NOFX stream new song “I Don’t Like Me Anymore” off upcoming album “First Ditch Effort”

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.

Night Birds releasing new 7″ on Fat Wreck

New Jersey punks Night Birds will be releasing a new 7″ titled Who Killed Mike Hunchback? on October 7th through Fat Wreck Chords. Check out the cover art & tracklist  below.

Here’s what Night Birds frontman Brian Gorsegner had to say about the 6-song release:

“Mike Hunchback was Night Birds’ guitarist when the band started, before PJ Russo took over. Our parting of ways was very amicable and we remain close pals. Mike continues to reside in Brooklyn, NY, runs a rad record shop, and plays in a band called Screeching Weasel. These are some demos we recorded in preparation for some of our early records. Two of these tracks are especially interesting, in my opinion, because they contain Mike playing everything and even singing on a pair of tunes he had written for the band.”

Who Killed Mike Hunchback? is the 2nd installment in Fat Wreck Chords’ Original Demo Series. The first installment – NOFX‘s Sid & Nancy 7″ – came out this past Record Store Day.
