Drummer Roy McDonald adds, “I think No Holiday is the most unique album we’ve ever made — 18 songs that run the spectrum from full-blown productions to intimate home recordings. This was a labor of love for us and I think that comes out in the record. We wanted to create something lasting and special. I, for one, couldn’t be happier with the results.”

You can watch a trailer for the album below.



NOFX release new single “Fish In A Gun Barrel” (proceeds going to Moms Demand Action)

Ahead of the band’s upcoming album, NOFX have released a brand new single titled “Fish In A Gun Barrel.” In an intro to the song Fat Mike explains that the song was written in 2016 but the band held off on releasing it due to it hitting a little too close to home so soon after the Vegas shootings. Given the recent spate of gun violence in the US earlier this month, the band decided to use the track to help raise funds for Moms Demand Action, a grassroots movement fighting for public safety measures that protect people from gun violence.

Check out the song, along w/ Fat Mike’s introduction below.

NOFX last released Ribbed – Live in a Dive in 2018 via Fat Wreck Chords. Their last studio output was First Ditch Effort in 2016.

Lagwagon announce new album “Railer”, release new single and announce tour dates

Good news! Lagwagon will release “Railer”, their ninth full length album on October 4 through Fat Wreck Chords.

Alongside the announcement, the band have released “Bubble” – the first single from the album – today. “The idea of that song was to embrace and appreciate what you have,” explains frontman Joey Cape on “Bubble”, “I really specifically tried to make it feel and sound like an old Lagwagon song, so I borrowed a lot from early records for it. And then from there, I just kept thinking that the rules have to be that ‘RAILER’ feels like something Lagwagon might have done in the old days. I wanted to see what would happen if I didn’t overthink things and I just tried to write a record as quickly as possible without losing the quality I expect from myself as a songwriter.”

The band have also announced a stack of tour dates in North America and Europe – check out the dates and the video below.

You can pre-order “Railer” right now.

Ink Bomb release new single, “Scourge”, off their upcoming debut album

Dutch skate punks Ink Bomb have just released the second single off their upcoming album, Fiction, which is due August 23. The song is called “Scourge,” even though it wasn’t always.

“Before the song was named Scourge, ‘Poppy song’ was the working title during song writing. We called it that way, because the song is more pop punk than many of our other songs,” says drummer Paul van de Geijn. “We wrote multiple new songs at the same time. This way, we immediately knew what new song we were talking about in the rehearsal room.”

Do you like this poppy direction from Ink Bomb? Listen to “Scourge” below.
