Bad Brains, the Washington DC pioneers of punk, have announced that they are working on new material for a new album using all original members (HR, Darryl Jenifer, Dr. Know and Earl Hudson) for a late summer 2011 release, via Megaforce Records. This will be the groups ninth studio album and the first since 2007’s Build A Nation.
Heres what bassist Darryl Jenifer had to say in regards to the new release:
We’re pleased to announce that we have recently been holed up in upstate NY working on new material for a 2011 release. “Stand by for the ‘realist’ we have ever written”. The album is said to be channeling progressive elements and Megaforce expects us to release the album in late-summer 2011.
