Yesterday, RISE AGAINST frontman Tim McIlrath told Rolling Stone that after two years of touring relentlessly in support of their last album “Endgame”, they will go on hiatus before they start work on a follow-up to that record.
We’re kind of focusing on recharging our batteries right now. We’ve been a band for 12 years. We’ve been hitting it hard and looking at this band like a marathon, not a sprint. We realize we need to invest time into our music and our songs, as well as invest time into ourselves, our lives, so I think for the next few months that’s what we’ll be doing – getting away from it so we get a better perspective on what we want to do and what we want to accomplish when we sit down to write the next record.
