Rise Against started off 2012 on the road and they haven’t stopped since. We recently reported that the band will be part of this year’s Riot Fest in Chicago, and now Rise Against have announced dates for a fall 2012 North American tour.
Riot Fest is getting bigger by the year. The Chicago based festival has grown to the point where it can no longer be held by just clubs, and the festival's organizers will incorporate a full outdoor music event and carnival for the first time this year. In addition, Loudwire is giving away a pair of tickets to see the festival (see below for details).
Rise Against are well-known for the politically infused messages within their music. Having developed their own sound combining hardcore punk with a pop sensibility, the underlying essence of Rise Against's social and political activism-through-sound has resonated with millions of fans worldwide.
Rise Against are out on the road with A Day To Remember and the Menzingers on the first leg of a U.S. tour. This initial leg wraps up next week but will be followed by a second leg kicking off in mid-April. Last night the show rolled into the Tsongas Center in Lowell, Mass., for a night full of music, message and moshing.
We recently reported dates for the first leg of the 2012 tour featuring A Day to Remember and Rise Against, with openers the Menzingers. Dates for the second leg of the North American trek have now been announced, with Title Fight taking over for the Menzingers in the opening slot.
As we reported earlier, the West Memphis Three -- three men who served 18 years in prison for the murder of three boys -- were freed today (Aug. 19) after years of support from various music artists who felt they were wrongly convicted.
