Punk legends Bad Religion have quite the discography under their belt, as they are approaching their 40th anniversary with 16 studio albums. True North was released to the masses in 2013, and since then fans have been eager to hear new music from Greg Graffin and company.
Not one to shy away from stating their opinion in a revealing fashion, Bad Religion released the politically charged “The Kids Are Alt-Right” – their first track in five years.
Perhaps paying tribute to The Offspring and The Who with the song title, “The Kids Are Alt-Right,” the new track is your standard Bad Religion jam from a rhythmic aspect, maybe a bit slower than some of their other classic offerings.
Musically, it’s another Bad Religion track to jam to from a rhythmic guitar and chord progression perspective. The video that pairs together with the release of the single is quite revealing from a political outlook to say the least, raising awareness to various political issues and events – see for yourself via Epitaph Records below:

Rumors have been surfacing dating back to as long as three years ago that a new album is expected to be on the way from Bad Religion. As mentioned in our 2018 Most Anticipated Albums, news had been flying around from the Bad Religion camp that their 17th (yes, 17th!) studio album would hit the streets mid-2018. Guitarist Brett Gurewitz disclosed that the band had been writing the new album, and while details have still yet to surface on the full landscape of a new record, they remain on track dropping a new single mid-2018.
While new material should hopefully warrant more tour dates, catching Greg Graffin and company on the road anytime soon will be challenging unless folks already have tickets to see them across the pond. Otherwise, the only US Tour Date at the moment appears to be Riot Fest 2018 in Chicago. Check back soon at The Pier for more details on Bad Religion tour announcements and album details!
