against
Chicago's Rise Against began in 1999 when ex-88 Fingers Louie bassist Joe Principe tapped area vocalist Tim McIlrath for a new project rooted in the sound and social vision of traditional hardcore. Joined by fellow 88 Fingers vet Dan Precision on guitar and, eventually, drummer Brandon Barnes, Rise Against issued The Unraveling in 2001. Precision left the band that same year to be replaced by Todd Mohney.

Extensive touring followed, leading to their sophomore outing, 2002's Revolutions Per Minute. After a solid response from fans and critics alike, as well as a stint on the Warped Tour, Rise Against left the Fat Wreck fold for DreamWorks/Geffen. Rise Against made their major-label debut in August 2004 with Siren Song of the Counter Culture. They toured steadily after the album's release, received plenty of solid press, and even saw “Counter Culture” crack the Billboard Top 200.

Their fourth album, The Sufferer & the Witness, appeared in July 2006. Rise Against continued playing shows into 2007, but their extensive tour schedule eventually proved to be too much for Chasse, who bowed out that February. The band soldiered on, enlisting Zach Blair to temporarily take his place. In 2008, Rise Against released Appeal to Reason, which marked a more melodic shift for the band and was their most successful album to date, reaching number three on the Billboard chart.

For their next album, the band hit the studio with punk mainstay Bill Stevenson. Their sixth album, Endgame, was released early in 2011. In 2013, the band delivered Long Forgotten Songs, a collection of B-sides and covers that helped whet fans' appetites for their seventh studio album, The Black Market, which followed in 2014.
