Rise Against – Join The Ranks 7″

28/10/2011 Leave a comment


I think rise against tell the story well enough for themselves:

“Fat Wreck put us on the map, and “Join The Ranks” was the very first song we ever officially released on a proper label. “Gethsemane” was recorded in an old oil factory in Chicago, the same factory where we would go on to film our first video. Along with “Generation Lost”, this seven inch is long overdue and we’re happy to team up with our old friends at Fat to do it.”

4 taps and we’re being blasted with a new 7″ from message punk rockers rise against. Join the ranks is a classic punk short fast loud track. Second track ‘Gethsemane’ follows much in the same vein but clocks in at just over 2 and a half minutes. Generation Lost the B side track shares it’s name with the bands new DVD. The sound is interesting, it sounds like it was written by them recently but has a really similar feel to the first two tracks. ‘Generation Lost’ clocks in at almost 4 minutes, so you can mosh and thrash a bit longer around your lounge room before having to flip or change records.

The Actual Vinyl

This 7 inch is a pretty straight up release. The black vinyl is housed in a slipcase which has artwork on the front and lyrics and credits on the back. The artwork looks pretty awesome and the more attention paid to it the more I really like it. That’s really all I can say on the vinyl. However I’m aware there is a red vinyl version as well as a picture disc version which has the artwork rather than the standard black.


A – Join the Ranks – 1:27

Gethsemane – 2:29

B – Generation Lost – 3:48


It really depends on what variant you want. The prices are all together however the red and picture disc are about 10 or 20+ more than standard from what I can see.

Ebay – $11+ – $9 inc shipping (australians) – $15 + inc shipping
