Bad Religion

Bad Religion have been pumping out some of punk rock’s greatest music for well over 30 years. With no signs of slowing down, the band just released ‘True North,’ adding yet another brilliant album to their almost unparalleled discography. Shortly before their recent performance on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,’ bassist Jay Bentley, drummer Brooks Wackerman and guitarist Brian Baker stopped by Loudwire’s studio for an exclusive interview.

In Part 1 of our chat with Bad Religion, we discuss ‘True North’ along with the album’s standout tracks and “moral compass” thesis. We also spoke with the band about religious institutions in general, with each member of Bad Religion offering a different take on how they view organized divinity along with views on its place in modern society … but don’t worry, there’s plenty of silliness showcased as well to balance the interview out.

Here are some of the tweets; some of which have since been deleted.

And Travis replies…
