Rise Against announce live EP w/ Misfits & CCR covers (stream a track)18 Essential Early 2000s Melodic Punk & Hardcore Albums

Earlier this year, Rise Against released their ninth album Nowhere Generation (get it on limited picture disc), and now they've announced the accompanying Nowhere Sessions EP, which features live recordings of three songs from Nowhere Generation, fan fave "Savior" (from 2008's Appeal to Reason), and covers of the Misfits' "Hybrid Moments" and Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son."

"Our songs take on so many different patinas when we play them live or strip them down," frontman Tim McIlrath says. "In some ways, every time we play it is different. It was fun to document one of those sessions and we’re excited to share it with the world."

The first single is "Talking To Ourselves," and about that one, Tim adds: "'Talking To Ourselves' is about watching yourself and the people around you fall into complacency. Despite your best efforts to get people’s attention, it feels like no one is listening. Sometimes we feel the urge to do something crazy, to disturb the peace, to jostle the world around us awake. Our actions might be seen as out of the ordinary, but they are acts of desperation when all else failed." Stream it and check out the full tracklist below.
