As previously reported, Bad Religion are now back in the studio working on their well anticipated follow-up to 2004's "The Empire Strikes First" this month at Grand Master Studios in Los Angeles, California. Slated for a June 26th release via Epitaph Records, the still-untitled new album will be produced by Grammy-nominated producer Joe Barresi (Tool, Queens of the Stone Age, Weezer).

In support of the upcoming release, Bad Religion will also headline the coveted main stage for the entire 2007 Vans Warped Tour this summer. The band recently announced a South American tour, which kicks off next month. Here are the tour dates:

04/10 - Pista Atletica - Santiago 04/12 - Quilmes Rock Festival - Buenos Aires 04/13 - Master Hall - Curitiba 04/14 - Credicard Hall - Sao Paulo 04/15 - Claro Hall - Rio de Janeiro 04/18 - Salon 21 - Mexico City

    its kind of a shame it's not a double album, but then again i find it hard to get into double albums, so i gues in a way its better can't wait for it and the tour.

    Yeah, you know, double albums are just kinda expensive to buy like $20 or more. I also can't wait for the tour either, by the way.

    I have never been as excited for an album as i am for this. My favorite band of all time, easily. And Jay is hilarious. He should be a comedian.
