NOFX to play “Punk In Drublic” start-to-finish on two UK tour dates


NOFX is the latest, and arguably the greatest, act to get into the “play an album in its entirety” game, and it’s their iconic album “Punk In Drublic” that’ll get the honors. Here’s what frontman Fat Mike had to say:

“We are stoked to play this this album live and mix up the tour a little, so both the band and our hardcore fans, who we know are coming along to all the shows, don’t get bored…Whilst I can’t remember all that much from 1994, I do know we totally smashed it with this record and it’s going to be a lot of fun bringing back those memories with you all!”

However, we’re not talking about an every-night kind of deal. Instead, only the band’s upcoming shows in Birmingham on June 28th and London on July 5th will feature the “Punk In Drublic” treatment. Head below to refresh your memories as to where the band are playing on their UK tour with Alkaline Trio and Lagwagon.

NOFX’s latest full-length Self Entitled, and the Stoke Extinguisher EP were both released in 2012. The band recently announced that they will release Backstage Passport 2 in August.

With classic comps like Survival of the Fattest, Physical Fatness and Live Fat, Die Young, this is a series that’s less about acting as a label sampler as it is about compiling great, listenable punk albums, loaded with gems from front to back. It’s been five years since we added a volume to the series and with a grip of new bands and new groundbreaking records from classic Fat bands, our 25th anniversary year was the obvious choice for Volume 8. Packed with an appropriate 25 songs, selected and sequenced by Fat Mike, Fat Music Vol. 8: Going Nowhere Fat is the next essential Fat comp. And as you’ve come to expect, you get a handful of brand new and unreleased tunes, this time from NOFX, Swingin’ Utters, Leftover Crack, Western Addiction, Night Birds and PEARS. The comp will be released on August 7th and will be available for pre-order soon! If you haven’t grabbed a ticket to the Fat Wrecked for 25 Years tour, you can do so now!

NOFX, Lagwagon announced for “Fat Wrecked for 25 Years” celebration in Japan

If you’re like some of the more senior members of the Dying Scene staff, your personal foray into this crazy punk rock world overlaps completely with the existence of Fat Wreck Chords. As a result, 2015 is a pretty special year, as it marks a quarter-century since the first Fat Wreck release hit the streets!

To honor the occasion, the Fat Wreck crew will be embarking on what we think will be a series of pretty cool events. The first of those to be announced is being dubbed “Fat Wrecked For Twenty-Five Years,” and conveniently enough features the two very first bands to release albums on Fat Wreck, NOFX and Lagwagon. The gig takes place in Japan on November 23rd. No further information is available for now…but stay tuned! Meanwhile, check out the “Fat Wrecked for 25 Years” announcement video below.

Video: Punk Rock Holiday 1.4 (what you missed at last year’s Slovenian punk festival)

The festival organizers for Slovenian festival Punk Rock Holiday just released a pretty cool recap video of last year’s event.  Between the green trees, beach, blue river and the bands who play this thing every year I’m going to go out on a limb and say this might be the coolest punk festival of the year.  If I lived anywhere near Slovenia I’d definitely make this an annual trip.

Anyway, the video has great music, little interview snippets and quality footage so if you’ve got 8 or 9 minutes to kill I suggest you do it below.

2015′s festival is already in the works.  It will take place on August 4-7th and has already announced a plethora of bands including Satanic Surfers, Against Me!, Mad Caddies  and more.  Check out their website for more info.

13 Punk Songs About Heartbreak To Celebrate Anti-Valentines Day

There are few things more known to any wayward punk than heartbreak. Politics, for some of us–but what drove us to our anarchist ways in the first place? Skating culture is as lonely as one can get sans a mid-90s Hook-Ups board. Heartbreak is at the very core of emocore, for crying out loud!

Pun completely intended.

In honor of the worst of commercial holidays I give you 13 of the best punk rock heartbreak tunes. Why 13? Because the 14th was stolen by the cynical commentators of my heart. One for each day of this frozen February leading up to this bittersweet day. Read on, kids.
