Rise Against is celebrating the tenth anniversary of their Revolutions Per Minute album by putting out special version of the release.  Titled RPM 10 , it includes a number of previously-unreleased demo versions. To give you a taste of the demo tracks, the band is offering a preview of an early version of their single “Like the Angel,” which is currently streaming at RollingStone.com .

Frontman Tim McIlrath says he feels the demo version of the track helps to showcase that the song is more than just a political anthem. "While politics play an unapologetic role in what we do, they do not consume our entire artistic output,” McIlrath tells Rolling Stone . “'Like the Angel' is an early example of the kind of songs that found their ways onto all of our records, and how we've always had one foot in politics and one foot in the personal. We loved heavy music but also songs that had a poppy or hooky side to them."

Here is the track list for RPM 10 :

"Black Masks & Gasoline"
"Heaven Knows"
"Dead Ringer"
"Halfway There"
"Like the Angel"
