Rise Against: Discography of the Moment

Rise Against was started in 1999 in Chicago, Illinois. This punk rock band was originally called Transistor Revolt, changing their name to Rise Against after signing with Fat Wreck Chords.

My friend Dave did a review of their album Endgame on his website here.

  1. I think that Zach Blair has added a lot to this band. He is a tremendous guitar player and a super nice guy.
