Brooks Wackerman, the former skin banger for Suicidal Tendencies and Vandals, is now the new drummer for the newly reformed Bad Religion. The Religion have penned 18 new jams for their upcoming album (some of which will be dropped) that Wackerman must learn along with the old jams as he will tour with the crew in support of their new album. BR last blessed us with recorded music in the form of a "greatest hits" record in 1995 with All Ages. The new album is rumored to be named The New America with a release date of late 2001 on Epitaph.
