We presented them one song off of our latest album and asked them what they would do with a certain section if I (Jason Aalon) never sang in said section. We asked them to explore with free reign utilizing their particular style and prose. The point of this was not only to share our gratitude and adoration for other bands/artists, but to work with other artists...

You donít need to be a Bad Religion fan to make Christmas ironic. If you really talk about our intellectual heritage, Bad Religion is not ironic Ė modern society is...
I always thought the Epitaph Christmas party would be awesome to attend ... but now that Ronnie Radke wants to have a "face to face" with Oli Sykes? Tickets to that would sell out faster than a Brand New show. I think both guys should have to wear different colored Christmas sweaters at this and make it a modern West Side Story.
Epitaph Records is streaming Survive This!'s new album on YouTube. This is the album that includes a song called "Pardon Me" which contains lyrical gems like, "just wait until I get my hands on you, bleed bitch bleed [...] I've never hit a woman but you're wearing me thin."

And thatís the one where Bill was like ĎYeah, this is good, this is the best song you have. Letís figure out how to incorporate drums into it and then it will be good.í It took a long time, it was funny because Zack whoís always recorded with us, Zack from Dear Landlord, he said that it was great to finally record a song that doesnít sound like every single...
