Rise Against recently released a new music video for the song “Pain MGMT” from their recent EP, Nowhere Generation II.
Directed by activist artist collective Indecline, the video focuses on the ongoing wave of banning books.
“Of the many unthinkable battles we find ourselves forced into by those who seem hellbent on paralyzing an educated and inspired populace, the battle for knowledge seems more relevant today than it ever has,” explains Indecline. “From our classrooms to our collectives, knowledge is the only weapon that can liberate a people without violence.”
The group adds, “In the face of the ever-changing brands of fascism and control, all resources and energy must be exhausted to ensure everyone has access to their own mental and spiritual liberation.”
Rise Against singer/guitarist Tim McIlrath said, “‘Pain Mgmt’ is one of my favorite songs off II, and Indecline went way above and beyond creating this video that manages to pack so much narrative, suspense, and meaning into one song.”
Rise Against dropped Nowhere Generation II via Loma Vista Recordings, on the first anniversary of the band’s chart-topping, critically acclaimed ninth album Nowhere Generation. The EP was produced by Bill Stevenson.
