Bad Religion Announce New Album, Age Of Unreason
Los Angeles punk rock heroes Bad Religion have announced details of their new album, Age Of Unreason.
To coincide with the news, the band are streaming a brand-new single, Chaos From Within, ahead of Age Of Unreason’s release on May 3 via Epitaph Records.
“The band has always stood for enlightenment values,” co-songwriter and guitarist Brett Gurewitz says. “Today, these values of truth, freedom, equality, tolerance, and science, are in real danger. This record is our response.
“When I saw all these headlines about how terrible our world had become, I started doing a lot of reading,” he adds of Age Of Unreason’s message. “I read about the French revolution, the American Revolution, the Civil War, and I started to recognise 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.”
