Bad Religion to release Christmas album
LA hardcore punks to put out some festive cheer with their interpretation of well-known carols
The band will be bringing their abrasive riffs to a collection of festival carols aptly titled 'Christmas Songs', due for release on October 28. The nine-track album features seasonal classics such as 'White Christmas' and 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing', as well as a remix of the band's own track 'American Jesus'.
The 'Christmas Songs' tracklisting is as follows:
'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing?'
'O Come All Ye Faithful?'
'O Come, O Come Emmanuel?'
'Little Drummer Boy?'
'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen?'
'What Child Is This??'
'Angels We Have Heard On High?'
'American Jesus (Andy Wallace Mix)'
Bad Religion formed in LA in 1979. While frontman Greg Graffin has remained a constant in the band, the lineup has changed several times. Its current incarnation features Graffin alongside Brett Gurewitz and Jay Bentley. The band have released 16 studio albums to date – their last LP was 'True North', which came out in January 2013.
