Los Angeles, California (March 26, 2018) – Rise Against will kick off their extensive North American Mourning In Amerika Tour with a headline performance at ’77 Montréal punk festival on July 27. 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, WOLVESIllinois 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.
