Bad Religion rages against the machine tonight in Utah

When the punk-rock band Bad Religion 's latest album, "True North," was released in January, it debuted inside the top-20 on Billboard album charts, the highest position of the band's 34-year career.

"We're definitely not going to complain, after putting blood, sweat and tears into it," said drummer Brooks Wackerman, who at 36 is the self-described "baby" of the band. "It's reassuring that people still enjoy what we do."

In high school, Wasserman was a fan of the famously activist group. "Bad Religion was very high on a pedestal with its politics and lyrics," he said. "I always thought that the band was in a league of its own because of its stands." But when Wasserman was invited to join in 2002, he admitted that he didn't know as much about politics and causes. "It's eye-opening being in this band, with government and religion. It's very inspiring."

The Bronx and Polar Bear Club will open.
