Rise Against talk about new album 'RPM10'

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Rise Against's 'Revolutions Per Minute', absolutepunk got on the phone with bassist Joe Principe to discuss this essential release and the possibility of releasing a new album next year.

What would you say is the biggest difference between this and a more recent record like Endgame? I think it definitely has heavier edge compared to your more recent work.

Yeah, Revolutions Per Minute is very stripped down and raw, which is usually the nature of any band’s first or second record. Especially since we were such a little band back then and we didn’t have a big recording budget so we just did what we could. But I think that it was probably more of a nod to our influences growing up while I think Endgame is the result of being a band for 12 years and growing as people and musicians. We also like to challenge ourselves and kind of, we don’t like to rehash old ideas and there’s this constant progression that hopefully remains intact for future records.
