Music Feeds has teamed up with Rise Against to premiere their new music video for Tragedy + Time, the latest single pulled from the Chicago hardcore band’s seventh studio album The Black Market, released earlier this year.
The polished clip sees Rise Against perform Tragedy + Time amid flashing lights against a model city skyline. And if that naked lady seems awfully familiar, you might want to check the cover of The Black Market.
Although the track itself is firmly rooted in pop melody, it doesn’t dull the edge and effectiveness of Tragedy + Time, or its message which implores anyone going through hardship to stay the course and keep hope that things will work out.
“As a writer I’ve always felt some responsibility to not just acknowledge the sadness of the human condition but to help people find a way out,” says frontman Tim McIlrath. “That’s where the whole Black Market idea came from.”
The Black Market was produced by frequent collaborators Jason Livermore and Tim McIlrath. Rise Against will tour Australia next year, opening for the Foo Fighters on their huge run of stadium dates.
