Rise Against premiere demo of “Like the Angel”

This year means ten years of Rise Against‘s “Revolutions Per Minute;” and to commemorate, Fat Wreck Chords has plans to re-release their breakout second and dub it “RPM 10.”

The re-issue will include expanded packaging and 10 bonus demos that were recorded during the band’s sessions with Jason Livermore and Bill Stevenson of the Descendents.

The band has posted a demo of their track “Like the Angel.”

Here’s what Rise Against frontman Tim McIlrath had to say,

We have always been more than just a political punk band. While politics play an unapologetic role in what we do, they do not consume our entire artistic output. ‘Like the Angel’ is an early example of the kind of songs that found their ways onto all of our records, and how we’ve always had one foot in politics and one foot in the personal. We loved heavy music but also songs that had a poppy or hooky side to them.
