Punk icons Bad Religion will release their new album True North this January 22 on Epitaph Records. In a world still brimming with rampant anti-intellectualism, inequality and oppression, the band's signature brand of sonically charged humanist dissent seems as relevant as ever. On their newest record, the storied band deliberately revisits and refines the powerful and melodic Southern California sound that it helped to define.
"We went back to our original mission statement of short concise bursts of melody and thought," co-songwriter and guitarist Brett Gurewitz explains. "The intent was to record stripped down punk songs without sacrificing any conceptual density."
Oh, that's what we love most about BxRx.
The album's first single is a propulsive anthem succinctly called "Fuck You." As the band's singer and co-songwriter Greg Graffin explains, "If any band should have a song with that title it should be us. It just sounds like a perfect Bad Religion song."

What did you think of "Fuck You?" We thought, "FUCK YEAH!"
