For the first time in five years, we're getting a new album from Rise Against. Nowhere Generation is due to be released June 4th this year. The band doesn't shy away from politics on the record. Frontman Tim McIlrath says of the title track:
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. 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.
