Rise Against today announced dates and cities for their fall headlining tour which coincides with the release of their new album, Appeal To Reason, to be released on October 7th. The Live Nation produced tour will kick off on October 2nd in Cleveland, OH at the Time Warner Cable Amphitheater with supporting acts Alkaline Trio, Thrice and The Gaslight Anthem. Tickets for the Rise Against tour go on sale nationally beginning Friday, August 8th and are available at www.livenation.com with more information available at www.riseagainst.com and www.myspace.com/riseagainst. Presale tickets are available on August 6 at www.livenation.com.

The tour will utilize Live Nation’s national network of local promoters to produce appearances at a mix of clubs and theaters in 31 markets across the country.

For their fifth studio album, Appeal To Reason, the band teamed up with Bill Stevenson (Black Flag, Descendants) and Jason Livermore to record at the Blasting Room in Ft. Collins, CO– the same production team and studio used for “The Sufferer & the Witness” and “Revolutions Per Minute.”

Rise Against are vocalist Tim McIlrath, bassist Joe Principe, drummer Brandon Barnes and guitarist Zach Blair. In spring 2001, the band released their debut CD The Unraveling on Fat Wreck Chords. After two years of solid touring, Rise Against recorded Revolutions Per Minute (2002), followed by Siren Song Of The Counter Culture produced by Gggarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Melvins, Sick Of It All). The Sufferer & the Witness was released in 2006 and debuted at #10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart
