Happy Friday punk rockers! To kickoff your weekend we’re offered a special little treat from California punk legends NOFX; a stream of a new single from their upcoming album “First Ditch Effort”. The new track is titled “I Don’t Like Me Anymore” and it follows a somewhat similar theme as the last single in that it takes a pretty refreshing reversal of the pro-drug using, f-you sentiment that had become common themes in recent NOFX releases.
After reading the NOFX biography “The Hepatitis Bathtub…” I’ve been watching Fat Mike’s transition to sober living via Instagram with an unusual sense of pride and gratitude, and I’m a little embarrassed to say that more than a few posts have actually made me a bit misty eyed. I mean, I don’t even know the dude! But I digress. “I Don’t Like Me Anymore” struck me as an especially poignant tune lyrically and it just so happens to also kickass musically. Stream it below.
First Ditch Effort will be released this October 7th through Fat Wreck Chords and serves as the first full-length release since 2012′s Self Entitled.
