Preeminent Los Angeles punk band Bad Religion will release their anticipated new album Age Of Unreason today via Epitaph Records. The record is the storied band’s 17th studio album and offers a fiery and intensely relevant musical response to the times, with songs that address a myriad of socio-political maladies, including conspiracy theories, racist rallies, Trump’s election, the erosion of the middle class, alternative facts and more.
As co-songwriter and guitarist Brett Gurewitz explains, “We’ve always written songs of protest from a humanist perspective but the need for it today seems graver than ever. In the US, and around the world, our most precious values of liberty, truth, and even reason itself, seem to be under attack. This album is our best shot at an angry but clear-headed response to a fucked situation.”
Age of Unreason is both a dire warning and testament to resilience. The overall message being – stay informed about the world and oneself.
