Welcome to Part 2 of our intriguing interview with Jay Bentley, Brooks Wackerman and Brian Baker of Bad Religion. In this second half of our chat, the trio talk about how their outside projects help keep them together, their past histories with former bands, their greatest influences + more.
Only a few days after Against Me! revealed that they were forced to drop off Bad Religion's 2013 North American tour, a brilliant replacement has been announced. Los Angeles punk rock act the Bronx have been confirmed to open the majority of Bad Religion's tour dates, beginning March 22 in Washington D.C.
To celebrate Bad Religion's new album 'True North' and the band's 2013 North American tour, we've got an awesome prize pack from Epitaph Records to give away! We're teaming up with Diffuser.fm to give away a copy of 'True North' on CD, a Bad Religion t-shirt and a hoodie marked with the classic 'Crossbuster' logo to one lucky fan.
Punk rock legends Bad Religion are scheduled to begin touring North America on March 8 to promote their 2013 album, 'True North,' and to entertain fans with over three decades worth of quality tunes. Against Me! and Polar Bear Club were set in place to open for Bad Religion, but unfortunately, Against Me! have announced that they must cancel their upcoming appearances.
Bad Religion have been pumping out some of punk rock's greatest music for well over 30 years. With no signs of slowing down, the band just released 'True North,' adding yet another brilliant album to their almost unparalleled discography. Shortly before their recent performance on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,' bassist Jay Bentley, drummer Brooks Wackerman and guitarist Brian Baker stopped by Loudwire's studio for an exclusive interview.
Bad Religion are to punk rock what Iron Maiden are to heavy metal. Along with both groups brandishing unparalleled quality within their genres in over three-decade-long discographies, both Bad Religion and Iron Maiden are storytellers at heart who paint vivid visual pictures through their music. Fans are able to immerse themselves into the worlds birthed by Bad Religion with even greater intensity than their own personal realities, which is a testament to how many pairs of eyes Bad Religion are able to lend their fans for short bursts of multidimensional insight.
