BAD RELIGION: Entire New Album Available For Streaming

September 21, 2010

"The Dissent Of Man", the fifteenth studio album from the influential, thought-provoking and groundbreaking punk rock band BAD RELIGION, is available for streaming in its entirety on MySpace.

"The Dissent Of Man" wis scheduled for release on September 28. Produced by Joe Barresi (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, TOOL),the CD finds BAD RELIGION pushing the boundaries of its music as much today as it did in their formative years as a genre defining punk band. Over the course of making the album, primary songwriters Greg Graffin and Brett Gurewitz's songwriting was informed by life changing events, with Graffin writing his forthcoming book, "Anarchy Evolution" (out September 28),and Gurewitz embarking on parenthood again.

"These are some of my favorite songs I've ever written," says Gurewitz. "A few of them took me way outside my comfort zone as a writer to a place I haven't gone since 'Recipe' or 'Stranger than Fiction'."

The result is one of the band's most forward-thinking and musically varied albums ever. "The Dissent Of Man" is not only a snapshot of the band's personal experiences of the past years but also of their continued maturity in songwriting, capturing an array of styles ranging from blazing punk rock songs like the opener "The Day That the Earth Stalled" and "Meeting Of The Minds" and classic rock-tinged cuts like "Cyanide" and "Turn Your Back On Me" to radio-rock-ready hits like the first single, "The Devil In Stiches".

"I feel like the last couple of records have been amongst our most conservative, never straying too far from a BAD RELIGION sound," adds Gurewitz. "Whereas on this one we're taking the songs to a lot of different places, exploring our influences and trying out some new things in a way we haven't done in years."

"The Dissent of Man" is a testament to why BAD RELIGION has remained relevant for the better part of three decades. Already having cemented their place in history as a groundbreaking band who helped create a movement in Los Angeles with classic releases like "How Could Hell Be Any Worse?", "Suffer", "Recipe for Hate", "Stranger Than Fiction" and "Process Of Belief", BAD RELIGION continues to inspire and create with a unique style that continues to cross boundaries and transcends genres.
