EDITORS’ NOTES

Rise Against have been one of hardcore’s most dissenting voices for nearly two decades and, after 2014’s introspective The Black Market, 2017’s political landscape has re-fired their righteous anger. They shape their hammering riffs and wind-tunnel choruses around hot-button topics including climate change (“Parts Per Million”), apathy (“B******t”), and the inevitability—or otherwise—of war (“The Violence”). The Chicago band have never sought to disentangle the personal from the political though, and relationship dramas are played out on “Politics of Love” and “House on Fire.”
