Southern California punk rockers Bad Religion are charting some new maps of their own in continued support of their 2007 album “New Maps of Hell.” Their updated itinerary will take them on a 13-city jaunt through Canada, beginning September 14 in Vancouver, BC, and ending October 1 in Halifax, NS.

Bad Religion began their extensive tour schedule last year with more than 50 shows across the United States, including a string of performances at House of Blues venues in California and Nevada.

After wrapping their U.S. dates in March, the band flew overseas for 16 European dates over the summer. The upcoming leg of the New Maps of Hell Tour signals Bad Religion’s first return to the provinces since the tour supporting 2004’s “The Empire Strikes First.”

“New Maps of Hell” is the fourteenth studio album for the group, which got its start with the 1982 debut “Could Hell Be Any Worse?” After a brief hiatus at the end of the ’80s, the reformed band found mainstream success in the ’90s with the rise of grunge.

Bad Religion reissued “Maps” as a deluxe CD package on July 8, 2008, which included 10 additional songs and a DVD of previously unreleased concert and studio footage. Band members have already begun writing material for a follow-up to “Maps,” tentatively scheduled for release in June 2009.
