This just in! Our favorite bad boy punk rastas of Bad Brains are releasing a new album this summer. No seriously, all jokes aside. It's really happening. Posted on their social networking sites today was this message: "Working on NEW ALBUM! We're pleased to announce that we have recently been holed up in upstate NY working on new material for a 2011 release. "Stand by for the 'realist' we have ever written," says Darryl. According to their site, the new album is going to be channeling progressive elements and is expected for release in late-summer 2011. The new album will be the band's ninth studio album and is coming after their 2007 release of "Build a Nation." We can't wait to see what the gents have in store for us!! The iconic punk band is also making an appearance for the first time in the band's career at SXSW on the Vans Showcase at Emo's Main Room on March 16, 2011.
