Rise Against Confirms They Are Working on New Music
It looks like album number nine is on the way...when life gets a little more normal. Kerrang! reported that Tim McIlrath has confirmed Rise Against has new music, so there's a chance you could see the guys around Fort Collins.
Although the band's last album Wolves (2017) was not recorded at Fort Collins' Blasting Room, the band has a decades-running relationship with the recording studio. Last November, the band was in town to perform at the studio's 25th anniversary show at Washington's FoCo.
'We have new music, we have it all – this isn’t the end, this is just a new beginning,' McIlrath said on #OffstagewithDWP on July 1.

Karrang! said that the band's singer also assured fans that they'll see more from Rise Against on the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic.
'I just want to let our fans know that we’re not going anywhere. When the lights go back on you’re gonna see us, and we’re gonna be playing shows, and getting together with you guys.' - Tim McIlrath, Kerrang!

When we spoke with Rise Against's Zach Blair a couple years back, he joked that he's in Fort Collins 'more than people that live there,' and explained the reason the band didn't record the last studio album Wolves in Fort Collins was because of scheduling. We'll have to wait and see, but in the meantime, we're glad to have new music to look forward to. You can hear more from #OffstagewithDWP below.
