“The one thing about being a band that sings about the ills of society is that you kind of have a bottomless well of inspiration, because society is constantly letting you down and therefore constantly giving you fuel for another record. As soon as we live in a utopia, I’ll hang my hat and be happy to do so! I’m trying to put myself out of business, and I would love to! I would love to wake up one day and think, “Hey, I have nothing to sing about, the world seems like a really lovely place today!”, but so far, that hasn’t happened yet.” — Tim McIlrath

Not entirely done editing this, yet, but I wanted to share it. I was shooting the band in Cleveland this past week, and within one song Tim threw himself into the crowd - he did it so quickly, a lot of us photographers didn’t even notice at first! I wish I had gotten a better photo, but I did snap this one and I think it’s a pretty fair illustration of how these shows tend to go. He spent at least half a song, if not longer, holding onto people’s hands and singing and giving high-fives while security freaked out and refused to let go of him and kept trying to pull him back. Very cool.
