Rise Against have updated their Twitter with an update on the progress towards their new album. The band has finished work on instrumental recording and are now finalizing vocals and backing vocals. The band is currently at The Blasting Room working on their next album, expected in 2011 and following up Appeal to Reason. The new album comes after the longest gap in the band's history, having released new albums every two years (or less) since 2001.

They are headed to South America in February and March 2011.
