Hot on the heels of the release of a free live album, punk rockers Bad Religion (Epitaph Records) have announced they’ve entered the studio to record their 15th studio album, to be released in the fall.
Celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, the Los Angeles band recently entered the studio with 16 songs to be recorded with producer Joe Barresi (Queens Of The Stone Age, Tool).
Fans have already had a taste of two of the new songs, “Resist Stance” and “Won’t Somebody,” both of which appeared on the previously mentioned free live album 30 Years Live.
Guitarist Brett Guerwitz said in a press release that, “While we’re celebrating our 30th anniversary as a band this year it’s also a time when Greg and I have embarked on new creative pursuits which have informed our songwriting process. I’m a new parent again and Greg a new author having just completed his first book Anarchy Evolution,” says Gurewitz. “So the songs are a distillation of where we’ve been and who we are now…a natural evolution of creativity.”
The band has also said it will update its official site with news about the ongoing recording process.
