Bad Religion initially said they'd be postponing their 40th anniversary tour with Alkaline Trio and War On Women, but now it's straight-up cancelled. They write:

We are grateful and humbled by the unwavering support from all our fans, every venue and festival that invited us to play, and especially those who have invested resources to see us perform live all over the world this year. As everyone is well aware, the ongoing hazard of Covid-19 has made it unsafe to gather in large groups. Therefore, to maintain the health of our fans, crew, and ourselves, Bad Religion will not be playing any shows in 2020. You may claim refunds or vouchers depending on the market; please check in with your local promoter and point of purchase.

We will carefully monitor how this pandemic progresses; when it is safe for all of us to gather together, we will return. Until then, be safe, and take care of each other.

Hopefully they -- and the rest of the music world -- will be able to get back on the road next year.

Meanwhile, we just posted a 1993 live video of Bad Religion in a list of 10 great '90s punk live videos, and you can watch that below while you wait for Bad Religion to tour again. Also, guitarist Brian Baker's new supergroup Fake Names will release their debut album on Epitaph next week.

Alkaline Trio recently released a new EP (and we included one of its songs as one of the five best punk songs of March), and Dan Andriano will perform a solo acoustic set on the Riot Fest At Home livestream on May 7.
