“The songs on this record are different versions of existing Rise Against songs, covers, or originals that never made it on a record for some reason,”says lead singer Tim McIlrath.“Common wisdom tells us that the reason is that a B-side is just a song not good enough to make the cut. While I think that logic can apply sometimes, I think it’s short-sighted. See, the songs that really aren’t good enough, you’ll never hear. They never make it outside of our practice space. If we finish a song, bring it to the studio, write lyrics, and see it to fruition, then it becomes one of the children that make up a family of songs. If we weren’t proud of it, it would have been scrapped along the way.”
“We have fast songs and slow songs and political songs. We have personal songs and dark songs and positive songs. We aim for balance on each record. Every song is like one of our children; some just get orphaned. The songs are the lost children of Rise Against.”
Rise Against released their sixth studio albumEndgamein 2011 where it debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The set included top 5 radio singles “Help Is On The Way,” “Make It Stop (September’s Children)” and “Satellite.” Three of the band’s previous albums, 2004’sSiren Song of the Counter Culture, 2006’sThe Sufferer & The Witnessand 2008’sAppeal To Reasonhave been RIAA-certified gold.
