Bad Religion Kicks Off 30th Anniversary Celebration w/ So-Cal Tour

2010 marks the 30th anniversary
of quintessential Los Angeles punk rock pioneers Bad Religion, and to
kick off the yearlong celebration the band will perform music spanning
their storied career at multiple-night shows at House of Blues in Los
Angeles, Anaheim, San Diego and Las Vegas beginning March 17.  The
band also announces that they are currently writing new music with
plans to head to the studio this spring and release their 15th studio
album later this fall, culminating their anniversary celebration.

Formed in 1980 in the suburbs of Los Angeles by teenage friends;
guitarist Brett Gurewitz, bassist Jay Bentley and singer Greg Graffin,
with the additions of Greg Hetson (1984-Present), Brian Baker
(1994-Present) and Brooks Wackerman (2001-Present), Bad Religion have
become synonymous with intelligent and provocative West Coast punk
rock and are considered one of the most influential and important
bands in the genre.  Over the past 3 decades the band 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 greatest feeling about this anniversary is that it is happening
at all,” says Graffin.  “I’m mostly uplifted by the fact that a
vibrant and evolving punk scene still inspires young people all over
the world.  If Bad Religion somehow serves as a symbol for the lasting
importance of punk, then I am satisfied beyond words by reaching this
milestone.”

With 14 studio albums, countless worldwide tours and sold out shows,
crossbusters tattooed, stitched and worn globally and a universal
community of fans among other accolades, Bad Religion have earned
their spot in punk rock history and will continue the celebration of
their distinguished career with extensive touring, new website,
exclusive merchandise, surprise releases and a new album in 2010.
