Rise Against: Endgame 


2011

Endgame is an album about looking at the world around us, asking what is wrong, and making changes. The album tackles homophobia, equality, and a little bit of corruption and shows our world at a sort of tipping point. The first song on the album, “Archatects” sets up this concept of a need for looking at our problems, facing them head on, and making positive changes. The sound of these songs continues the bands evolution into a more polished, and well rounded, full sound. I think this is a reason people tend to think “punk bands sell out” but I say no… Punk can sound really clean and well put together, what matters is within the contents of the songs and this album is punk to it’s core!
