The Skinny: LA’s legendary punk heroes Bad Religion are streaming their new album True North in its entirety starting today, in front of their January 22nd album release date. In anticipation of their new release, Bad Religion have announced a North American tour starting in March of 2013 with support from Against Me! and Polar Bear Club. Tickets for the tour go on-sale starting this Thursday, January 17th.

True North celebrates the power of cogent punk in the face of personal pain and adversity. It is one of the band’s most emotionally accessible albums to date. Beneath the bristling guitars and surging drums exists one of the most cathartic works of the band’s career. With True North, Bad Religion deliberately revisits and refines the fast melodic Southern California sound they helped to define on albums such as Suffer, No Control and Recipe For Hate.
