Rise Against has premiered the video for “Talking to Ourselves,” a track off the band’s latest album, Nowhere Generation.

The clip finds a group of people in an art gallery featuring canvases of QR codes instead of paintings.

“Talking To Ourselves is about watching yourself and the people around you fall into complacency,” Rise Against says. “Despite your best efforts to get people’s attention, it feels like no one is listening.” 

“Sometimes we feel the urge to do something crazy, to disturb the peace, to jostle the world around us awake,” the band adds. “Our actions might be seen as out of the ordinary, but they are acts of desperation when all else failed.”

You can watch the “Talking to Ourselves” video streaming now on YouTube.

Nowhere Generation, the ninth Rise Against album, was released last June. Its title track gave the Chicago punks their first-ever number-one Billboard Mainstream Rock Airplay hit.

Rise Against is currently on tour in support of Nowhere Generation. The outing continues Wednesday in Toronto.
