Rise Against Just Dropped New Album Recorded in Fort Collins
These are the songs that made us who we are. Doing a stripped-down version shines a little more of a spotlight on them. We asked ourselves questions like, ‘How can we re-imagine this so that we’re not just playing the same song on acoustic guitars? What if we got a different instrument to play this part?’ - Tim McIlrath of Rise Against (via Virgin Records press release)
The band recorded the album with longtime friends Jason Livermore and Bill Stevenson at The Blasting Room, with whom they have recorded several other albums. The Ghost Note Symphonies isn't the typical Rise Against record; the band gives stripped down versions of several of their songs, like 'Savior,' 'Audience of One,' and 'House on Fire.' The songs also feature instruments like violin and ukulele.
