Rise Against - Help Is On The Way
Rise Against was in Stockholm, Annexet yesterday.
They played for 3.700 jumping and singing people.
One could really see that the group loved to play for this audience,
they gave it all and a bit more.
In the end Tim McIlrath, the singer, said "we just released an album and all that, but fuck it"....and then they played "Hero" Haha I loved that kinda attitude :D
They released that album the 15 of March this year its called "Endgame"
Pretty good album if u like Rise Against.
All of the group's members are vegetarians and active supporters of PETA, an animal rights organization. Their video for the single "Ready to Fall" contains footage of factory farming, rodeos, and sport hunting, as well as deforestation, melting ice caps, and forest fires.
The group has called the video the most important video they have ever made. The Director's Cut of the video was first made available to a PETA website. In 2009, the band was voted Best Animal-Friendly Band by PETA. In addition to being vegetarians, all the members of Rise Against, except drummer Brandon Barnes, are straight edge; that is, they abstain from consuming alcohol or using recreational drugs.
This is entirely fucking awesome, Love it!!!
