The Tim McIlrath-led band will play five shows across Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane next year, occupying some of their biggest venues to date.
Californian outfit SWMRS will be supporting Rise Against at each of the shows. Check out all the tour dates, below.
By the time Rise Against touch down in the country next year, it’ll be just over two years since they last toured Australia and they’ll have their eighth album Wolves in tow.
The record was recorded in Nashville with producer Nick Raskulinecz who has also worked with Foo Fighters and Alice In Chains.
“In many ways, a Rise Against show is a safe space for our fans,” says McIlrath.
“But I realised… I want to create dangerous spaces where misogyny can’t exist, where xenophobia can’t exist. I want to create spaces where those sentiments don’t have any air, and they suffocate: where those ideas die.
“Wolves isn’t about creating a safe space, it’s about creating a space that’s dangerous for injustice.”
