Washington-based hardcore punks Bad Brains have revealed that their new album will feature a tribute to late Beastie Boys’ member Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch.
Yauch, who passed away earlier this year, produced the band’s 2007 effort Build a Nation and once described their self-titled 1982 debut record as “the best punk/hardcore album of all time”.
The band’s classic lineup of H.R., Darryl Jenifer, Dr. Know and Earl Hudson have teamed up for the new LP, which has been described by Jenifer as a record that “shines with a true sense of freedom and musical experimentation, with blends of soulful backgrounds meshed with blistering hardcore and metal riffs, with classic dub”.
