In a recent post by Bad Religion, they explain the measures they went through to protect the chances of their new album from being leaked. Read more:

One of the things we didn?t do this year is send out a lot of albums to get reviewed by magazines because previously when we sent out like 500 demo CDs for review, one of them would invariably end up on the internet and the entire album is downloaded three months previous to release,” laments Jay.

“We decided to release things through the Epitaph site or the Myspace page, it seems more of our fan base is there that we can kind of target, rather than a bunch of magazines who don?t care what we are doing.

So get your listening on and listen to these new tracks by a few artists:

Bad Religion – Heroes & Martyrs, off their new album New Maps Of Hell

Bedlight For Blueeyes – City And The Ghost, off their new album Life On Life’s Terms

Robot Academy Films, an independent production company set up by two 22 year old Australian’s are currently in production for a film on the 90’s punk rock explosion titled One Nine Nine Four.

The documentary which is set to be a full length feature documents the birth, growth and explosion of punk rock in the 90’s and features interviews with bands such as NOFX, the Offspring, Blink 182, Rancid, Bad Religion, Lagwagon and many more.

The 2 film makers have been residing in Los Angeles since January shooting interviews and collecting archival footage before returning to Australia this month to start editing. The film will be narrated by Tony Hawk and is yet to have distribution or a release date but will hit the festival circuit in 2008.

A very rough teaser trailer featuring Fat Mike, Green Day, Rancid, Scott Russo is available online.
