, Staff

Rise Against have revealed plans for a tour of North American this spring with special guests Bad religion and Four Year Strong. The tour will make its way to Boston for a night at the House of Blues on Friday, April 29. Tickets will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $29.50 and $39.50.

The Chicago-based punk rockers will be touring in support of their forthcoming sixth studio album, Endgame, which is due to hit stores on March 15 via DGC/Interscope Records.  The album’s lead single “Help Is On The Way” was released last month and is currently #5 on the modern rock radio chart. The song, which is also streaming on the band’s Myspace, explores the devastation that fell upon New Orleans after Katrina and last year’s tragic BP oil disaster.

“It was only about six years ago we were celebrating our good fortune at being picked to open for the legendary Bad Religion,” said lead singer Tim McIlrath in a press release. “I would’ve claimed you were lying if you said we’d be taking them out in the future; we’re pretty stoked.”

Legendary punk rockers Bad Religion are touring behind their latest release, The Dissent of Man, their 15th album. Meanwhile, Worcester rockers Four Year Strong will be supporting their most recent release, Enemy of the World, which reached #40 on the Billboard charts last year.
