Chicago punks Rise Against have dropped a music bomb today. It’s a new video for the in-your-face, politically charged track ‘Megaphone’. As you might imagine, the lyrics of the song encourage to pick up the megaphone and speak your mind, because if not you, who?
Stick to your guns, they fail to protect
I’ve seen this before and we died in the end…
Clear your god damn throat
You are the megaphone
Featured on the deluxe edition of Wolves album, the song and its visuals are rough and uncompromising. Guitar-crazy, drum-clattering, vocally fierce track got a proper video realization, which is captivating to watch.
If you’re ready for this loud sonic and visual experience, give it a look:
But that’s not all the news from Rise Against’s forefront. The band is preparing The Ghost Note Symphonies, Vol 1, for release. The group describe it as “a collection of reimagined songs from our discography. You’ll find the songs stripped down, with alternate instrumentation, unique orchestration, and a surprise or two” (via Kerrang).
Be sure to check out the first song from The Ghost Note Symphonies, Vol 1 – a reimagined version of ‘House On Fire’ – in the Spotify player below.
