Interview: Rise Against on new album, military

Chicago punks Rise Against released their album Endgame yesterday. Bassist Joe Principe sat down recently to talk about their new music, politics and speaking out:

“Punk rock by nature is a response to the current state of the government and things like that. For me, growing up, I was never overly political. I was more in it for whatever I felt was wrong in my life. I felt like there was a place for me in punk rock and it was OK to raise my voice and say, ‘Wait a minute. I don’t have to put up with this. This is kind of fucked up.’ I think you can apply that to politics and to socially responsible situations like the environment.”
