Bad Brains working on new album

Seminal hardcore punk act Bad Brains is currently working on a new album and follow-up to their 2012 release, Into The Future, and will enter the studio "any day now." The news comes via a feature by music writer Joel Gausten, who interviewed Bad Brains frontman H.R. to discuss his reaction to the book and documentary, "Finding Joseph I." An excerpt relative to the band's future reads as follows:
Naturally, one very big question remains: What does the future look like for the Bad Brains? "The future looks bright!" replies H.R. "We got a great new manager. We just came from doing a little tour over the summer, and we're just waiting for the weather to break and we'll be on our way to do more festival work." Now a five-piece band following the recent addition of full-time second guitarist Chogyi Lama ("Man, can that dude throw down!" says H.R.), the Bad Brains have new music on the way — 35 years after their legendary self-titled cassette changed everything. "Any day now, we're scheduled to go into the studio and do some more work on a new album. The greatest album that we did, 'Into The Future', came off great, and I really like working with the fellas." If there's ever a time for new Bad Brains music, it's now. With America in a state of political, financial and spiritual disarray, the Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) expounded by the band is in high demand. While the realities of modern life are difficult for many, H.R. insists that there is still plenty of hope to be found on stages and records around the world. "I think that people overall need to listen to more good music!" he laughed. "What they need to do is put down the sword and learn to be forgiving towards each other, just give a chance to let peace rule over their bad, negative feelings and be more positive with listening to good music and being supportive of the good scene that's happening."
