Bad Religion will be coming back with a new album in the future, but according to a fansite (http://www.thebrpage.net/news/?newsID=1616), their bassist Jay Bentley said that they're not going to release it until 2010 because they're going to spend most of 2009 touring around. Here's what he had to say:


graffin teaches jan / feb / mar..
japan early april
warped tour late june / july / aug
australia end of sept / oct
so there is really only nov / dec left for recording. there isn't much material as of now, but we could probably guess with 99% certainty that we will be working on new material for 2010.
30 years... seems cool

2010 may still be a long wait, but I'm very much exicited for the new album. Anyone else exicited too?

I'll gladly wait three years for a Bad Religion album, if New Maps of Hell is any indication.

I preferred Empire to New Maps; but still, 2002 onwards has become my favorite era of Bad Religion. So whenever it comes out, i'm still excited.

I hope so. According to The Answer Wiki (http://www.doc-ent.com/theanswer/index.php?title=New_Maps_Of_Hell), it might appear on the next Bad Religion record.

In case you're wondering, their coming to Australia this fall with NOFX. You can find the dates here (http://www.punknews.org/article/33121).

Alex101

Really "meh" about the NOFX thing, not exactly a fan of theirs on any level. But I guess it has to be better than BR's supporting acts last time.

Saw them in Brisbane last time, this seems pretty quick for a return here. Still, no way I'm complaining. I'll be there again, even if it is a sucky outdoor venue that really happens to...well, suck.

Is Brett joining the band this time, anyone know? Not that it matters. But last time he must have been doing Epitaph-y type stuff.
So, you live in Australia, is that how you got see BR in Brisbane?

From a new interview with drummer Brooks Wackerman:

"Brett and Greg have already started work on some new material. I'm yet to hear any of their ideas but when we get back from Australia and New Zealand we're going to start pre-production on the next record. It's just a matter of getting the songs together and making the best record we can. But in 2010 we're definitely releasing a new album."

Process of Belief is without a doubt THE best Bad Religion album --- most accessible, best sound quality, and (IMO) best material. I got started with PoB after I saw the video for "Sorrow" on the Rock Against Bush DVD.

I really disagree here.

I think is really overrated, with a bunch of fillers: can't stop it, destined for nothing.
And CRAP: the lie, bored and extremely dangerous and You don't belong

I like this album, but the fans hate the Atlantic era- which I really appreciate-so... I totally would recommend the gray race:

AWESOME PRODUCTION
AWESOME SONGS

I wouldn't say Process of Belief is a part of the Atlantic era to be honest. I would more so say it's the start of their current in my opinion.

I only really enjoyed two albums from their Atlantic era: Stranger than Fiction and No Substance. Gray Race wasn't really all that great for me (but it does have some good songs on there, don't get me wrong) and I never heard New America because the album is not accessible to me nor is it desirable (the tracks I've heard weren't that great.)

On topic, I'm looking forward to the new one. I loved their last one (new maps of hell). Every song was just great.

And to answer the question asked earlier, 21st Century Digital Boy was the song that made me take notice to Bad Religion.

I actually liked the shorter songs (Supersonic, Can't Stop It, Prove It, etc.). Kinda reminds me of those 30-second numbers that Sum 41 occasionally throws on an album (A.N.I.C., THT, Never Wake Up, etc.). They're short and sweet and even sort of hard to play (on drums, at least).

And I never did understand the hate for the second half of PoB --- The Defense is different from every other song on that album; I really like The Lie because it's one of the few songs solo'd on by Gurewitz that isn't really simple and predictable. Kinda reminds me of Modern Man (which I also liked, except for Graffin's habit of being REALLY nasally back in that era).

It's ultimately a matter of taste, of course, but to me, PoB is to Bad Religion what Insomniac was to Green Day --- most of the songs run together like one long song (it's really easy for me to listen to either album all the way through in one sitting), and yet it's also a little different and experimental from their previous work up to that point. Also, I dunno what it is about it exactly, but I *love* the production value of PoB. Second place goes to New Maps, which would have been first if it hadn't been way too bass-heavy.

I think we can all agree that TPOB was the comeback everyone was hoping for.

But...I really like TESB a lot more than NMOH...both song for song as a whole, it just really feels solid from start to finish. The last one just seemed to be done like "another BR record"...not all that love put into it.

I thought similarly about the song. I instantly liked the Resist Stance and I understand that they might want to release a slower song after that to give a better prospect to the new album. Maybe it will grow on me later when I listen to it in the middle of the new album. It would not be a good opening song for a BR album in my opinion.

