After Chicago punk band Rise Against tours Japan, the US, and Australia, they will be returning to Canada. They'll hit Canadian soil during the month of March, hitting a total of 6 cities on the eastern side of the country. The first date the quartet has scheduled is March 2nd in Quebec City, ending the jaunt nine days later in Chicoutimi, Quebec.

The four-piece is out touring the globe in support of their most recent effort called 'Siren Song of the Counter Culture'. The 12-track record was released in August of this year through Geffen records. 'Siren Song of the Counter Culture' is Rise Against's third full-length album, and first for Geffen.

Previous to being signed to the label that is also a home for the likes of Nirvana and Something Corporate, Rise Against was signed to Fat Wreck Chords. As many people know, the independent label is run by Fat Mike of NOFX and Me First and the Gimme Gimmes fame. Both Rise Against's debut and sophomore albums were released through Fat Wreck, which would be 2001's 'The Unravelling' and 2003 'Revolutions Per Minute'.
