Bad Religion, Tiger Army & The Briggs to play benefit

The historic Santa Monica Civic will host rock pioneers Bad Religion with special guests Tiger Army and The Briggs for one unprecedented concert on April 6 benefiting Heal the Bay.

The joining together of these three bands combined with the backdrop of the Santa Monica Bay is the perfect setting for this special event. Heal the Bay ( is a nonprofit environmental organization dedicated to making Southern California coastal waters and watersheds, including Santa Monica Bay, safe, healthy and clean for people and marine life.

Headlining the night is Bad Religion whom has been diligently working in the studio on their fourteenth album which is slated for release on July 10th. After relentless touring over the past few years in support of 2004's The Empire Strikes First, songwriting principals and co-founders Brett Gurewitz (guitar) and Greg Graffin (vocals) have teamed up with Grammy-nominated producer Joe Baresi (Tool, Queens of the Stone Age) for the band's latest effort.

Southern California phenomenon Tiger Army will provide direct support to Bad Religion. Their upcoming album Music From Regions Beyond, hailed by Alternative Press as one of this year’s “Most Anticipated Albums,” is their definitive work. Produced by Jerry Finn (AFI, Blink 182, Rancid), the album follows worldwide touring with AFI, Social Distortion, Rancid and Morrissey. It includes the lead single "Forever Fades Away" (featuring AFI's Davey Havok and longtime Morrissey collaborator Alain Whyte).

Opening the night is none other then The Briggs. The Briggs cut their teeth in the Southern California music scene by patching together an urgent, swaggering and infectious brew from the best parts of rock, punk, oi!, folk and reggae. Tickets for this event are already on sale. To participate in the special KROQ pre-sale, go to for more information.
