Bad Religion has announced the impending release of "Age Of Unreason", their 17th studio album on May 3rd via Epitaph records. 

“The band has always stood for enlightenment values,” co-songwriter and guitarist Brett Gurewitz explains. “Today, these values of truth, freedom, equality, tolerance, and science, are in real danger. This record is our response.”

Drawing inspiration from current social events, conspiracy theories and alternative facts, they have crafted an album that is both "a dire warning and a testament to resilience".

Furthermore, the band has released a single for the song "Chaos From Within", which is available below. It uses the band’s iconic fast, powerful and melodic sound to examine the current border wall controversy with the lyrics, “Threat is urgent, existential / with patience wearing thin / but the danger's elemental / it’s chaos from within.” As co-songwriter and lead singer Greg Graffin says, “Throughout history, walls have been used to keep the barbarians out, but it seems to me that the truly barbaric aspect of a civilization is the chaos that comes from within.”
