Rise Against has announced a new album called Nowhere Generation. The band also dropped a “Nowhere Generation” music video yesterday (March 18th). Frontman Tim McIlrath said in a statement, “Today there is the promise of the American Dream, and then there is the reality of the American Dream. America's 'historical norm' that the next generation will be better off than the one that came before has been diminished by an era of mass social, economic, and political instability and a sell-out of the Middle Class. “
He continued, “The brass ring that was promised by hard work and dedication no longer exists for everyone. When the privileged climb the ladder of success and then burn it from the top, disruption becomes the only answer.”
The album — which is their first effort in four years, is due out on June 4th.
