In other Bad Brains-related news the iconic, all-black hardcore band will reportedly work on new music sometime this year.
During a Q&A session that followed after a showing of his Finding Joseph I documentary in New York recently, frontman H.R. announced that he and the band were going to try and get together in the fall of this year to work on new material.
“Tell us about what you’ve been talking to Dr. Know and Darryl about,” Howie Abrams, who co-wrote the Finding Joseph I: An Oral History Of H.R. from Bad Brains companion book to the documentary, said to H.R.
“Well what I’ve been talking to Doc and Darryl about was if they’d like to come together in the fall,” H.R. responded.
“You maybe didn’t hear it here first, but you heard it here early,” Abrams said. “It looks like there’s going to be some new Bad Brains music this fall, and maybe some shows.”
However, before that H.R. will be undergoing brain surgery sometime this month, in hopes of treating his SUNCT disorder. As a result of the disorder, H.R. has had to endure extreme headaches throughout the past several years of his life.
Last year, a GoFundMe page was made by H.R.’s caregiver and wife, Lori, in hopes of raising money to treat the diagnosis. Ultimately, the page surpassed its goal of $15,000, having earned over $16,000 in 10 months.
