Chicago punk rock group Rise Against have announced via their official website that they will embark on a nationwide headlining US tour with a very special guest. Punk rock legends Bad Religion will be supporting Rise Against throughout their cross-country trek.

Wait, this can't be right, Bad Religion playing under a band that they've been around over three times longer than? Yes, it's true. According to Rise Against, "We can't really believe it either, but we will be headlining a US tour this spring with the legendary Bad Religion. Best.Tour.Ever."

The tour will be in support of Rise Against's new album titled "Endgame", which is set to be released on March 15th. The first single, "Help Is On The Way", was released on January 25th and can be heard here. The song, acording to singer Tim McIlrath, deals with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill.

Bad Religion also recently released their latest album, "The Dissent of Man" in September of last year. This tour will also give them the opportunity to promote their new album.

Joining the two punk rock giants are Massachusetts-based pop-punk outfit Four Year Strong, who released their third studio album "Enemy of the World" in March of last year.

Tour dates are as follows:

4/5 Las Vegas, NV @ The Joint 4/8 La Jolla, CA @ RIMAC Arena 4/9 San Francisco, CA @ Bill Graham Civic Auditorium 4/11 Portland, OR @ Rose Garden Theater 4/12 Seattle, WA @ WAMU Theatre at Qwest Events 4/14 Magna, UT @ The Great Saltair 4/15 Denver, CO @ The Fillmore Auditorium 4/16 Denver, CO @ The Fillmore Auditorium 4/19 Austin, TX @ Stubb's Waller Creek Amphitheater 4/20 Corpus Christie, TX Concrete Street Amphitheater 4/22 St. Augustine, FL @ St Augustine Amphitheatre 4/23 Boca Raton, FL @ Sunset Cove Amphitheater 4/25 Myrtle Beach, SC @ House of Blues 4/26 Washington DC @ 9:30 Club 4/27 Baltimore, MD @ Ram's Head Live 4/29 Boston, MA @ House of BLues 5/2 Philadelphia, PA @ The Electric Factory 5/3 Philadelphia, PA @ The Electric Factory 5/5 New York, NY @ Terminal 5 5/6 New York, NY @ Terminal 5 5/7 Cleveland, OH @ Nautica Pavilion 5/8 Champaign, IL @ Assembly Hall - University of Illinois 5/10 Sauget, IL @ Pop's Outdoors 5/11 Kansas City, MO @ Midland Theatre 5/13 Chicago, IL @ Aragon Ballroom 5/14 Chicago, IL @ Aragon Ballroom

    bad religion is good, but overrated, so dont feel bad

    Rise Against is headlining because they're relevant. BR just puts out the same record over and over again and rarely tours. U mad, BR fans? PS - FYS rules so hard.

    This sounds great but their album is called Endgame? -__- Megadeth just release their Endgame like a year ago

    I agree, that's where I was standing, I just don't see the FYS fans enjoying the real music.

    Cuz us Cleveland fans are more awesome . Honestly, I couldn't tell you. Maybe they draw more people in Cleveland, maybe the venue in Cleveland doesn't take as much money, maybe they simply had difficulty booking a date...it could be anything. But I feel for you, I'd hate to have the reverse situation.

    Bad Religion... supporting Rise Against. Backwards, much?
    This. Oh well, should be a good tour.

    I agree with you, but I highly doubt anyone there will be fys fans who go to the shows for them and just happen to see bad religion and rise against. Rise against is headlining, which is going to draw the greater amount of fans. And as for high school kids not appreciating bad religion, never doubt the power of high school kids. I'm in high school and I love bad religion, plenty of kids really care about music.

    i think his wife/girlfriend had a kid, and he wanted to spend more time with them, so he left. apparently on pretty good terms.
