BAD RELIGION: New Single To Receive Digital Release

In anticipation of their forthcoming album, "New Maps of Hell", punk veterans BAD RELIGION will release their new song "Honest Goodbye" as a digital single on June 12. The track will be available on all major download services.

Co-written by founding members Brett Gurewitz and Greg Graffin, "Honest Goodbye" is inspired by the life and crimes of Perry Smith, the murderer made famous by Truman Capote's classic novel "In Cold Blood". "The song questions how a man with seemingly gentle and artistic sensibilities comes to commit brutally heinous crimes," explains Gurewitz. "It's an emotional song to me that delves into the humanity of forgiveness and retribution."

Currently in rotation on the world famous KROQ, "Honest Goodbye" is replete with the classic BAD RELIGION sound fans have come to love over the years. Featuring poignant lyrics, crisp harmonies, rhythm-rocking riffs and thick crunchy bass, "Honest Goodbye" adds a dash of edgy anthemic pop to "New Maps of Hell"'s aggressive sound.

"New Maps of Hell" is set for release on July 10, but fans can download the new single beginning June 12 and hear it live this summer when BAD RELIGION hits the road with the 2007 Warped Tour.
