Christmas Songs full album stream!

Update (Oct. 29): The full album is now streamed by Epitaph. 



Update (Sept.17): It appears that the album will also be released on 12" vinyl. As usual this one comes with a bonus cd of the album. The release date of this LP is November 26.


Update (Sept. 10): Epitaph just confirmed the release on Twitter. The artwork has also been published by both Epitaph and the band.



Update (Sept. 8): An anonymous source has confirmed that the 8 Christmas songs are indeed new studio recordings!


Over the years Bad Religion has played many Christmas songs, mostly during the KROQ Almost Accoustic Christmas shows. Although no official word from Epitaph, it now seems that a "Christmas Songs"  cd will be released on October 29. 


According to MusicTAP the album will have nine classic holiday favorites: 



Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
O Come All Ye Faithful
O Come, O Come Emmanuel
White Christmas
Little Drummer Boy
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
What Child Is This?
Angels We Have Heard On High
American Jesus (Andy Wallace Mix)



It's hard to tell what this will turn out to be: a compilation of the existing recordings or all new studio recordings... In particular, the last song (American Jesus) has already been released before on a 1993 American Jesus promo cd and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen was on the 1997 Holiday Sampler. Only time will tell.

in retrospect, that cocaine sure did ruin a lot of good country music in the '70s
