Rise Against Surprise Release New EP “Nowhere Generation II”, Premiere “Last Man Standing” Video

Rise Against have digitally released a new EP titled “Nowhere Generation II.” The effort, which will also be available on cassette on July 15 and on vinyl on October 28, features the following tracks: “The Answer,” “Last Man Standing,” “This Time It’s Personal,” “Pain Mgmt,” and “Holding Patterns.” You can find an official video for “Last Man Standing” below:

Director Ryan Valdez said the following about the new video:

“‘Last Man Standing’ was a way of expressing some frustration with our world in regards to exploitation, public alienation and human inequality. As you see in the video, we are fed through this race of survival. Only to be taken down, regardless of our success or efforts. Almost as if the game was rigged, designed to set us up for failure.”

Frontman Tim McIlrath added:

“I think of Rise Against as dystopian art. Like any good dystopian art endeavor, you’re singing about the world and what it might be like if we keep going down the road we’re going down. It’s the inevitable conclusion of what would happen if we keep making the same decisions. That’s what dystopian art is designed to do, to make you realize that and inspire you to make some changes. ‘Last Man Standing’ is looking down that road and trying to paint a picture of what it looks like.”
