Rise Against Once Again Deliver a Terrific Video with "House On Fire"

Rise Against just dropped "House on Fire," the second single from their 2017 album Wolves, and man, is it a catchy jam. While it sounds like it could be about a love lost, lead singer Tim McIlrath recently revealed that it's actually about his 13-year-old daughter, and how it's sometimes difficult for a parent to connect with a child, particularly when that parent is trying to be strict despite having a general anti-authority message in a ton of songs. ROUGH LIFE.

Anyway, the music video for "House of Fire" is an emotional tale between grandfather and granddaughter. The Rise Against fellas make a cameo, but as has been the case with a lot of their recent videos, the main characters of the story take center stage, not the band. And that's A-OK in my book, especially when the storylines are as engrossing as this one.
