Bad Religion have completed work on their upcoming album. The record is the follow up to 2004's The Empire Strikes First and is titled New Maps Of Hell. It is set to arrive on July 10, 2007 via Epitaph Records. The 17 song full length album was recorded at Grand Master Studios in Los Angeles, California by Grammy-nominated producer Joe Barresi (Tool, Queens of the Stone Age, Weezer).

Bassist Jay Bentley made the announcement:
We are done recording. Now it's mix time. We're getting ready to play the Santa Monica show and head down to Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico for our tour... looking forward to getting back on the road...

As previously announced the band, now in their 27th year, will support the record by headlining this summer's Warped Tour. 2006 saw the release of the Live at the Palladium DVD along with frontman Greg Graffin's solo effort Cold as the Clay.
