Press ReleaseThe iconic punk band Bad Brains will make an appearance for the first time in the band's career at SXSW 2011 at Van's Showcase at Emo's Main Room on March 16, 2011. Bassist Darryl Jenifer comments on the forthcoming experience: "There should be a SXSW in every city, everyday. Austin is a great music town with positive vibes."

The band is also pleased to announce that they have recently been holed up in NY with all original members working on new material for a 2011 release.

Nothing is conventional with Bad Brains, nor is the writing process. So, the band is jamming and reaching for something epic and different. "Stand by for the 'realist' we have ever written," continues Jennifer. The album is said to be channeling progressive elements and Megaforce expects the album to be released in late-summer 2011.

Considered to be the "holy grail" of punk rock, Bad Brains are one of the definitive American punk groups who garner the same respect as Sex Pistols, Black Flag, The Ramones and The Clash. Produced by long time fan, Adam Yauch (MCA of the Beastie Boys), the band's last album, Build A Nation, was a return to form for the band that helped define American Punk and Hardcore music. The album featured all the original members of the group: HR, Darryl Jenifer, Dr. Know and Earl Hudson.
