"Age Of Unreason" was released on May 3 via on Epitaph Records.
Since BAD RELIGION's formative years they have steadfastly advocated for humanism, reason, and individualism. Now, when these values are in decline and nationalism and bigotry are on the rise, the group's message has never been more essential. "Age Of Unreason" delivers a powerful and inspired response — a political and deeply personal treatise on all they believe in.
The songs on "Age Of Unreason" are both furious and meticulously crafted. There are references to contemporary events; racist rallies, Trump's election, the erosion of the middle class, Colin Kaepernick's protest, alternative facts, conspiracy theories, and there are homages to the literary and philosophical works that have long inspired the band.
"Age Of Unreason" is BAD RELIGION's 17th studio album and was co-produced by Carlos de la Garza.
This record is both a dire warning and testament to resilience. The overall message being — seek truth about the world and oneself.
