LOS ANGELES, CA Tuesday Oct.10.2006 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Rise Against is on the hunt to find the perfect treatment for their upcoming video "Prayer of the Refugee."

But according to frontman Tim McIlrath, the band is finding it to be no easy task. "Some people have no idea what kind of band you are," he told MTV. He then jokingly said "As long as there are strippers and champagne and a cruise ship and my crib."

But on a more serious note, McIlrath spoke of the single, saying, "The lyrics definitely follow the path of a story. It's along the lines of people who live with refugee status, whether that refugee status is [from] living in Sudan and [being] displaced or if you feel like you've been displaced in your own home. Or whether kids from the suburbs feel displaced, like they don't belong there. It's a common theme for a lot of people."
