One of the greatest bands ever and part of the glorious trio at the birth of hardcore with Minor Threat and Black Flag, Bad Brains have announced a new album…The band who pretty well invented hardcore and laid down the template for most modern American rock music that is great also switched their style between sweet spiritual reggae and astonishing rushes of punk rock fury have returned!
recorded with the classic line up
”ËINTO THE FUTURE’ Is TO BE RELEASED NOVEMBER 19th, 2012 on Megaforce Records.
“[Bad Brains' debut is] the best punk/hardcore album of all time.”
- Adam Yauch
“Seeing them live was, without a doubt, always one of the most intense, powerful experiences you could ever have”Â¦ They made me absolutely determined to become a musician, they basically changed my life, and changed the lives of everyone who saw them.”Â – Dave Grohl
Included on the album a remix of “Peace Be Unto Thee”Â, a tribute to longtime fan, friend and producer Adam Yauch, who marked the Bad Brains’ return to form by producing their previous album ”ËBuild a Nation’.
Iconic hardcore / punk band Bad Brains will release ”ËInto the Future’ (November 19TH / Megaforce), their new album featuring the classic lineup of H.R., Darryl Jenifer, Dr. Know and Earl Hudson.
“‘Into The Future’ is the purest Bad Brains recordings since the ROIR cassette,”Â says bassist Darryl Jenifer. “Our self-produced record shines with a true sense of freedom and musical experimentation, with blends of soulful backgrounds meshed with blistering hardcore and metal riffs, with classic dub.”
For ”ËInto the Future’, the band reached back to the early-80s, ROIR cassette days for the sound and energy that defined the band. While searching for something epic and different, the band decided to self-produce the album and capture that spirit only the band itself could find.
The Bad Brains helped define American punk and hardcore music.
Considered to be the holy grail of punk rock, they are one of the definitive American punk groups who garner the same respect as Sex Pistols, Black Flag, The Ramones and The Clash.
