Bad Religion Perform New Song ‘Past Is Dead’ on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’
Punk rock legends Bad Religion made an awesome appearance on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ last night (Jan. 30) to perform the new song ‘Past is Dead’ from their sixteenth studio album, ‘True North.’
Bad Religion have been putting out solid records for over 30 years, and with hardcore fans still cemented into the band’s foundation, ‘True North’ gave the group their highest Billboard 200 debut in their history. In the first week of release, ‘True North’ hit No. 18 on the chart, selling 18,295 copies of the album.
Before taking the ‘Jimmy Fallon’ stage last night, bassist Jay Bentley thanked fans via Bad Religion’s Facebook page:
Sitting backstage at the jimmy fallon show getting ready to play “the past is dead” tonight and we’re talking about how amazing the response to “True North” has been. it’s so humbling to be given this opportunity after 33 years, and how none of this would be possible without all of you… so it is with the utmost humility that we would like to say Thank YOU.
