Rise Against Announce ‘Wolves’ Album, Release New Track ‘The Violence’

Subscribe to Classic Rock Q107 on

Rise Against are back with another a punk-rock anthem, “The Violence.” The cut is Rise Against’s first song released from their upcoming eighth studio album, Wolves.

People around the world are wondering about the state of punk rock in the Trump era. Will it gain massive amounts of support and traction like it did in the Bush years? We’ll see how it all unfolds with Rise Against being one of the first prominent punk acts to release new material in 2017.

Rise Against sound just like themselves with “The Violence,” as frontman Tim McIlrath ramps up his distinctive vocal style over buzzing guitars and marching drum beats. The entirety of Wolves was recorded in Nashville, Tenn., which affected the outcome of their new record.

“Living in Nashville drove home that we can’t just focus on our differences,” says McIlrath. “If we can stop and talk to each other, face to face, we might realize our common ground. We are all wolves in the same pack, circling at the gates.”

Along with a June 9 album release via Virgin Records, Rise Against have also announced a pair of House of Vans shows. The band will rock Chicago on April 21 and Brooklyn on April 24 before heading out on tour with Deftones and Thrice this summer.
