True North boasts 16 songs in a mere 35 minutes. Why so quick and concise?

After their humble beginnings as a punk band aimed at satisfying disaffected youth, the band had slowly morphed into a big “American rock band” with big radio hits under their belts, explained Brett Gurewitz to Spin. “By the time we put out Stranger Than Fiction in ’94, we were playing big, sprawling anthems. We had a gold record. We had a radio hit or two. And that’s allowed. Groups and artists need to evolve, and that was also really exciting, but that’s not who we are, and that’s not what we were ever aiming for. All we ever wanted to be was an L.A. hardcore band.”

Gurewitz added, “I’m very proud of the new record. I’ve never worked on a Bad Religion record I’m embarrassed of. Well, other than [1983's prog-oriented] Into the Unknown. But the other 15, there’s not a single one I’m embarrassed of, which is saying something. But I’m particularly proud of the new one.”

True North, streaming below, is available in stores today.
