Here’s the official press release:
LA’s legendary punk heroes Bad Religion are streaming their new album True North in its entirety starting today, in front of their January 21st album release date. In anticipation of their new release, Bad Religion have announced a European tour starting on April 27th at the Pirate Satellite Festival in Stuttgart.
True North celebrates the power of cogent punk in the face of personal pain and adversity. It is one of the band’s most emotionally accessible albums to date. Beneath the bristling guitars and surging drums exists one of the most cathartic works of the band’s career. With True North, Bad Religion deliberately revisits and refines the fast melodic Southern California sound they helped to define on albums such as Suffer, No Control and Recipe For Hate.
With a new album around the corner, Bad Religion cements their place in punk rock history with 16 studio albums, worldwide critical acclaim and countless world tours and will continue the celebration of their distinguished career with extensive touring in 2013 and their first ever appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon this January 30th.
“True North is music played in glorious technicolour” **** – Kerrang!
“Bad Religion see no reason to mess with the formula on their 16th album. Which is reassuring” *** – Mojo
“Timeless Punks party like it’s 1999. And 1989. And 1979” *** – Q
“With its high-minded lyrical concerns, its family-sized choruses and its authors’ buoyant pursuit of what, in lesser hands, could be a restrictive musical form, True North is a superior addition to Bad Religion’s already towering body of work”. – bbc.com
“The best record since “Recipe For Hate” – Spiegel.de
