Bad Religion share “The Profane Rights of Man,” promising more new music
Bad Religion are currently in the studio working on new music, and they’ve just released their second new single of 2018. Following the sorta-novelty “The Kids Are Alt-Right,” new song “The Profane Rights Of Man” is just as political but a lot more serious. Greg Graffin says, “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. In sum, the song is about Bad Religion’s belief in a secular basis for the protection of human rights for all people.” “The Profane Rights of Man” sounds like classic Bad Religion, and it reminds you that — despite the many imitators — nobody does it quite like them. Listen below.
Bad Religion have just one upcoming show at the moment, Surf City Blitz, which goes down in Huntington Beach, CA later this month.
Guitarist Brian Baker (also of Minor Threat and Dag Nasty) has also been busy with his new supergroup Beach Rats (fronted by Lifetime’s Ari Katz and also featuring members of The Bouncing Souls), who play their first Brooklyn show in November.
