Southern California punk icons Bad Religion recently released the new track "My Sanity" as a precursor to a still-untitled album. Most artists feel their latest work is their best, but to put in context how happy Gurewitz is with the new record, he doesn't believe every Bad Religion record is at this level. And we have other records that feel like interstitial records, which, as an artist, you're working out your craft and you're working through things," he says. Graffin is equally happy with the record, release date to come, for different reasons: He sees it as part of the progression of Bad Religion, who he feels are still getting better after nearly four decades of making music. I feel especially proud of this band because everyone plays so much better than they did 20 years ago. We've improved in many departments and I think songwriting is another example of that," Graffin says. They both cite "My Sanity" as an example of the socio-political songwriting of the new record.
