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.
