“We’re not announcing the album yet, but everyone knows we’ve been working on it. So it will be coming out in 2019. And an official announcement will be made in January.”
Bad Religion have premiered a new song titled “My Sanity.” You can check that out below:
Bad Religion have premiered a new song titled “The Profane Rights Of Man.” Greg Graffin commented:
“The song is based on the 1789 document ‘The Universal Rights Of Man’. Since we’re a band that has a longstanding tradition of championing the enlightenment, we wanted to emphasize that our society is based on a profane rather than a sacred theological justification for human rights. In sum, the song is about Bad Religion’s belief in a secular basis for the protection of human rights for all people.”
During an interview with LA Weekly, Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz confirmed the band are working on a new album. He said the following: “We’re writing for a new album, recording this fall or late summer. No release date announced yet, but we should have an album’s worth of ‘Fuck Trump’ songs pretty soon. It’s exactly what we need.” If you missed it, the band’s latest single “The Kids Are Alt-Right” can be found HERE.
Bad Religion have premiered a new song titled “The Kids Are Alt-Right.” This is the band’s first new music since releasing “True North” in 2013.
Brooks Wackerman has exited Bad Religion. The drummer said he is leaving to “pursue another path.”
Here’s his full statement:
“Dear boys and girls,
After 15 years, 6 records and countless tours- I’ve decided to move on from Bad Religion.
This wasn’t an easy decision to make after spending a good chunk of my life in such an iconic band, but after reassessing my future in music it was time for me to pursue another path.
As I’m writing this, my mind is flashing back to my audition with these guys in 2000. I’ll never forget how exhilarating it was to pay “Stranger than Fiction” (my first song) with them and how well is all jelled, as I was doing my best to camouflage my nerves while walking into Cole Studios in Los Angeles, CA.
To have this education and growth has been invaluable to me, and I’m forever grateful to this band for allowing me to be a part of a movement that I can honestly look back on our time together and say, “I’m proud of what we accomplished.”
