SoCal punk revivalists Bad Religion release their fourteenth(!) studio effort this summer, the warm-and-cozy titled New Maps Of Hell. The record spans 16 tracks and features Joe Barresi on production (Queens Of The Stone Age, L7), and you can hear Joe’s touch on the melodic, compressed-sludge hook of “Honest Goodbye,” the first track to rise from Hell. Have a listen here.

New Maps Of Hell is out 7/10 on Epitaph.

    and no one was left unmoved.

  2. Stereogum is now officially the lamest website ever. Unsubfuckingscribe.

  3. If it were an honest goodbye it wouldn’t have been with a song like this.

    aww.. i still like bad religion. they’re the only holdover from my teenage punk days.

    Same here, one of the few holdovers. Ever since I heard ‘You’ in Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, I sort of loved these guys.

    Keep making posts about these guys, they are awesome and there’s nothing wrong having favorites from the relatively mainstream.

    im glad BR are still rockin …they need a keyboard or drum machine…socal punk sound is so played… sounds like the soundtrack to some wack teen show…

    its a bit of a stretch to call them ‘revivalists’ since they have been together since like 1980.

    there’s no shame in posting about BR. they’re still a fucking great band — especially live. i’m hoping the album is as good as the last few. this song sounds a bit too much like weezer, tho.

  13. Leave Bad Religion alone, i like all there songs and own all 14 albums by them, and they remain probably my fav band(infact im wearing a bad religion shirt as i post this, the one with the cross-buster logo) if you dont like it fair but dont say no one should listen to it or anyhting like that.
