NOFX: BACKSTAGE PASSPORTDOCUMENTARY SERIES ON FUSE TV

Fuse TV is going to be airing a series of documentaries on NOFX starting on April 15th at 10pm EST. Here is a statement from the band…

*So we got the bright idea to take two camera dudes on this sketchy tour we booked and make a documentary. We went to Singapore, Peru, Israel, South Africa, Turkey, Korea; you get the idea…countries where maybe punk music isn’t too popular.

After a few weeks we realized there’s way too much semi-interesting, sorta funny, kind of embarrassing stuff going on. How are we gonna fit all this on a DVD? So we thought maybe TV? Nah, that’s never gonna happen—we’re not nearly as funny as Travis Barker. But we made a little trailer anyhow and showed it to some of our friends at Fuse. They loved it and showed it to some of their bosses. Their bosses didn’t get it at all and told us they would call. We knew what that meant, so it was back to the DVD idea.

We kept the camera dudes on tour with us for the next year and some pretty cool stuff happened. Well…not cool for us, but cool for the DVD. Stuff like not getting paid, cops shutting down shows, Muslims getting pissed at us, Jews getting pissed at us, scoring the wrong drugs, getting beat up by Japanese women in latex, getting beat up by a Russian man in a pointy hat and basically having a super great time.

We finished the tour in South Africa and came home. We figured we might as well show it to the Fuse people again. (We showed it to HBO too, and they told us that maybe if we were U2 they would consider it…diss.) By this time Fuse had hired new people and the new folks loved it. They said they wanted to make it into a documentary series. Coolage! We signed the papers and now we have a TV show.

After months and months of editing and fighting amongst ourselves, we have 8 episodes of a show, but after you account for commercials it’s only about the length of a really long movie. Think Titanic meets Spinal Tap. NOFX never had a video on MTV, but now we have a documentary on TV. Weird how things work out. Anyhow, it comes out in April sometime. My neighbors are never going to speak to me again.*

Fat Tour 2008 Leg #2 Tour Dates Announced!

We have just posted all the tour dates and ticket links for the Northwestern leg of the Fat Tour 2008 featuring NOFX, No Use For a Name and American Steel! You might be looking at the list below and think “That’s a pretty short leg” but sometimes things with a short leg are completely killer like those freaky mountain goats or Rivers Cuomo. Besides, he got that shit fixed after the Blue Album and try telling me how somebody with normal, boring legs could write a song as good as “Say It Ain’t So.” We’re going to post the first mp3 from the upcoming No Use for a Name record next week to get you ready for the start of the first leg of the tour. We’re cooking up some cool road diaries, podcasts, videos and contests for the tour and we’ll let you know about those soon. Here’s the dates:

May 2nd    Denver, CO - The Fillmore Auditorium
May 3rd    SLC, UT - In the Venue
May 4th    Missoula, MT - TBA
May 6th    Edmonton, Alberta - AgriCom - Hall B
May 7th    Calgary, Alberta - MacEwan Hall Ballroom
May 9th    Vancouver, BC - Commodore Ballroom
May 10th   Seattle, WA - Showbox Sodo
May 11th   Portland, OR - Crystal Ballroom

The Loved Ones Build & Burn out now! VOTE!

Happy Super Tuesday! If your state is having their primary today then you better go vote. If not then I guess just do whatever the hell you usually do and call it “Tuesday”.

Build & Burn is the second full length release from Philadelphia’s, The Loved Ones. The album was produced by Pete Steinkopf and Bryan Keinlen from the Bouncing Souls and features cameos from the Hold Steady’s Franz Nicolay (piano, Hammond B3 organ, harmonica, accordion, saw) and Tad Kubler (guitar). The new record hints at Americana rock n’ roll with expanded instrumentation, plenty of backing vocals and a thematic concept based on the album title. The band will soon be filming a video for the song “The Bridge” but until then you can catch them on the first leg of their US tour on the East Coast or even at one of their after parties. In their 6th studio video update (below) the band is on a constant search for “The Boss” but they could have just asked us for El Hefe’s phone number and saved themselves some time.
