Created from the mind and liver of NOFX's frontman Fat Mike, the Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival will debut in the Western U.S. this fall, with five special events, featuring killer music and regional craft beer. Named for NOFX’s classic Punk In Drublic album, Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival launches September 16 in Tacoma, WA, with stops in multiple cities.
NOFX will co-headline each date of the festival, alongside Flogging Molly in some markets, and Bad Religion in others, and every show will also feature four other bands. Additionally, the festival teamed up with craft beer pioneers Stone Brewing to brew their very own Stone & NOFX Punk in Drublic Hoppy Lager, which will be available in cans, only in the festival markets. The first two shows in September will feature performances from NOFX, Bad Religion, Goldfinger, Less Than Jake, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, and more. Tickets for these two shows go on sale today!

Concise and texturally rich, Western Addiction’s savage new video for their latest single, “Honeycreeper,” is out today! Head to BrooklynVegan for the premiere, and a track by track breakdown of their latest full-length, Tremulous. Then, head over to Spotify to listen to the album in its entirety. East Coasters, ready yourself, because Western Addiction will be playing a few dates this week with label-mates, Night Birds! Don’t miss them!
Buckle up! We are only three weeks away from the August 11th release of No Use For A Name’s fantastic covers album, Rarities Vol. 1: The Covers, which collects all of the band’s FAT-era cover songs, all remastered. Today, head to Spotify, Apple Music, or any other streaming service to listen to No Use’s take of the classic Misfits song, “Hybrid Moments.” Even better, you can pre-order the digital album from iTunes or Bandcamp and you’ll immediately get an instant download of the track! We’re also offering up a classic No Use For A Name T-Shirt design, bundled with the colored vinyl (if you choose). The shirt is a design from the Leche Con Carne -era, which is the starting point on the NUFAN timeline for the cover songs on this album. Grab it while you can; we aren’t making a ton of them. Don’t forget, you can also pick the vinyl up through our European webstore and our Australian webstore!
Israeli punks Useless ID kick off their European tour next month! To ready for the tour, the band filmed a video for “How to Dismantle an Atom Bomb,” a song written about living in a State always at war. Today, Visions Magazine is hosting the premiere, and you can watch it here! If you haven’t yet checked out their back-to-the-roots hardcore punk record, State Is Burning, do it now! Read what the band had to say about the song and video below:
Yotam: “At the time the song was written, there were sirens and alerts constantly going off in Tel Aviv where I was living. Try imagining a life where at any given moment, you need to stop what you’re doing and head to the nearest bomb shelter. I personally found myself crammed in the back of a thrift store by where Ishay lived with several strangers, when one of the alerts went off.”
Ishay: “The situation at home is sometimes so frustrating that it seems like a hotbed of conflict and anger for everyone involved. These things affect and change people’s lives, and we address these feelings in our song. We feel that the lyrics and the images of the video connect strongly.”
We’re heading to Duffel, Belgium, for Brakrock Ecofest on Saturday August 5th! It’s a one day festival featuring tons of Fat Wreck Chords bands. Good Riddance, face to face, Teenage Bottlerocket, The Real McKenzies, Chixdiggit, Useless ID, PEARS, and Get Dead are all playing this year! We’ll be there selling merch and music all day. We’re making a super limited 7” flexi-pack just for the festival. Come see us early, before it sells out. If you can’t make it to Brakrock, we’ll be at Punk Rock Holiday the entire next week!
