Rise Against Share New Acoustic Version Of Their Rock Hit “Nowhere Generation”

Rise Against today shared a new acoustic version of their soaring, impassioned rock hit “Nowhere Generation,” featuring vocals by Meg Myers, alongside a new video. The song—a stripped back take of the punchy original that has maintained its chart position at #2 at Rock for three weeks in a row and rose this week to #8 at Alternative radio—is the title track of Rise Against’s latest album, which debuted at the top of multiple Billboard charts with its first week sales (#1 on Rock, #3 on Top Current Albums, #3 on Vinyl, and the Top 40 of the Top 200). “When we released the acoustic version of ‘Nowhere Generation,’ we found that it really connected with a lot of people,” says Tim McIlrath of Rise Against. “We heard from a lot of unique and beautiful voices, and we knew that we needed to add another beautiful, unique voice to this song. Meg was the perfect choice and we are thrilled with how it all turned out.”

“When Rise Against asked me to sing on ‘Nowhere Generation,’ I felt an instant connection to the song. There is a power and a purity about this song that is so healing and unifying,” explains Myers. “It’s the voice of a younger generation who feels unheard. I feel it is so important right now for our consciousness evolution, and for society to take a look around and ask ourselves, ‘who are we, what are we doing here, where are we going and why?’”

Rise Against will head out on a month-long U.S. tour next week in support of Nowhere Generation, joined by Descendents and The Menzingers, and beginning with a string of sold out shows in Cleveland, New York, and Asbury Park.
