RISE AGAINST announce Electric ballroom gig!

RISE AGAINST announce Electric Ballroom show in London – March 16th
Brand new album ‘END GAME’ on March 14th. Single ‘HELP IS ON THE WAY’ out now!

RISE AGAINST have today announced a London headline date at Camden’s Electric Ballroom, on March 14th, with tickets on sale from Jan 28th. The band also released their new single ‘Help Is On The Way’ today. The song is the first to be released from their upcoming sixth studio album, Endgame, which is due out March 14th through Geffen Records. The single will also be featured in the upcoming EA video game Shift 2: Unleashed. The song is available at digital retailers, including iTunes.

The single, which just debuted in the states on the modern rock charts at #18, and has already received Radio 1 and XFM Rock Show plays (and has been added to Kerrang Radio play-lists) explores the devastation that fell upon New Orleans after Katrina and last year’s tragic BP oil disaster. Lead-singer Tim McIlrath was inspired to write the song after spending time in the city while the band was on break from touring.

McIlrath recently revealed his thoughts and inspiration to SPIN.com. “I was down in those wetlands…talking about how important they were and the damage that was being inflicted on them. And this was right before the oil spill! I could almost visualize a tear coming out of that guy’s eye, like, ‘Are you kidding me? Kicking us while we’re down?”

‘Help Is On The Way’ is now streaming at: www.myspace.com/riseagainst
