Check out Bad Religion’s new tune, ‘The Profane Rights Of Man’
Bad Religion appear to well and truly back, with the group releasing a brand new single today, ‘The Profane Rights Of Man’.
It’s been a quiet few years for Bad Religion fans, with the group’s last album, True North, being released back in 2013. Currently the longest gap between studio albums for the punk veterans, it seems as this drought could be over rather soon, with the band releasing another new single today.
Earlier this year, Bad Religion seemed to be hinting at new music, posting images of band members in the studio, although they didn’t actually confirm that new tunes were on the way.
However, just a couple of months later, the band released their first new single in five years, ‘The Kids Are Alt-Right’. A topical, political number, the track featured lyrics that focused on religion, gun control, and right-wing politics, proving that they were indeed back with a vengeance.
Now, the band have released their latest single, and it’s exactly what you’d expect from the punk legends.
Clocking in at just over two minutes, ‘The Profane Rights Of Man’ is short, sweet, and packs the political punch we’ve come to expect from Bad Religion by now.
“Bad Religion’s belief in a secular basis for the protection of human rights for all people,” explained frontman Greg Graffin of the new tune.
“Since we’re a band that has a longstanding tradition of championing the enlightenment, we wanted to emphasize that this document establishes that our society is based on a profane rather than a sacred theological justification for human rights.”
Despite this new single, Bad Religion are yet to make any official statement in regards to the whereabouts of album number 17, but we can only assume it’s still in the works.
As it stands, it’s been six years since Bad Religion were last in Australia, playing as part of the 2012 Soundwave festival. Whether this new material might result a new Aussie tour remains to be seen, but we’re definitely excited to see whatever may come.
