American rockers Rise Against rock up in Sheffield next week – on the first date of their European tour.
The Chicago quartet are on tour in support of new album The Black Market, their seventh studio long-player, which reached number 13 in the UK.
Singer Tim McIlrath says: “We demanded more of ourselves on this record. It wasn’t ‘let’s do another record’, but more like ‘let’s create something. Let’s go into this and prove we still have what it takes to challenge ourselves. Let’s take our fans and our community down this road with us.”
Rise Against are at Sheffield’s O2 Academy on Monday. Support comes from fellow American rock bands Pennywise and Emily’s Army.
