Chicago based punks Rise Against have released a new song called ‘Broken Dreams, Inc.’, their first offering of new material in three years.
Frontman Tim McIIlrath had this to say of the song and its message.
“‘Broken Dreams, Inc.’ speaks to today’s changing landscape of American society, the opportunities that are available to some but not to others, the people who are able to benefit versus those who get left behind, who suffer and end up as casualties. How do we level the playing field so everyone can have a real chance at attaining the American Dream? One word, ‘disruption’. You have to put power into the hands of the people, not business, you have to value people and community over profit. You can’t have a shareholder-run country or a shareholder-run world, a world that values profit above all else, because profit above all else can result in dangerous repercussions for humankind.”
You can check out ‘Broken Dreams, Inc.’ and its accompanying animated video below.
At the time of writing, it’s uncertain whether or not the track will feature on a yet-to-be-announced EP or full-length album.
