Bad Religion name new LP

Bad Religion

LA punks Bad Religion will release new LP ‘True North’ on 21 Jan via Epitaph, it’s just been officially decreed.

Guitarist and Epitaph boss Brett Gurewitz has this to say about it: “We went back to our original mission statement of short concise bursts of melody and thought. The intent was to record stripped down punk songs without sacrificing any conceptual density”.

Frontman Greg Graffin adds: “I think working within certain restrictions took away the mental aspect and let us devote more attention to conveying feeling. We all go through pain and the best elements of punk give us hope in those dark times”.

Hear a featured track from the album now, the succinctly-titled ‘Fuck You’, if you so choose:
