Transcript of Rise Against

What is rise against?
Rise Against is a punk rock band that was formed in 1999 in Chicago. The band currently has 4 members. They are from PETA and they sometimes sing songs for animal rights. They also sing against the USA government, too.
first years of the band
After the bands, '88 Fingers Louie' and 'Baxter', had been abolished, Tim McIlrath and Joe Principe introduced the band in 1999
At first, the name of the band was ''Transistor Revolt'' They didn't perform anything live under this name, yet they released an amateur EP which is called as ''Transistor Revolt'' in 2000.
One year later, new members joined to band and the task-sharing was like this:
Tim McIlrath – Lead vocal
Mr. Precision – Guitar
Joe Principe – Bass guitar, backing vocal
Brandon Barnes – Drums, percussion

The Unraveling
Although Transistor Revolt was very hobbyist EP,
Fat Wreck Chords, which is a punk rock record label studio, wanted to make an album with Rise Against
As a result, Rise Against released their first album, The Unraveling, in 2001 and the album was distributed by Fat Wreck Chords. As it was a really good album the critics liked the album. Their average point was 8 out of 10. Accordingly, the album made them a little bit famous and the studio decided to continue with them.
The album has 18 songs and some of these songs are from their EP.
Revolutions per Minute
''Revolutions Per Minute'' is their second album which was released in 2003 and was distributed by the same studio.
The album has two singles and a cover song from Journey(Anyway you want it)
Their first album was made for only fun but this album is entirely socio-political. Some of the songs are against the USA government.
The album has 14 songs, yet one of them is hidden under the name ''Data'' and the critics gave them 9.5 points out of 10.
Due to their success, they started to join in some festivals.
Siren Song of the Counter Culture
In my opinion, this is their one of the most successful albums, thanks to their singles Swing Life Away and Give it All.
The album was average and reached #12 on billboard.
Unlike the other albums, this album was distributed by Geffen that is a really famous label.
The album that was released in 2004 has 12 songs and again most of the songs are about political things and social life.
Tim McIlrath
Timothy James McIlrath was born in November 3, 1978.
As you know he is the lead singer and the rhythm guitarist of Rise Against. Before Rise Against, he had worked for Baxter for 4 years and Alma Angelus for only a few months.
He has heterochromia which means one of his eyes is green and another one is blue.
McIlrath is known to support animal rights and actively promotes PETA with his band
Currently, he is living in a small house with her wife and daughter. He has really a humble life.

Firstly, I met them in NFS: Underground 2. Their ''Give it All'' song was appearing on the screen whenever I was playing it. But then, I stopped playing Underground 2, so I forgot about Rise Against
But then, In 2010 I heard the familiar sound again. This time, they were playing for The Sims 3: Ambitions' trailer. Then I searched about the band and started listening them gradually.
But I forgot about them again. But thanks to my fate, I heard their song in a NFS game too. And since then, I have been listening them nonstop.
