California punk luminaries Bad Religion released their sixteenth studio album, 'True North', in January on Epitaph. Now you can get an exclusive first look at the video for the album's title cut. It opens with a young punk in a room covered with Government Issue and Circle Jerks posters as he drops the needle on Bad Religion's new LP. After lacing up his Chuck Taylors, grabbing his drumsticks and bashing along to the song on his knees, the punk protagonist finishes suiting up and heads out for more rockage – waiting, of course, for the track to end first.
Director Zach Merck explained the concept:
I wanted the video to simply capture a feeling that every single one of us has had throughout our years. This is a band that has directly influenced generation after generation of punk rockers, and punk music in its truest form is something that we have and understand that the masses never will. There is something very special and personal about discovering the music on a new album, especially with Bad Religion, so that's what this video concept became - that intense private moment that happens to all of us….alone with our music, inspired by the lyrics...us against the world.Click here to watch the video.
