The run, produced by Live Nation, will include a show at Coney Island Amphitheatre in New York City (August 1), a concert with Fall Out Boy at Wrigley Field in the band's hometown of Chicago (September 8), and an evening at Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver (September 15). Special guests AFI and opener Anti-Flag will perform at all headline shows. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, March 30 at LiveNation.com. See below for itinerary. The band won acclaim for its hard-hitting 2017 performances in support of its eighth studio album, WOLVES. Illinois Entertainer said, "the return of Rise Against feels more timely than ever." Houston Press observed, "If any rock band could convince their fans to not bury their heads in the sand in 2017 America, it might just be Rise Against." WOLVES (Virgin Records) debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock albums charts. Lead single "The Violence" topped the Mediabase Active Rock chart and the follow-up track, "House On Fire," is currently in the Top 10 and climbing. Rise Against - comprising Tim McIlrath (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Joe Principe (bass), Zach Blair (lead guitar), and Brandon Barnes (drums) - recently wrapped up a tour of Australia and New Zealand and will embark on a European run in June.YouTube:https://www.youtube.com/user/RiseAgainstVEVOFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/riseagainstTwitter:https://twitter.com/riseagainstInstagram:https://www.instagram.com/riseagainst/Tumblr:http://riseagainst.tumblr.comWebsite:http://www.riseagainst.com AFI AFI is touring in support of AFI (The Blood Album)(Concord), which hit No. 1 on Billboard's Alternative and Hard Rock Albums Charts and No. 5 on The Billboard 200. The band revealed the album in stages: Stereogum premiered "Get Hurt" (which was also spotlighted on "Best of the Week with Zane Lowe" on Beats 1), Pitchfork debuted the "Snow Cats" video, Rolling Stone launched "White Offerings" and NME introduced "Aurelia." In between, AFI performed at KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas show, where they delivered what Billboard called "arguably the strongest set of the night." They tore through "Snow Cats" on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, kicked off their headlining tour of North America with a sold-out show at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, then wrapped it with two sold-out nights at The Wiltern in Los Angeles. Alternative Press and Q gave AFI (The Blood Album) 4 stars each, AV Club said it sounded like the band are "as fired up now as they were 25 years ago," People magazine made it a Pick of the Week, Kerrang called it a "serious contender" for the Best Albums of 2017 list, The 405 praised it as "their strongest album in a decade" and ABC News gave it 3.5 stars and described it as "a dynamic record that should please both old and new fans of the band."AFI (The Blood Album) is the follow-up to 2013's Burials, which hit Top 10 on The Billboard 200. Since the release of 1995's debut album Answer That and Stay Fashionable, AFI has written and recorded five top ten hit singles, hit No. 1 on The Billboard 200 (with the stunning Decemberunderground), garnered worldwide critical acclaim and amassed a fiercely loyal global following whose members number in the millions. Anti-Flag Music bestows a voice upon the voiceless. It provides a mouthpiece for the unheard to be heard. It amplifies the cries of the downtrodden in the face of oppression and tyranny. It's the last line of dissent.... "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism." - Howard Zinn Since unleashing their seminal 1996 debut Die for the Government, Anti-Flag has empowered and emboldened the listeners of two generations beset with a new millennium stricken by war, racial upheaval, and financial collapse. The Pittsburgh, PA quartet-Justin Sane [vocals], Chris#2 [bass, vocals], Chris Head [guitar, vocals], and Pat Thetic [drums]-has consistently embodied a timeless punk spirit over the course of nine influential offerings, including The Terror State, For Blood and Empire, and most recently, 2015's American Spring. The latter boasted appearances from icons such as Tom Morello and Tim Armstrong and yielded the anthem "Brandenburg Gate," which cracked 1.3 million Spotify streams and counting. They've incinerated stages on tour alongside Rage Against The Machine, Sick of It All, Billy Talent, The Offspring, Rancid, and more in addition to festivals ranging from Coachella to the Vans Warped