Head over to Exclaim and listen to their new EP, which highlights a full year of the band on the road. If you haven’t pre-ordered your copy of 2012, do so today!

Holy TGIF!!! Today marks the release of “Oxy Moronic,” the third track and lead single from the upcoming NOFX album First Ditch Effort. As if that’s not enough, the comedic geniuses at Funny or Die made the video for the song! Here’s Fat Mike to explain:
“I thought it was a long shot, but I sent our new song “Oxy Moronic” to my friend at Funny or Die to see if they wanted to use it for something. He played it for some people and next thing I know, they asked if they could make a video for it! Funny or Die made a fucking video for NOFX! How cool is that?!?!?! Plus, they recruited a bunch of their comedian friends to be in it too!!! There’s even that guy from “Sons of Anarchy’ in it’”
First Ditch Effort drops on October 7 and is available now for pre-order! Grab it from iTunes, Amazon, or Google Play and you’ll get an immediate download of “Oxy Moronic,” as well as “Six Years on Dope” and “I Don’t Like Me Anymore.” Think you can handle more good news? NOFX have announced a tour behind First Ditch Effort with New Orleans maniacs, PEARS, and Israel punkers, Useless ID. Tickets for the tour are on sale now! Use presale code: FIRSTDITCHEFFORT
