Fat Mike, Eric Melvin, Erik Sandin, and El Hefe are set to embark on what will probably be the most revealing tour of their lives. After three decades of NOFX, the full story is finally being told in their upcoming book, NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub and Other Stories, to be released on April 12th through Da Capo Press. Along with the book release, they’ll be touring throughout North America, playing shows at night, and demolishing book stores by day. Folks can expect to hear them read excerpts of their pranks, drunkenness and fun, alongside the horrors of murder, suicide, addiction, riots and more. Head here to view their upcoming book tour and concert dates, and here to pre-order the book!

As promised, we have some new music headed your way from our latest signees, Mean Jeans! Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll release a new single from these illustrious creatures on March 18th. The three-song 7" is titled Nite Vision and features a brand new song culled from their upcoming full-length (details to be announced soon), along with two exclusive B-sides! Just a taste of what’s coming down the pike. Check out what Billy Jeans (guitar/vox) had to say about the release below:
Mean Jeans have awoken from a self-inflicted stupor and are all hyped up on the next phase. We’ve been sitting on a gang of party punk smashers that we’ll be releasing over the next few months, starting with our debut Fat single. Dig it, get geared up for our forthcoming LP and catch us in the Pacific Northwest and SXSW in March, both coasts in May, and Europe this summer.
March 4th, the release date for face to face’s new full length, Protection, is still over a month away. But we’ve got a little something to tide you over until then. The Onion A.V.Club is premiering the first new track from the album, “Double Crossed.” It’s a perfect blend of driving guitars and catchy melodies that’ll leave you thirsting for more. Luckily for all of you, the album is up for pre-order now, with a few bundle options below. Stay tuned, as face to face have a ton of tour dates up their sleeve, which include the already announced MusInk and Punk Rock Bowling!
