Punk rock legends Bad Religion present with "What Are We Standing For" a previously unreleased track. The song was created during the recording sessions of the current studio album "Age of Unreason", which was released on Epitaph records in 2019. "What Are We Standing For" denounces police violence and racism and again marks the strong political standing of the band.“In this time of tribal nationalism, dissent, as a form of political speech, is vital to democracy”, sagt co-Songwriter und Gitarrist Brett Gurewitz.

Bad Religion, formed in 1980 in the suburbs of Los Angeles, has become synonymous with intelligent and provocative West Coast punk rock and are considered one of the most influential and important bands in the genre. Bad Religion has continually pushed social boundaries and questioned authority and beliefs armed only with propulsive guitars, charging drumbeats, thoughtful lyrics and an undying will to inspire and provoke anyone who will listen. 

The band’s critically acclaimed 17th studio album Age of Unreason offers a fiery and intensely relevant musical response to the times, with songs that address a myriad of socio-political maladies, including conspiracy theories, racist rallies, Trump’s election, the erosion of the middle class, alternative facts and more. There is a stylistic consistency to the band’s iconic and influential sound - hard fast beats, big hooks and rousing choruses, yet each new song remains distinctive, utilizing composition, melody and lyrics to deliver a unique narrative consistent with the band’s longstanding humanist worldview.
