Since releasing their 2019 record Age of Unreason, LA punk band Bad Religion has continued drawing inspiration from U.S. politics on their recent string of singles including “Faith Alone 2020,” a reworking of their classic song of the same name. In October 2020, they shared a track titled “What Are We Standing For.” On January 20, 2021, they celebrated Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration with a song called “Emancipation of the Mind.”
Swedish garage-rock band The Hives went on a “tour” of the world wide web in January 2021, that is to say, they performed a livestream concert called the Virtual World Wide Web World Tour 2021. They released songs in 2019 called “I’m Alive” and “Good Samaritan,” but they haven’t released a full album since 2012’s Lex Hives.
Life of Agony also last released music in 2019, but it was a full-length record for them, called The Sound of Scars. The Brooklyn, NY based alternative metal group had planned on touring with Misfits’ Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein’s metal band, Doyle. The tour was set to begin on March 13, 2020, but that was interrupted by the COVID-19 quarantine.
Chicago punk band Rise Against has a new album planned for release on June 4, called Nowhere Generation. They announced summer 2021 tour dates in support of the record, including an appearance at Rebel Rock’s inaugural festival on September 23-26 at the Central Florida Fairgrounds in Orlando, Florida.
California pop-punk band The Offspring released a new album on April 16 this year titled Let the Bad Times Roll. They also turned their 1994 hit single “Come Out and Play” into a PSA encouraging vaccination.
