HD Video: Jason Cruz and Fat Mike join Hi-Standard to cover No Use For A Name

So this is pretty cool. A couple days ago a high def video surfaced on the web of a Hi-Standard show in Japan in which Jason Cruz of Strung Out and Fat Mike of NOFX joined the Japanese punk legends on stage to pay homage to Tony Sly in the form of a couple No Use For A Name covers. Jason sang “Soulmate” while Mike did “Justified Black Eye”. The video and audio recording is great but the covers themselves might leave some room for improvement. Either way, it’s cool to watch so check it out below.



NOFX debut new song “Oxy Moronic” in L.A.

Last Saturday, California punk legends NOFX debuted a new song called ”Oxy Moronic” at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles. You can check out a fan-filmed video of the song’s performance below.

“Oxy Moronic” is likely taken from NOFX’s long-awaited new album, which still has no title but is expected for release in June. It will be the band’s first studio album since 2012′s Self-Entitled.



NOFX to release new album in June

As you may recall, NOFX just recently finished recording and mixing their long-awaited new album. Following that, they streamed one new song a few days ago (“Hepatitis Bathtub“) and released the 7″ EP Sid and Nancy last Saturday, which was Record Store Day. Now, NOFX frontman Fat Mike has revealed that the still-untitled new album will be released in June:

“Our new album is I think our most personable album yet. For me it was like peeling off my skin. The new album which will come out in June is the first album that I wrote and recorded a lot of while I was using drugs. In the past I have always gone into the studio and recorded sober. What I found while working on this album was that I cared more. After I would do a line I became extremely focused on making whatever song I was working on the best it could be. A lot of this came from not only writing the book but also from when I was working on the “Home Street Home” musical. With a musical you can’t put in one word that’s not needed as you have 2 hours to tell an entire story. You can’t waste a word. You will definitely be able to tell the influences of the book and the musical on this new album.”

Nearly four years have passed since NOFX released their most recent studio album Self-Entitled through Fat Wreck Chords.

Captain Trips (skatepunk/UK) release debut EP

UK newcomers, Captain Trips, have released their debut EP to stream for free via the band’s bandcamp page. The record is four tracks of rapid-riff laden skate punk, as appears to be the tradition from the British Isles these days.

Captain Trips definitely sound like a band to follow if you enjoy other UK skate punk acts like Darko and The Human Project and you can see for yourselves below.



Video Interview: Fat Mike talks sex, cross dressing and new book “The Hepatitis Bathtub And Other Stories”

In a (not surprisingly) super open and candid interview Fat Mike talks to some dude from Highlark about the NOFX biographical book “NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub And Other Stories”. Before he gets into the book details half the interview is about the joys of cross dressing and Mike’s sex life with his dominatrix wife. Its entertaining and maybe a little alarming – is this the kinda shit I’m going to have to get into to keep my sex life interesting 6 or 7 years from now? Ultimately though its a great promotional piece for the book. He gives a couple summaries of some of the stories in it and also discloses that each band member was interviewed separately for the book, leading to a few shocking discoveries for the band themselves once it came out.

Anyway, if you’ve got 20 or so minutes its worth watching. Just try to ignore the awkwardness of the interviewee (man, I would have done such a better job conducting that interview). Check it out below.

“The Hepatitis Bathtub And Other Stories” is available now. Pick it up on Amazon. I just did.



Erik Sandin says new NOFX album is finished

In a recent interview, NOFX drummer Erik Sandin (aka Smelly) revealed that the band just finished recording and mixing their long-awaited new album, which will be their first since 2012′s Self Entitled. He states:

“It’s funny; right as you called I was about to put in our new [album], which got mixed yesterday and give it a listen to. It’s mixed, it’s done, in the can, it’s getting ready to get shipped off to whoever it gets shipped off to. It sounds awesome. We used a different producer this time; we were using Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore for a long time, but we used Cameron Webb and he did a fucking phenomenal job.”

It is currently not known when the new album will be released, but we’ll keep you posted as more details on it come to light. NOFX recently played one song from the new record, reportedly titled “I’m Sorry, Tony“, which is a tribute to their late friend Tony Sly from No Use for a Name.

88 Fingers Louie team up wtih Sic Waiting to reconquer Southern California

It’s been seventeen years since their last visit but 88 Fingers Louie have announced that they will finally return to Southern California. They will be joined on the road with local skatepunkers Sic Waiting for a four date SoCal-jaunt (below) kicking off in July.

The Fat Wreck Chords institution that is 88 Fingers Louie might have been quiet on the music front since 2009′s live offering “88 Fingers Louie LIVES” but sporadic tours seem to suggest that there’s life in the old dog yet.



Mute puts up new video teaser for upcoming album

Canadian melodic hardcore act Mute announced a new album last April. Since then they’ve dropped numerous video teasers of new music and now they’ve dropped their first bass teaser video. You can view it, as well as the others below.



Lagwagon, NOFX, Strung Out & more to play Amnesia Rockfest 2016

Festival organizers have announced the lineup for the 2016 edition of Amnesia Rockfest. Bands playing this year’s installment of the long-running Canadian festival include Lagwagon (playing Hoss in its entirety), NOFX, Strung Out, Millencolin, Mustard Plug, Wizo, Streetlight Manifesto, Guttermouth, Blink-182, and many more.

Additionally, Fat Mike will be playing solo as “Cokie The Clown” – this should be interesting considering what happened when he did that at SXSW a few years ago. Also of note is that No Use For A Name (Special Tribute) is listed on the festival’s poster, which I assume will be NUFAN playing songs with frontmen of other bands handling singing duties in place of Tony Sly.

You can check out the full lineup for Amnesia Rockfest 2016 below. Tickets for the festival, which takes place June 24-25 in Montebello, Quebec, are available here.



Video: NOFX play new song about Tony Sly

During their show at SXSW last week, NOFX broke out a brand new song about Tony Sly (R.I.P.) for the first time. Someone in the crowd was nice enough to post a video of them playing the song on YouTube, and you can check it out below.

The band didn’t say what the title of the song was, or whether it would be featured on their upcoming album. All we currently know about the follow-up to 2012′s Self Entitled is that it’ll be out “sometime soon,” so keep you eyes peeled for more info.

NOFX will also be releasing a new 7″ titled Sid & Nancy this Record Store Day. More details on that are available here.

Update: One of our readers, William Prewitt, has told us that the band’s set list for this show referred to the song as “I’m Sorry, Tony.”
