Bad Religion Premiere New Song “Do The Paranoid Style”

Bad Religion have premiered a new song titled “Do The Paranoid Style.” The track, which is inspired by Richard Hofstadter’s 1964 essay “The Paranoid Style In American Politics”, will appear on the band’s new album “Age Of Unreason” (out May 3). Brett Gurewitz commented:

“When fringe groups blame shadowy forces for their problems it is, at worst, delusional. But when those holding the levers of power do the same thing, it’s not delusion, it’s a method of delegitimizing the opposition. It’s a tool of authoritarianism.”

“The band has always stood for enlightenment values. Today, these values of truth, freedom, equality, tolerance, and science are in real danger. This record is our response.”

Greg Graffin added:

“When I saw all these headlines about how terrible our world had become, I started doing a lot of reading. I read about the French revolution, the American Revolution, the Civil War, and I started to recognize that this is a pattern of history and something we should never venture into. There are ample warnings against it. Every school child should know this but it’s hard to get people to read about these things. Maybe this album can help. Because right now, with social media, we are just playing a version of kill the guy with the ball.”

Bad Religion Premiere New Song “The Profane Rights Of Man”

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.”
