Thursday night sees BAD RELIGION return to the Empress Ballroom. It will be 7 years since they first played the festival and are making a welcome return. Probably one of the most respected US Punk bands, due in part to their close association with Epitaph and all of the bands they spawned. It's easy for us Brits to lump them in with the likes of 'modern' American punk but it's worth bearing in mind that Bad Religion started in late 1979! One of the longest surviving bands who have an amazing back catalogue and still continue to be relevant to this day.
