The Black Market

The Black Market by Rise Against
Released: Jul 2014
Label: Interscope Records
Tim McIlrath keeps surprising punk and pop audiences alike with his slinging command of hooky vocal riffs and Bad Religion-esque riffs pumped to steroidal My Chemical Romance grandiosity. The first three songs on Rise Against's seventh album are as good as anything they've ever done, if not melodically juicier (especially on new wave ballad "Tragedy+Time") and catchier ("I Don't Want to Be Here Anymore" will cram the title hook in your head for days). With The Black Market, McIlrath has finally grown into his power chord attack with tunes that justify his longevity.
