Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz has announced through his twitter account that the long-running punk legends are getting ready to hit the studio this week to record their hotly-anticipated new album. He explains, “threw me a going away [to the studio to record] party and all my friends hung with me tonight – thx everybody, I love you guys”.
No word on an official title or release date yet but is likely due out this fall. The album will be a follow up to 2007’s New Maps of Hell.
In addition to a new album, Bad Religion has been recording a live album during their spring 2010 tour and will be releasing it for free to loyal fans as a “thank you”. The album, 30 Years Live, will be released on May 18th on Epitaph Records. To receive a copy, click here.
