Cold As The Clay
Greg Graffin

In many ways Cold as the Clay is a highly unconventional record. First of all it combines traditional American old-time music with original rock compositions. Secondly it's offered up by Greg Graffin, an artist best known for his work with Bad Religion as one of the most successful and prolific punk rock performers in the world. Lastly, it was recorded and mixed in accordance with the raw integrity of it's origins in only eight days, with a group of talented musicians who had never played together before, utilizing inspired live takes and not much else in the way of studio contrivances.

Another great one!

Wow, Don't Be Afraid To Run was all I needed to hear to know that I HAVE to get this when it comes out, but now after listening to Talk About Suffering I know that this will be one of, if not the best albums of the year.

Intelligent Design?...

Greg-I admire your abilities as a communicator and song-writer. You have been a voice for many of the things I have felt over the years. Can't wait for the change of pace on the solo project, as well as another BR album before The Enemy puts a gag order on you!
