Bad Religion Share ‘My Sanity’

Bad Religion have released another new single titled ‘My Sanity’. Previously, Bad Religion released ‘The Profane Rights of Man’, a “short, fast, and packed with righteous harmonies” track according to Consequence of Sound. Additionally, the band released ‘The Kids Are Alt-Right’, a “catchy and deeply satisfying melody-surge about new permutations of racism” as reported by Stereogum.

Bad Religion began in the sprawling suburbs surrounding Los Angeles, with the teenage punks offering an impassioned counterpoint to a culture of consumerism and anti-intellectualism. Founding members Greg Graffin, Brett Gurewitz, and Jay Bentley were eventually joined by guitarists Brian Baker of Minor Threat, Mike Dimkich of The Cult, and the supremely talented drummer Jamie Miller of …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead.

Bad Religion have been highly influential force in modern punk, producing beloved international hits like ‘Infected’, ‘21st Century (Digital Boy)’, and ‘Sorrow’, and building a devoted worldwide following.

 

 

 

Frank Turner Puts On A Brave Face

Frank Turner has announced his new single ‘Brave Face’, which is available now through Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor Records. Taken from Turner’s recent album Be More Kind, ‘Brave Face’feels, he says, “like one of the most important tracks on the album to me. It brings together the twin themes of the record, the romantic and the political, which feels ever more apt - the world keeps getting crazier, and I just got engaged!”

2018 has been a busy year, even by Turner’s standards. Following the release of his seventh studio album, he embarked on the eponymous Be More Kind World Tour playing to over 200,000 people across the UK, the USA, Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and covering 120 dates.  Turner will return to the UK to play a seven-date arena tour between January 22 and February 3 next year, culminating in a show at London’s prestigious Alexandra Palace.

Turner recently announced details of his award-winning festival Lost Evenings III, which will take place at Boston’s House of Blues over four nights in 2019 (one date has already sold out). The winner of the AIM Best Independent Festival Award in September 2017, this is the festival’s third year, but first with an American destination.

For Turner, Be More Kind represents a thematic and sonic line in the sand for the 36-year-old. “I wanted to try and get out of my comfort zone and do something different,” he says. “‘Brave Face’took the most work of any on the record. We cut it three separate times over the course of recording. In the end, the final arrangement was heavily influenced by being on the road with Jason Isbell (A Star Is Born) and hearing him play his latest material from Nashville Sound. I also reworked the lyrics a few times; I was always happy with the central metaphor, but the details needed tweaking. I like the idea of facing down the end of the world with your significant other; it's a sort of Thelma And Louise image, in a way.”
