Sticking it to the man is just so punk rock, and Bad Religion has been a forebearer of this movement through their fierce, fearless, and furious music. Their lyrics cover a range of heated discourse on religion, politics, society, the media, and science. “The band has always stood for enlightenment values,” co-songwriter and guitarist Brett Gurewitz explains. “Today, these values of truth, freedom, equality, tolerance, and science are in real danger. This record is our response,” — pertaining to Bad Religion's seventeenth album release, their 2019 studio album, "Age of Unreason".
Bad Religion was formed in Los Angeles, California in 1980, but has gone through multiple line-up changes, with singer Greg Graffin being the band's only constant member. Their rock-solid, anti-establishment statement has amassed legions of followers. Regarded to be one of the best-selling punk rock acts of all time, Bad Religion to date has released seventeen studio albums, two live albums, three compilation albums, three EPs, and two live DVDs, with a whopping sales of over five million albums sold worldwide.
Hence it is no surprise that Bad Religion has become an influence on fellow punk-rock outfit Alkaline Trio. “Bad Religion was one of my first loves,” says Alkaline Trio, co-lead vocalist/guitarist Matt Skiba. “I remember exactly where I was the first time I heard Suffer. They are one of the very reasons I started playing punk rock music and continue to today. This tour is going to be epic on many levels. We’ve done Warped Tour, and Festival shows many times over the years, but this will be the first time it’s just us, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!”
“This tour is special,” explains Bad Religion co-songwriter and lead singer Greg Graffin, “not only are we celebrating the return of live music, but we get to do it with Alkaline Trio, who are such a great band, really excited about this!”
