Rise Against have one helluva day lined up on Friday, June 4th, and they’re taking over Consequence’s Instagram to chronicle the celebratory events.
The day marks the release of the melodic hardcore outfit’s ninth album, Nowhere Generation, which is big enough news in its own right. What’s even cooler is that the band is getting the ultimate honor of having June 4th proclaimed “Rise Against Day” in the city of Chicago by Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
To celebrate both occasions, Rise Against are making an in-store appearance at Reckless Records, where frontman Tim McIlrath will perform an acoustic set for 50 lucky fans, and the entire band will sign copies of the new album for everyone in attendance.
Follow along on Consequence‘s Instagram Story starting Friday (June 4th) at 10:00 a.m. CT / 11:00 a.m. ET as we hand the keys (or password, rather) over to Rise Against so you can follow along as the band celebrates its big day.
