Bad Religion’s Autobiography “Do What You Want” To Be Released In August

Bad Religion’s autobiography “Do What You Want: The Story of Bad Religion” is set to be released on August 18. The band co-wrote the book with Jim Ruland and it can be pre-ordered HERE.

Here’s a description of the book:

“DO WHAT YOU WANT: The Story of Bad Religion reveals the ups and downs of the band’s 40-year career. From their beginnings as teenagers jamming in a San Fernando Valley garage dubbed “The Hell Hole” to headlining major music festivals around the world, DO WANT YOU WANT tells the whole story in irreverent style.

While DO WHAT YOU WANT tracks down nearly all of Bad Religion’s members past and present, the chief storytellers are the four voices that define Bad Religion: Greg Graffin, a Wisconsin kid who sang in the choir and became an L.A. punk rock icon while he was still a teenager; Brett Gurewitz, a high school dropout who founded the independent punk label Epitaph Records and went on to become a record mogul; Jay Bentley, a surfer and skater who gained recognition as much for his bass skills as for his onstage antics; and Brian Baker, a founding member of Minor Threat who joined the band in 1994 and brings a fresh perspective as an intimate outsider.

With a unique blend of melodic hardcore and thought-provoking lyrics, Bad Religion paved the way for the punk rock explosion of the 1990s, opening the door for bands like NOFX, The Offspring, Rancid, Green Day, and Blink-182 to reach wider audiences. They showed the world what punk could be, and they continue to spread their message one song, one show, one tour at a time-with no signs of stopping.”

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.”

Bad Religion Premiere New Song “Chaos From Within”, Reveal Details For New Album “Age Of Unreason”

Bad Religion have premiered a new song titled “Chaos From Within.” This track is from the band’s new album “Age Of Unreason,” which will be released on May 3.

“Age Of Unreason” Track Listing:

01. “Chaos From Within”
02. “My Sanity”
03. “Do The Paranoid Style”
04. “The Approach”
05. “Lose Your Head”
06. “End of History”
07. “Age of Unreason
08. “Candidate
09. “Faces of Grief

11. “Big Black Dog”
12. “Downfall”
13. “Since Now”
14. “What Tomorrow Brings”
15. “The Profane Rights of Man” (bonus track)

Brett Gurewitz said the following about the album, which focuses on the current social and political climate:

“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 Planning To Release New Album In 2019

During an interview with KROQ, Brett Gurewitz confirmed that Bad Religion will be releasing a new album in 2019. This news comes after the band previously released three new singles, “The Kids Are Alt-Right,” “The Profane Rights of Man,” and “My Sanity,” earlier this year. Gurewitz said the following:

“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 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.”
