Rise Against Announces Tour Support Acts and New Dates 

For the multi-Gold and Platinum punk rockers Rise Against, this is what rock’n’roll is all about: Celebrating an event-packed album release day with a throng of fans in the band’s Chicago hometown, and the announcement of support artists and additional dates for the band’s “Nowhere Generation U.S. Summer Tour.” From a 50-person in-store in June, to a 9000 person amphitheater in late August, Rise Against will wrap this tour on the shores of Lake Michigan in the band’s hometown of Chicago.
Joining Rise Against on this summer’s now 20-stop run will be direct support Descendents, one of the L.A. south coast’s most outspoken major players in the hardcore punk scene, and Philadelphia’s The Menzingers, whose strength as rough-and-tumble storytellers have turned out songs equally rooted in frenetic energy and lifelike detail.  For ticket purchasing details, go to RiseAgainst.com
