Noisey/Vice is premiering a brand new Less Than Jake song: “My Money is on the Long Shot.” Culled from their new album See The Light, out November 12th, the song races with horns, hooks, and catchy melodies that exemplify just why they’ve survived for 20 years. This November, Less Than Jake will be touring under the Fat banner throughout the United States with Anti-Flag, Masked Intruder and Get Dead. Head here to pre-order your copy today!
It’s called Stuck in a Circle and comes out November 26th. The a-side is from this year’s extraordinary Poorly Formed album while the b-sides include a previously unreleased original alongside the band’s take on the No Use For a Name classic “Not Your Savior”. Pre-order soon, or pick the record up early from the band on their November tour.
New York! Our 2013 CMJ showcase is coming next week! October 18th in Brooklyn at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. GOOD RIDDANCE returns to New York for the first time in over 6 years! You get The Flatliners playing for the first time since their new album came out, Western Addiction playing for the first time in over 7 years, hometown heroes Morning Glory ready to showcase some new songs, and the absolutely shredding Night Birds as our special guests. It does NOT get much better than this! But, if you’d rather tour the New York harbor while watching some old school punk, we’ll be stripping our showcase down and heading for the Hudson on the infamous Rocks Off Boat Cruise show, where you’ll be treated to (literally) rockin’ sets from GOOD RIDDANCE, Night Birds and Western Addiction! Because we’re all vinyl nerds, we’ll be pressing a special limited edition Fat CMJ 7" which can ONLY be purchased at these two shows! The 7" will have exclusive songs from Good Riddance & Night Birds, plus brand new songs from The Flatliners and Western Addiction. The 7" will be pressed on four different colors and can be procured at the Western Addiction merch booth. Say hi to the fellas and pick up their new 7" Pines too. Don’t fucking miss these shows!
After an eight year wait, WESTERN ADDICTION unleash “BLACK SALT” over at Noisey/Vice. It’s the first song from Pines, a menacing three song 7" with savage vocals and ripping guitars and will be released on November 5th! You can pre-order it today. Don’t miss them live this month as they’ll be supporting Good Riddance and performing at our CMJ showcase on October 18th and 19th in NYC.
Relentless touring, recording, filming, wrapping production of Backstage Passport 2 (due out next year), an ale being brewed (you heard us right, they’ll have their own beer!) and a December tour booked with the mighty Dillinger Four. You’d think these dudes would take a break but you’d be wrong . We can’t even begin to leak what NOFX has planned next year but trust us when we say that even we were surprised. What we can reveal is that 2013 will close with a new 7" and EP called Stoke Extinguisher! The title track is a brand new song; the b-side of the single is NOFX’s cover of Tony Sly’s “The Shortest Pier,” from The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute (out October 29th)! Digitally, we’ve beefed it up to be a proper EP, rounding up all of last year’s b-sides like “My Stepdad’s a Cop and My Stepmom’s a Domme” and a rawer, edgier demo version of “I Believe in Goddess.” The cover was hand painted by the multi-talented Jason Cruz of Strung Out, which you can view below.
