NOFX - BACKSTAGE PASSPORT 2! Out August 21!
In 2008 punk veterans NOFX released an 8-part TV docu- series called NOFX: Backstage Passport, which followed the band’s ill-fated attempts to take punk rock to the unconquered corners of the globe. The mayhem that ensued was a mix of hilarious moments and crazy snafus that resulted in some shows on the tour being cancelled. Over the following four years NOFX set out to make up several shows in Mexico, Peru and Colombia that got derailed on their first attempt. Not surprisingly there were just as many bumps in the road this time around: inner-band meltdowns, shady promoters, tear gas, fires, drugs, an 8.8 earthquake and, of course, riot cops. Once again the cameras were there to capture every inglorious moment and on August 21st, we’ll release Backstage Passport 2! In addition to the feature-length documentary, the two disc set contains two “lost episodes” (Australia and Eastern Europe) from the original Backstage Passport series and loads of unreleased bonus footage. Don’t miss NOFX on tour! They’ll be jumping the pond this month to perform at a few festivals and then joining Alkaline Trio and Lagwagon on a proper UK run! In August, NOFX headline the Fat Wrecked For 25 Years tour so don’t delay, grab your tickets today!