I just skimmed it on their Myspace....I have to say I'm surprised, it's actually quite new and original. I was afraid every song was gonna be like Resist Stance, more of the *same* thing (they've had like 8 songs with that exact same drum beat on every album), but they're actually kinda diverse this time through. I've liked Won't Somebody since I first heard it, and Cyanide has some really good slide-ish sounding guitar to it (reminds me of some of the songs from Recipe of Hate that I liked, like Man With A Mission and Kerosene). It's nice to see they're kind of experimenting more and not just riding the wave by being "trupunx" all the freakin' time.

Okay, I got Dissent yesterday....I've listened to it 2 or 3 times since....

Wow.

Just....wow.

This is a great album. It's a lot better than I expected. I even like the generic "Bad Religion tempo" songs. Only Rain, The Resist Stance, Pride and the Pallor...awesome. I like the more experimental/poppy ones as well; Someone To Believe makes me think of the No Substance era, Wrong Way Kids makes me think New America, Meeting of the Minds is absolutely evil-sounding (and would've been right at home on New Maps)....but on top of it all, they have a couple of really original-sounding songs that give this record a feel of its own, instead of just feeling like an homage to everything that's already been done. I think my favorite song on here right now is the last track, "I Won't Say Anything."

Dayum. I fucking love this album :D

Both are great, still not the best BR albums, and i usually like hardcore stuff more than poppy, which should lead to liking new maps more, but I can't say for sure which one I like more. That's happening actually to most of the BR catalog for me, besides No Control, Against The Grain, Suffer, Generator and Process, that i consider their best and slightly above the rest, and No Substance/New America that rank bellow the rest, while not being bad or mediocre records.

Fuck this is awesome, and it's quite a quick grower. It really is better, much better than New Maps. New Maps seriously lacked variety in songs. It's a pity, there are some excellent tracks on that album, but you couldn't really say they stand out on their own. On Dissent however this problem is gone.

Its grown on me a tiny bit but theres also a lotta flaws about the album.... theres a few songs that sound like old ones, Won't Somebody reminds me of 21st Century Digital Boy, and Infected at the same time. Some of the lyrics are a little on the cheesy side, which for the most part isn't a big deal. BUt i don't know they kinda bother me on this one. And of course Like I've been saying to everyone Won't Say Anything sounds like this song...

I went to the 90s night of the three night stand at Irving Plaza. It was a lot of fun. But it also solidified my theory that old ppl singing about not letting people tell you what to do comes across as pretty sad and pathetic. Not saying that old punks in their mid to late 40s should start writing songs about their 401Ks and ish, but I feel like they've lost their way a bit. "Wrong Way Kids" was the only song from the new album they played that night (I think), and all I could think about the whole time was "Really, dude?" and "Why does he keep pronouncing it 'keeeeds'?" Like from South Park, when Cartman becomes a Latino schoolteacher. 'How do I reeeach theese keeeeds?' Anyway. I thought it was a great show, and they sounded great overall. But everyone is old. I was one of the youngest there. They were too old for a song like "A Walk" when they wrote it, let alone 15 years later.

I was one of the youngest there. They were too old for a song like "A Walk" when they wrote it, let alone 15 years later.

Wow...really? Wrong Way Kids was my favorite song off the new album. It has this kind of melancholy reflective feel to it, really nostalgic. I like that line where he says, "Kids today are gone away, petitioning the dust/With no one to look up to because they're looking up to us." It's like he's saying that, if our kids and this generation's youth are blowing us off, then it's our fault for not being relevant to them and trying to understand them. So I see that more as a song deliberately intended for older people, appealing to their memories of their youth as well, telling them to remember what it was like when they were kids ("Did you ever want to take bad advice? Did you ever want to go and take it twice?").

On the one hand I kinda see what you're saying, but I don't really see them as "singing songs about not letting people tell you what to do." I mean, they DO do that, but to me there's slightly more than that; it's not *just* "rebelling against authority," it's finding something to believe in on your own, and not just settling for what someone else can find for you. I always felt like they were telling you to make your own life and not follow other people's lead (even their own, like in No Direction, which they played at the show I went to :D). To me, that kind of message (while obvious to some who were lucky enough to find it in their earlier years) is appropriate for all ages.

Also, my show was a Halloween show, so they were deliberately a lot more over the top (Greg Hetson was a woman, someone from MTV if the jokes made were to be believed; I dunno who Graffin was supposed to be, but he implied he was Jim Lindberg from Pennywise. I dunno if he was joking 'cause I don't know Pennywise, but he was speaking with a New Jersey accent in between songs, if that helps; Jay Bentley was a Werewolf, and as far as I could tell Brooks and Brian Baker weren't dressed up). So it had more of that "party vibe" and the focus was more on fun than on overly contemplating the lyrics or anything :D

Little_Miss_1565
11-01-2010, 12:25 PM
Right, they're fun -- I had a lot of fun at the show myself! I was just trying to say in my own inelegant way that some of the songs have aged about as well as a lot of the dads in the audience...that is to say, not so well. "Epiphany" is hands down my favorite of the new songs. I feel like they'd be best served writing more songs like that rather than youth gone astray. But that's because I'm a cranky old woman.

