In 1983 Bad Religion released "Into The Unknown," a slower tempo, prog-rock album featuring heavy use of electric keyboards. The album was not well received and the band quickly returned to playing punk rock on their next release.


Rejoice, old-school pop-punk fans! The Queers have re-released another one of their classic albums on vinyl. This time around it’s their third full-length Beat Off, which was originally released in 1994 through the now-defunct Lookout! Records. In addition to having a fancy new cover (seen above), the 20-year-old record has been completely remixed and remastered by the almighty Mass Giorgini, and it sounds phenomenal!

Head over here to pick up a copy of the LP (limited to 400 copies on black vinyl with a hand-screened sleeve) before they’re all gone. And be sure to thank Mike Park at Asian Man Records for making this possible.

The Queers recently announced plans to re-record and reissue Beyond The Valley… and Punk Rock Confidential. Their latest album Back To The Basement was released in 2010 through Asian Man.
