Punk band, Bad Religion has released a new track to coincide with today’s swearing in of a new US President. The track called “Emancipation Of The Mind” is an outtake from the band’s 2019 album Age of Unreason and houses calls for reason and open-mindedness during a deeply divided time in the United State’s history.
“I think the song really is a celebration of enlightenment values that can be cultivated through enthusiastic learning and open-mindedness,” says co-songwriter and vocalist Greg Graffin. “So often we’re told what to think. But learning how to think (as opposed to learning what to think) is a true feeling of emancipation from the constraints of indoctrination that are so commonplace in our society.”
You can listen to the track below along with a playlist the band has put together.
