Endgame is set for release March 15 as the follow-up to Appeal to Reason. The album’s first single, “Help Is On The Way,” hit No.5 on the modern rock radio chart. The tune examines the devastation New Orleans has recently been through from Katrina to last year’s BP oil disaster.
Before hitting the road in the U.S., Rise Against will play a few shows in Brazil (Feb. 25-26) and Argentina (Feb. 27) followed by a round of Germany dates in March (March 22-23, March 25-27).
The U.S. tour kicks off April 5 in Las Vegas at The Joint @ Hard Rock Hotel/Casino. The trek wraps up May 13-14 with two nights at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom.
“It was only about six years ago we were celebrating our good fortune at being picked to open for the legendary Bad Religion,” Rise Against lead singer Tim McIlrath. “I would’ve claimed you were lying if you said we’d be taking them out in the future; we’re pretty stoked.”