Tour. A cultural institution, they have spoken out on behalf of movements such as Occupy Together, Greenpeace, Sea Shepherd, and Amnesty International between launching their own label A-F and ANTIFest. As the world changed again with the controversial 2016 presidential election, the time felt ripe for Anti-Flag's tenth and most definitive offering yet, American Fall [Spinefarm Records]. "There's a focus on politics right now for obvious reasons," says Chris#2. "When that happens, our band gets more attention. Being our tenth record, we wanted to make sure that we were true to ourselves. It had to sound like Anti-Flag. At the same time, London Calling is my favorite by The Clash because they took risks. Since they were in front of more eyes than ever, they didn't play it safe. We wanted to push the envelope so we had a reason to put out another record when everyone was watching." Writing back home in Pittsburgh, the signature sound naturally evolved with slower grooves, tighter songcraft, thicker guitars, and bigger melodies. It provided the perfect musical counterpoint to the incendiary and inflammatory subject matter. "Because we're living in very divisive and dark times, we wanted to deliver our message in a way that wasn't overbearing and oppressive to listeners," adds Justin. "Getting a little more melodic makes the pill easier to digest. It became more impactful and simple." "Any fool can make something complicated. It takes a genius to make it simple." - Woody Guthrie Kicking off 2017, the boys traded snowy Pittsburgh in January for sunny Southern California where they would co-produce American Fall with Good Charlotte's Benji Madden. His personal perspective proved indispensable in the studio. "He understands that we know how to do this, but he also added a fresh take," Chris#2 goes on. "It was cool to have him around on these songs, because many of them are structurally and sonically pretty catchy punk rock. We embraced the idea of writing singalongs and big hooks. We were all on a similar page going into this." "He had a great sense for feeling where something was heading and pushing it in that direction," adds Justin. "That was a really impressive skill that he brought to the process." Introducing American Fall, opener and first single "American Attraction" hinges on a hulking drum beat and hummable guitars before snapping into an explosive chant. It's quintessential Anti-Flag as far as the subject matter goes... "We were definitely interested in talking about the politics of distraction on that one," Justin exclaims. "The politics of distraction lead people to make choices that aren't in their best interest. They follow leaders who are just using them and don't care to actually do something positive for the country. When you live in a society that glorifies guns, drugs, and war, you become susceptible to those politics-while the individuals in charge are only worried about re-election. They don't care about you." "Sooner or later, the people of this country are going to find out the government doesn't give a fuck about them. Government doesn't care about you. All they are interested in, is keeping and expanding their own power." - George Carlin Elsewhere on the record, "The Criminals" gallops ahead at full speed driven by a performance soaked in blood, sweat, and tears and pure punk fury. The acoustic guitar and chant of "When The Wall Falls" gives way to a buoyant groove, and "Casualty" caps everything off with a fitting middle finger, proclaiming "Try to shut us down, but we won't be another casualty." Speaking directly to those in need, the lyrics to "Casualty" are accompanied by phone numbers for Trans Lifeline, Suicide Prevention, Domestic Violence, Crisis Text Line, and Trevor Project Lifeline. Moreover, the booklet includes essays, quotes, and writings of Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz, Peter Montgomery, Ryan Harvey, and more. American Fall heralds another era for Anti-Flag as their impact remains as palpable as ever. "We were on Warped Tour THIS summer," recalls Pat. "Three-to-five trans folks would come to the booth and say hello to us every day. These same marginalized kids were at the shows 20 years ago, but they were afraid to express themselves. The fact that they are NOW empowered to be who they really are is incredible...the fact that they know they are welcomed by our band and community is awesome, the same goes for so many others who are feeling alienated and they are receiving that message loud and clear." In the end, American Fall does what