Chicago outfit Rise Against may have just teased an upcoming new album, after sending fans to a mysterious new website which features the date “4/20” — that’s 20th April, which is only A FEW DAYS AWAY.
Emailing fans and taking to social media today, Rise Against posted the quote, “It never troubles the wolf how many the sheep may be,” before linking punters to a new section of their website, riseagainst.com/secret.
The secret area, which can be accessed using the password “wolves”, appears to show a cryptic tracklist and run-times for 11 possible songs. Here’s the full thing for you to decrypt:

Rise Against released their latest album The Black Market in 2014, and went on to play an Australian headline tour in December 2015. If the band are gearing up to release a new album on “4/20”, we could well be in for another Aussie tour sometime soon.
