Listen to Billy Talent’s short but fiery new single “Judged”
Billy Talent has released a fiery new single titled âJudgedâ – you can listen to it below.
The erratic pop-punk track – which lasts just over a minute and a half – is taken from the sixth studio album by Canadian band “Crisis Of Faith”, which is scheduled to arrive Jan. 21 via Spinefarm Records.
“Fuckin ‘asshole with that old world planâ, Leader Ben Kowalewicz leads the way, going straight to the jugular of an unnamed individual, possibly a politician. “I swear to you one day we’ll be rid of your Klan / Your hateful rhetoric is so reckless / Why can’t you see what it’s like to be. “
When the runway broke down, he added: âI’m just trying to open / The doors you close! / Your logic is so broken / And disconnected! / You think we don’t matter? / Well, we won’t give up! / Because everything will be shattered / The day you were.“
Check out “judge” below:
‘Crisis Of Faith’ will also feature the group’s recent collaboration with Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, ‘End Of Me’, as well as the singles’ Reckless Paradise ‘,’ I Beg to Differ (This Will Get Better) ‘, and’ Forgiveness I. + II ‘.

Meanwhile, Rivers Cuomo reflected on Weezer’s debut album, saying he believed the band would be “the next Nirvana.”
After forming in 1992, Weezer released his self-titled debut album – dubbed “The Blue Album” – in May 1994, a month after Kurt Cobain’s death and the disbandment of grunge heroes Nirvana.
Talk to Rolling stone for their The 500 best Rolling Stone albums podcast, Cuomo and his band mates discussed the writing and recording of the album, and how they thought it would be viewed after its release.