Yes, they were MTV characters -- they were the cast of The Jersey Shore. Greg G. was The Situation, Greg H. was Snooki, etc etc.

@ miss 1565.

a lot of what you say really surprises me, although maybe lot of it's cause i'm the other side of the pond. i saw them twice in a week in... august i think. one of the best shows of my life just cause i love em so much and i needn't say more. but at their first show i felt pretty old and i'm 18. there was a fuckload of 14-16 year olds, some of them hadn't even come with their dads! i thought this indicated pretty well how what they sing hasn't aged too much to lose its relevance (personally i believe punk rock doesn't age that much though as it's all got the same basic formula. maybe you're talking more about the lyrics, but i've never really had a problem with the sound sounding aged to me other than on into the known =p)

on the subject of the new album, i'm disappointed. i agree they shouldn't even touch the don't be a trendy asshole subject but for the large part they don't. i'm not going to go into why i don't like it i just found it totally weak but i think most fans feels the same. i like pride and pallor, the second half of the day the earth stalled is awesome but that's about it really.

I tend to think similarly, but a while ago I realized that the newer albums are great, too. They are just different, and I don't think that the band is going to create a second Suffer, No Control or Against The Grain because they try to evolve a bit with each album. So No Control may remain my favorite BR album, but I don't think that there'll ever be another one like it. Right now, I think that the Dissent Of Man might just be on a level with No Control in 5 years for me, so I'll give it a "benefit of the more recent albums".

Well, it's not like he said that the album is in the works already, he just said that there will be a new album sooner or later. I'm getting it as "it comes when it feels natural". He didn't say they've already started writing the material for it or anything.



The Dissent of Man stood the test of time for me. Listened it today for the first time in a while, and it's still just as awesome as it was when it was released. If this happens with an album (for me), then this is the sign that it's gonna be regularly in my stereo in the future too, or at least every now and then. Fucking great album. In fact i probably like it even more now :)

You're right. "The Gray Race" is one of my least favourite albums by BR because I got sick of it quickly but I kind of like "Fuck You" right now.

But I really hope the new album is more like "The Dissent of Man" and nothing like "New Maps Of Hell".

My first BR album was Against The Grain. My favourites are No Control, Against The Grain, Generator, Stranger Than Fiction, The Process of Belief and The Dissent of Man.

Still think The Gray Race is a good album, it's just not one of my favourites.

Whoa! Sounds like Generator.

Totally disagree about Empire being one of their stronger albums, though. I do like it, it just gets way too specific-issue with the political stuff, just blends in with every other trupunx "Lol Bush izn't mai Preisdents" album of, like, 2003-2005. The music's good, it's no Process or New Maps, though. The softer songs on it are all really great, too, the lyrics are just pretty weak for Greg.

Dissent's really good and all (as all Bad Religion's stuff has been, like, ever - yep, Atlantic years defender), but it's probably the weaker of their four since Process. I love the interesting softer almost country-vibe it has like Recipe For Hate, they haven't done that in a long time, but a lot of it was kind of middle-of-the-road, too.

I'm loving just about all of the new stuff so far, aside from "Fuck You" which, while Bad Religion to a tee, it gets old after about the third or fourth listen and is pretty bland for them.

I'm a little worried the album might turn out a little too "Raaah, see, we can still rock out hardcore-stylez when we're old, uh, yo", and not have that same heavier-than-usual-but-still-pretty-mature-and-evolving vibe that New Maps did. Stuff like "Dept. Of False Hope" (which is friggin' great) are alleviating that a lot, though. But still, psyched as always for new BR, along with Social D and The Offspring they're about the only punk rock really worth a damn.

It's a good album but it's not close to being one of their best and I don't think it's superior to The Dissent of Man.

I listened once (finally!) and the album sounds awesome, so refreshing, too hard to pick a favorite. And now I love it, and after multiple listens I'm gonna adore it... BR can't really offer much new stuff to the music scene, but still they have maintained their sound and a lot of songs sound innovative and fresh. Graffin's singing is on its peak now imho. The whole thing is fast, hard, catchy and extremely melodic. Couldn't get any better.

I haven't really listened to much of a Bad Religion album since Empire. BR can pull off a few slightly different styles, but somehow their songwriting just can't keep me intrigued for this long. Although to be fair, I've heard very little of their work in the past 5 or 6 years. This is especially true of their past two albums.
