Rise Against perform 'Re-Education (Through Labor)' in a crowded headquarter of underground motorcyclists.
A music video for Rise Against's new song called "Re-Education (Through Labor)" has been dropped. Assisted by Kevin Kerslake, the music video shows the band playing in an underground bunker with a gang of motorcyclists.
When the video begins, a famous quote from John F. Kennedy appears on the screen. "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable," the statement read. As the video progresses, it captures the bikers riding around and dropping people in various locations. The closing scene shows the row of bikers watching the city exploding in the night.
"Re-Education" will appear in the band's upcoming fifth studio album, "Appeal to Reason", which is due for release on October 7. "The chorus, it's definitely taking and looking at where we get our information from and who's telling us the information and who's right and who's wrong," their lead singer, Tim McIlrath, explains the concept of their upcoming effort. "And how everything we do has some kind of spin on it and who can you trust."
