Bad Religion continues to be a vital band, in election years and non-election years. The mind and voice of Greg Graffin still makes you think about the lyrics he sings and love the catchy vocal melodies. With new drummer Jamie Miller in tow and a new record set for release in 2017, you will hear many pop-punk barn burners, and not necessarily obvious ones. The band has a vast catalog and they aren't afraid to dig deep into it to find songs that will delight. Whether it's "Television," "Best for You" or "Let Them Eat War," you cannot deny how strong these songs are and this band is. With Against Me! and Dave Hause along for the tour, this won't be a punk rock salute to years gone by. It will be a salute to how vital punk rock still is.
