DS Exclusive: The Live Music Year In Pictures (Anarchopunk)

Oi!!!! Here’s some facts, Jack:  2018 is (almost) over. I didn’t manage to shoot as many shows this year. I moved from my home in Los Angeles to the Mile High City of Denver, Colorado. I got a new kitten. I bought a new car. I started a new job. Now, here’s some stats, Jill (I didn’t want anyone to feel left out):  Despite all of that, I still shot well over one hundred sets from about twenty-five different shows/festivals. Moral of the story:  I’m fucking tired.

Check out a gallery of some of my favorite pictures from 2018, below!



Bad Religion Announces Release Date Announcement for New Album

As many of you will already know, melodic punk stalwarts Bad Religion have a new record on the way. We reported as such in November. At the time, however, we were given no indication what the time frame would be for the release.

It has since emerged that the legendary group will make an official announcement about when the album will be released in January 2019. The band’s guitarist, Brett Gurewitz, announced the announcement to LA radio station KROQ last week. The title of the record is unknown for now but it is expected to feature recent single “My Sanity”.

The release will be the 17th album by Bad Religion and their first full-length effort with guitarist Mike Dimkich from The Cult and drummer Jamie Miller of …And you will know us by the trail of dead.

The previous release from Bad Religion 2013’s True North.

Stream new Bad Religion song “Profane Rights Of Man”

Although Bad Religion is still actively in the studio working on their new album, that isn’t stopping them from bringing us a brand new single titled “The Profane Rights of Man.” A worried look at the state of human rights in America, “The Profane Rights of Man” continues the band’s long-held commitment to incisively topical songwriting.

Listen to “The Profane Rights of Man” by Bad Religion below.

“The Profane Rights Of Man” featuring Bad Religion’s signature breakneck rhythms, mournful harmonies, and serpentine guitar work, was produced by Brett Gurewitz and mixed by Gurewitz and Joe Barresi. The timely song is based on a historical document from 1789.

Vocalist and songwriter Greg Graffin explains, “The song is based on the 1789 document, “The Universal Rights of Man.” Since we’re a band that has a longstanding tradition of championing the enlightenment, we wanted to emphasize that our society is based on a profane rather than a sacred theological justification for human rights. In sum, the song is about Bad Religion’s belief in a secular basis for the protection of human rights for all people.”

On October 27, Bad Religion will play at the Surf City Blitz festival in Huntington Beach, CA.



DS Exclusive: Riot Fest Recap – Day Three (Alkaline Trio, Bad Religion, Bouncing Souls and more)

Day 3 started off rocky. FEAR went on stage play the debut album “FEAR: The Record”in its entirety. Actually, they started the set with “Fuck You, Let’s Rodeo”and “Honor and Obey”from their 1995 album “Have Another Beer with FEAR.” FEAR fans will tell you that the band is, well, not exactly PC, so it was interesting how the crowd will react to the album. Well, no need to worry because singer Lee Ving changed some of the words in certain songs to be a bit more friendly. But self-censorship was only one of the problems with the set, as it seemed the band didn’t do that much practicing, with the guitarist struggling during “Sanatorium”and Ving missed his cue on, well, quite a few songs, actually. A weird thing considering he’s been singing these songs for over thirty years.

 

By comparison Suicidal Tendencies were the complete opposite. The California thrash punk legends blazed through most of their self-title debut album (they didn’t play “I Want More”) completely annihilating the captive crowd with Mike running back and forth on stage, pumping his fists like a fucking lunatic off his meds. Naturally, with this much going on, one of the larger pits I’ve seen that day formed. Songs from “Fascist Pig” to “I Shot Reagan”were played with such ferocity that you forget singer Mike Muir is in his 50’s. The set ended with Mike bringing kids and adults on stage as he performed the classic “Institutionalized.”

The three-day Riot Fest experience was…good. Not great, but it didn’t suck either. There were some definite peaks and valleys in regards to the performances. Overall, I did enjoy it. Hopefully, they work out the kinks next year.

In the interim, please check out some images from a few of the other Day 3 acts, including Bad Religion, Beach Rats, Bouncing Souls and Alkaline Trio!

Bad Religion to enter the studio in October?

Bad Religion bassist Jay Bentley apparently revealed to the Croatian website Muzika that the band will enter the studio in October to start recording their long-awaited new album for a spring 2019 release.

Jay also stated in the same interview that the band’s recently-released new song “The Kids Are Alt-Right” and that the new album will sound different than that song. Translated by Dying Scene, Jay said, “This is probably different from what I’ve ever heard of this collective. I mean, we only recorded two songs, one that everyone heard and one that does not sound like it.”

The follow-up to 2013’s True North will be Bad Religion’s first studio album with Mike Dimkich (replacing Greg Hetson) on guitar and Jamie Miller (replacing Brooks Wackerman) on drums.

In summation: AP and Bob are lazy pieces of human garbage who suck major ass and this episode has TONS of great music and scene news! So, stream it, in all of it’s glory, below!

Bad Religion to hit the studio this fall or late summer

Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz recently offered LA Weekly an update on the band’s long-awaited new album, which is expected to be released soon. While talking about their recently-released new single “The Kids Are Alt-Right“, Brett stated:

“It’s a scathing indictment of the conservative youth movement, and we have a brilliant lyrics video done by a young Spanish artist named Antoni Sendra (aka Podenco) — he’s a phenomenal visual artist. We’re writing for a new album, recording this fall or late summer. No release date announced yet, but we should have an album’s worth of ‘Fuck Trump’ songs pretty soon. It’s exactly what we need.”

The follow-up to 2013’s True North will be Bad Religion’s first studio album with Mike Dimkich (replacing Greg Hetson) on guitar and Jamie Miller (replacing Brooks Wackerman) on drums.

Bad Religion streams new song “The Kids Are Alt-Right”

Seemingly out of nowhere Bad Religion has unleashed a brand new track upon the interwebs. “The Kids Are Alt-Right” is a nod to The Who’s classic “The Kids Are Alright” but with an obvious political jab at the alt-right movement. Might not be the best BR song you’ve heard but it’s got fun lyrics! Check it out below.

Bad Religion appear to be in the studio working on their follow-up album to 2013’s True North. This will be their first album with Mike Dimkich (replacing Greg Hetson) on guitar and Jamie Miller (replacing Brooks Wackerman) on drums.

When the record will be released is unknown, but we’ll keep you updated as details arise.
