“Into The Future” is the purest Bad Brains recordings since the ROIR cassette,” says bassist Darryl Jenifer. “Our self-produced record 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.”
For ‘Into the Future’, the band reached back to the early-80s, ROIR cassette days for the sound and energy that defined the band. While searching for something epic and different, the band decided to self-produce the album and capture that spirit only the band itself could find. Included on the album a remix of “Peace Be Unto Thee”, a tribute to longtime fan, friend and producer Adam Yauch, who marked the Bad Brains’ return to form by producing their previous album ‘Build a Nation’.
The Bad Brains helped define American punk and hardcore music.
Considered to be the holy grail of punk rock, they are one of the definitive American punk groups who garner the same respect as Sex Pistols, Black Flag, The Ramones and The Clash.
