The Secret Show is a free, exclusive performance for the MySpace community. Rise Against and MySpace are asking fans to donate food which will go The Greater Boston Food Bank for entry into the show. The band has also partnered with Peta2 for the show who will be distributing literature inside the show.

This is the first ever Secret Show in which MySpace have partnered with a charity. After talking with the band, the program realized this was the perfect band to do this with and an incredible way to kick off the release of their new album.

For their fifth studio album, 'Appeal To Reason,' Rise Against teamed up with Bill Stevenson (Black Flag, Descendants) and Jason Livermore to record at the Blasting Room in Ft. Collins, CO - the same production team and studio used for "The Sufferer & the Witness" and "Revolutions Per Minute." First single "Re-Education (Through Labor)" is already a top 5 Modern Rock hit.

Rise Against are vocalist Tim McIlrath, bassist Joe Principe, drummer Brandon Barnes and guitarist Zach Blair. In spring 2001, the band released their debut CD 'The Unraveling' on Fat Wreck Chords. After two years of solid touring, Rise Against recorded Revolutions Per Minute (2002), followed by Siren Song Of The Counter Culture produced by Gggarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Melvins, Sick Of It All). The Sufferer & the Witness was released in 2006 and debuted at #10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.

The Greater Boston Food Bank's mission is to help end hunger in eastern Massachusetts. To achieve its mission, The Food Bank feeds more than 320,000 people annually in nine counties in eastern Massachusetts.

MySpace Music has organized more than 150 Secret Shows since the franchise launched in February 2006 with artists like Gnarls Barkley, The Offspring, Neil Diamond, Slayer, Fran Ferdinand, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs performing in cities around the world.
