Rise Against’s new video for ‘Help Is On The Way’. I was skeptical at first, sort of like they’re becoming a cliche of themselves. But that lasted about five seconds after I realised how good this video was and how so many other bands should be doing things like this instead of hiring a hair and makeup team and playing in an abandoned warehouse.
That isn’t directed at any specific band, by the way.
As for the song itself, I hope it’s a grower. Unfortunately so far their new songs are sounding okay, but sort of like the songs on their older albums that I don’t like as much. Whether they’ve grown as a band, or if the songs are technically brilliant but just not my taste, well I’ve never been a very good judge of that (I talk about music, I don’t analyse it). It’s hopefully just a personal taste issue. I sincerely hope that everybody else loves this record, even if I don’t.
