Celebrating the one-year anniversary ninth album, Nowhere Generation, melodic punk infused rockers RISE AGAINST return with the surprise release of a new EP, Nowhere Generation II, via Loma Vista Recordings. Following the recent release of their new single, the band just shared the full stream of their new EP and their new music video for “Last Man Standing”.
The five song collection was written and recorded alongside Nowhere Generation and features production by Bill Stevenson (The Descendents, Black Flag).
Speaking on the new EP, Rise Against frontman Tim McIlrath commented: “We’d written 16 songs for this album and then we decided to break them apart. Not only could the music get lost, but the message could get lost in asking people to listen to this all at once. I think this is, hopefully, a more effective way to give these issues the platform and the spotlight that they rightly deserve. We wanted to hold onto these and give them to our fans when we feel like they’ve had time to properly digest this first batch, so these songs were the aces up our sleeves.”
