Rise Against have announced their new album, Nowhere Generation, out June 4th via Loma Vista. The upcoming release marks their first new album in four years.
A press release states the record is partly inspired by the band members’ young children and their fans. The album “points a finger at big business and politics for stacking the social and economical deck against Millennials’, Gen Y’s, and Gen Z’s pursuit of The American Dream.”
Frontman Tim McIlrath explained, “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 added, “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.”
To preview the album, the band have shared the title track along with its stark, black and white video. Watch it below.
Pre-orders for Nowhere Generation can be found here. The album will be released on a variety of formats, including a soft-pack CD, limited-edition vinyl picture disc, and a deluxe vinyl edition including die-cut gatefold artwork and a 12-page booklet.
Rise Against released their last album, Wolves, in 2017.
