Circuit Overload

July 27, 2010

This might be July, but it sure feels like Christmas.  The BR Page announced yesterday that Bad Religion’s new album The Dissent of Man is now available for preorder.  Excitement overload.  You can get it in CD or LP form, by itself or as part of a bundle, in the Epitaph Store.

It gets better.  Today they announced that one of the tracks has surfaced on KROQ.  It’s called “The Devil in Stitches” and it looks like it will be the first single.  Mr. Brett himself sent The BR Page a link to stream it, so get over there and listen!

To be honest I’m not sure what to make of it.  It’s very poppy and it seems disjointed.  The music doesn’t quite fit the words.  Usually there is a flow to their lyrics that tells a story.   I’m still trying to find it here.

But I’m not worried.  First impressions are usually misleading, and when I listened to it the second time it started to make more sense.  Maybe it’s staggeringly brilliant and I just don’t know it yet.  I hope so, because I still fucking love Bad Religion.

63 days and counting until The Dissent of Man hits our ears.  Awesome.
