This is the title track of Rise Against's seventh album. Frontman Tim McIlrath explained to HMV.com
where the record's name came from. "The Black Market is about the the endeavor of creating art like we create, the exchange of emotions like angst and anger and sadness between us and our audience," he said. "It's about the waters you churn to make art, and the darkness that can linger long after you've created it."
