Rise Against Video Shoot for “The Violence” Labelled Anti Government, Permit Revoked

Preparing for their upcoming release of Wolves, Rise Against were trying to shoot a music video for the first track “The Violence”. The song is about whether violence is an inevitability of the human condition or not, and they attempted to make the video portray that. You can read about their plans in a lengthy Facebook post attached below, but it’s safe to say that those plans probably won’t come to fruition after the permit for shooting has been pulled.

Rise Against will be releasing their new album Wolves on June 9th and then immediately hit the road alongside Deftones. They will be making their way through Tampa on June 22nd!
