TWRY Video Of The Week: Rise Against / Help Is On The Way

Rise Against have released their new official video for the first single, “Help Is On The Way,” off the band’s recently released album, Endgame.  Check out the video below. The band took time out today to describe the video and the choices they made in its creation, stating:

“We finished our new video for the song, “Help Is On The Way,” and are excited to share it with you. Directed by the esteemed Alan Ferguson, our film crew went to New Orleans and filmed what became a dramatic and compelling narrative of Hurricane Katrina through the eyes of a family. As a band, we opted out of being a part of the piece for fear our role might diminish the importance of this video and skew it’s reception. What follows is another video we are proud to put our name on.”
