    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Straight-edge punk-rock band Rise Against is embarking on a six-week North American headline tour, whick kicks off in Denver. Among the 27 cities, Vancouver on November 16 marks the only Canadian show.

      With a rich history spanning 25 years, Rise Against is a band that has always been at the forefront of punk rock. The band’s upcoming performance in Vancouver is a celebration of its entire catalogue, featuring songs from its most recent album Nowhere Generation—which debuted at number one on Billboard rock charts in 2021—and its predecessor Wolves, a controversial album created in response to the election of Donald Trump in 2017. The band's outspokenness on a range of topics including political injustice, social commentary, and environmentalism has always been a defining characteristic.

      “We can’t wait to head out this fall with some old friends and new friends,” the band shares in a release. “Since we’ll be playing some venues we haven’t played in a while, we thought we'd also dust off some songs we haven’t played in some time.”