Anti-Flag has always done-it inspires change. "I want everybody to realize they're not alone," Chris#2 leaves off. "These conversations we're having are ones that others are having too. Four kids from Pittsburgh don't have all the answers, but we're looking out the same window and realizing that the color and the shape of things isn't what we want. However, we can band together with some likeminded individuals who feel the same way and turn it into the thing we want." "After all this, won't you give me a smile." - Joe Strummer Upcoming Events Similar Events Upcoming Events at Crystal Ballroom Bishop Briggs Sunday, April 29 Crystal Ballroom 80s Video Dance Attack Friday, May 4 Crystal Ballroom An Evening with Steven Wilson Wednesday, May 9 Crystal Ballroom Desert Daze Caravan II Thursday, May 10 Crystal Ballroom As The Crow Flies Sunday, May 13 Crystal Ballroom The Weepies Wednesday, May 16 Crystal Ballroom Ether Friday, May 18 Crystal Ballroom The Brian Jonestown Massacre Tuesday, May 22 Crystal Ballroom Similar Events at Crystal Ballroom Bishop Briggs Sunday, April 29 Crystal Ballroom 80s Video Dance Attack Friday, May 4 Crystal Ballroom An Evening with Steven Wilson Wednesday, May 9 Crystal Ballroom Desert Daze Caravan II Thursday, May 10 Crystal Ballroom As The Crow Flies Sunday, May 13 Crystal Ballroom The Weepies Wednesday, May 16 Crystal Ballroom Ether Friday, May 18 Crystal Ballroom The Brian Jonestown Massacre Tuesday, May 22 Crystal Ballroom Showbox Bishop Briggs Sunday, April 29 7 p.m. doors, 8:30 p.m show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom 80s Video Dance Attack Friday, May 4 9 p.m. 21 and over at Crystal Ballroom Emporium Presents An Evening with Steven Wilson Wednesday, May 9 7 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Desert Daze Caravan IIAriel Pink Thursday, May 10 6:30 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom True West Presents As The Crow FliesFeaturing Chris Robinson, Marcus King, Audley Freed, Andy Hess, Adam McDougal, Tony Leone Sunday, May 13 6:30 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show 21 and over at Crystal Ballroom True West Presents The Weepies**This show has been moved to The Aladdin Theater.** Wednesday, May 16 6:30 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Living Prism Presents Ether Friday, May 18 8:30 p.m. doors/show 21 and over at Crystal Ballroom The Brian Jonestown Massacre Tuesday, May 22 7 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom "Come As You Are" - 90s Dance Flashback Saturday, May 26 9 p.m. 21 and over at Crystal Ballroom Natalia Lafourcade Thursday, May 31 6:30 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom EELS Friday, June 1 6:30 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom True West Presents King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard Monday, June 4 7:30 p.m. doors, 9 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Monqui Presents Lord Huron SoldOut Tuesday, June 5 7 p.m. doors, 8:30 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Monqui Presents Lord Huron SoldOut Wednesday, June 6 7 p.m. doors, 8:30 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom New Found Glory Tuesday, June 12 6 p.m. doors, 7 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom True West Presents JOHN BUTLER TRIO+ Thursday, June 21 6:30 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom True West Presents JOHN BUTLER TRIO+ Friday, June 22 6:30 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom SiriusXM Presents Summerland TourEverclear Sunday, June 24 5:30 p.m. doors, 7 p.m. show 21 and over at Crystal Ballroom Modifed Style Portland Presents Fashion Show 2018 Thursday, June 28 6 p.m. doors, 7 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom The Damned Friday, July 6 7:30 p.m. doors, 9:00 p.m. show 21 and over at Crystal Ballroom Monqui Presents Car Seat Headrest Sunday, July 15 7 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Tastemaker Live, Sean Healy and Jam'n 107.5 Presents Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Friday, July 20 7:30 p.m. doors, 9 p.m. show 21 and over at Crystal Ballroom Emporium Presents Cody Johnson Thursday, July 26 7 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Streetlight Manifesto Friday, July 27 7 p.m. doors, 8:30 p.m show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom McMenamins and KINK-FM present Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls Thursday, September 6 6:30 p.m. doors, 7:30 p.m. show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom O.A.R.
