RISE AGAINST hails from Chicago, Illinois & formed together in 1999.
This track is featured on their latest album: “Nowhere Generation,” which is already out.
Over the years, many journalists have identified Rise Against as “controversial” or “radical,” their music being “bold” and “brave.” But the band’s lyricist, Tim McIlrath begs to differ, and “Talking to Ourselves” is a prime example of that point of view.
According to a press release, vocalist Tim McIlrath says of the track:
“I’ve never thought of our songs as brave or bold’. I think of them as just common sense. When you feel that no one is listening to you, you tend to talk louder, and when you feel no one notices you, you start doing things to get their attention. That’s what this song is about.”
