“What will continue to be,
Is what we allow…”
There is a reason that Rise Against are the most played band on my Spotify. Not only are the band talented musicians but they use their platform to speak out about social issues. Their latest release from their forthcoming album ‘Nowhere Generation’ which is out June 4th. ‘The Numbers’ conveys a strong message lyrically and visually around making a stand against the system, it’s time to start questioning and fighting back. Actually show that we give a Fuck. With that comes a return to the more old school sound from the band which is damn good to hear.
The visual for The Numbers was conceived and directed by Indecline, the American Activist Collective comprised of graffiti writers, filmmakers, photographers, full-time rebels, and activists. Indecline’s projects focus on social, ecological and economical injustices carried out by American and International governments, corporations, and law enforcement agencies.
“The Numbers has given our collective another opportunity not only to work with a band we’ve looked to for inspiration since their early records, but also a chance to create the kind of strong visual content that aims to inspire and educate. Beyond simply showcasing global protest movements, this video is to serve as a reminder that we are all living in a golden age of resistance and need to use our privileges to commit ourselves to wholeheartedly pulling the rope in the opposite direction. Or, to put it more bluntly, don’t be like your parents’ generation. Give a fuck and prove it.” — INDECLINE
