For the unrelenting and demonstrably vital crew of Bad Religion, the story of "The New America" is about more than a distant point on our country's horizon. It is about a creative journey into the heart of their own punk rock origins and thought-provoking purpose. The group's fifth label release, The New America was recorded on the Hawaiian island of Kauai with the famed Todd Rundgren in the producer's chair. For the group's singer and songwriter, Greg Graffin Rundgren's participation on the recording effectively brought him together with one of his musical heroes and life-long influences. With the maverick rock star and one of the underground's true originals in the role of project mentor, Graffin rose to new heights of creativity, performance, passion, and perspective. In the process of moving forward to carve out one of the band's most dynamically alluring, energized, and communicative albums of their now 20 year-long career, Graffin reunited with former guitarist and one of Bad Religion's founding members Brett Gurewitz, to write the driving, soaring "Believe It".
