Acclaimed punk rock idols, Bad Religion, have premiered a brand new single from their forthcoming album, "Age Of Unreason", out on May 3rd via Epitaph Records. The song, titled "Do The Paranoid Style", is inspired by historian Richard Hofstadter’s 1964 essay “The Paranoid Style in American Politics” and song compares contemporary right wing conspiracy theorizing to a feverish dance craze. The accompanying video directed by Dan Fusselman depicts mid-century American propaganda film imagery against a backdrop of rock n’ roll dancing.  

According to guitarist and co-songwriter, Brett Gurewitz “When fringe groups blame shadowy forces for their problems it is, at worst, delusional.  But when those holding the levers of power do the same thing, it’s not delusion, it’s a method of delegitimizing the opposition. It’s a tool of authoritarianism.”
