Rise Against today shared a new acoustic version of 'Nowhere Generation,' featuring vocals by Meg Myers, alongside a new video. The song—a stripped back take on the original is the title track of Rise Against’s latest album.
“When we released the acoustic version of ‘Nowhere Generation,’ we found that it really connected with a lot of people,” says Tim McIlrath of Rise Against. “We heard from a lot of unique and beautiful voices, and we knew that we needed to add another beautiful, unique voice to this song. Meg was the perfect choice and we are thrilled with how it all turned out.”
“When Rise Against asked me to sing on ‘Nowhere Generation,’ I felt an instant connection to the song. There is a power and a purity about this song that is so healing and unifying,” explains Myers. “It’s the voice of a younger generation who feels unheard. I feel it is so important right now for our consciousness evolution, and for society to take a look around and ask ourselves, ‘who are we, what are we doing here, where are we going and why?’”
Rise Against will head out on a month-long U.S. tour next week in support of Nowhere Generation, joined by Descendents and The Menzingers, and beginning with a string of sold out shows in Cleveland, New York, and Asbury Park.
