NOFX EP/7" x2 out on November 24th!

We are pleased to announce NOFX are set to release Cokie the Clown on November 24th! This EP/7”x2 will be available on cd/vinyl and through ITUNES. Okay, wrap your brains around this release. Its five brand new songs by NOFX released on one CD and split up on two different 7”s. The CD EP is titled Cokie the Clown. The first 7” is also titled Cokie the Clown_, go here for details!  You may remember Fat Mike and his daughter performing “Straight Outta Massachusetts” for Pancake Mountain which you can watch here! The second 7” is titled My Orphan Year, click blank">here for details. Each will have different covers and both will have different colored vinyl. Phew! Did you get all that? If not, read what Fat Mike has to say:

All right, Australia is a pretty cool place. I like it a whole bunch. It’s actually my favorite country/continent/island in the world, but Fuck them and their stupid time zone! Seriously, what the fuck? It takes us 18 hours to fly home (2 of which were in Hawaii cuz the toilets on the plane broke) and when we get back to Cali…….and it’s the same fucking day!

Fuck, like the shite(sp) plane ride wasn’t bad enough, now I gotta stay awake for another 10 hours. No can do. I fall asleep at 10:00 pm. Sounds reasonable? Until I wake up at 12:30 am. Yeah, cuz that’s 5:30 pm Aussie time. This isn’t really enough to bitch about, but fuck, I can’t fall asleep till 8:00 am and that’s with Ambien and whatever-pam. I woke up at 3 in the afternoon yesterday, only cuz I had to get my daughter from school.

So now it’s 6:15 am and I’m writing this many word thing to tell everyone about our new EP, but my brain is dumb now and I don’t write in a making sense manner so much. This is what I got:

Hey, BTWV (Vanessa), not 5 new song EP. 5 songs that were recorded during Coaster but didn’t make the record cuz they were too good! That’s right, they are so good that the stupid president of our record label made us leave them off the record cuz we could, “Make more money with an EP ” says him/he. NOFX think makes not sense, but he’s the guy with the fountain so we do what he says. Dudes crazy anyway. Talks about himself in the third person nonstop.

OK, Gotta go catch a flight to Riot Fest in 3 hours. I’m dressing like a fucking clown all weekend. Big stretch….later, Cokie

Hey guys, So we start a tour with Strung Out in a few days, and after that we hit The Fest in Gainesville. And if that wasn’t enough we just confirmed a tour with the one and only Dropkick Murphys in November! We are beyond stoked that we get to drink only the finest of Irish alcoholic treats whilst (booze) cruising up the West Coast of the USA and across Canada with those fine gentlemen.

New record from DEAD TO ME, out Nov 10th!

Three years after their widely acclaimed debut release, Cuban Ballerina, DEAD TO ME are back with the long-promised follow up full-length, African Elephants. The extra time spent crafting and honing the album, while agonizing for fans, proved to be well worth it. From the very first track, the dub inspired “X”, the maturation of DEAD TO ME’s sound is overtly apparent. What follows is a course of songs that both disarm and captivate the listener while seamlessly switching tempos and genres. African Elephants completely dismantles all preconceived notions that listeners may have formed about DTM.

Strung Out pre-order, new MP3 and full album stream live right now!

Agents Of The Underground Streaming on MySpace
Revolver Premieres “Vanity” with FREE Download
Agents Of The Underground out September 29th via Fat Wreck Chords, PRE-ORDER NOW!

<a href=http://www.fatwreck.com/record/detail/739 target="_self">

Los Angeles, CA – After recently debuting the first track (“Black Crosses”) off Agents Of The Underground on Spin.com, STRUNG OUT is proud to announce that fans can stream the long-awaited, seventh studio album exclusively on the band’s newly-redesigned MySpace today. Exempt from the page is the first single, “Vanity,” which can be streamed exclusively at Revolver Magazine’s website. Click here to pre-order your copy right now!

On the cusp of kicking off a headlining US tour on October 1st in San Antonio, TX, Strung Out are excited to bring Agents Of The Underground to fans across the country, as well as to fans in Costa Rica and Japan (see all tour dates below). “We are really pumped up about the release of this album and I think all our fans, old and new will be impressed,” says Strung Out drummer Jordan Burns. “We’re looking forward to playing these songs live and getting back into tour mode. It will be our second time playing Costa Rica and of course Japan is going to be amazing as well. Can’t wait!”

Agents Of The Underground was produced by Cameron Webb (Motorhead, Social Distortion, Ignite) and is “the culmination of everything we’ve done,” says vocalist Jason Cruz. Filled with the band’s signature sound which blends the technicality and musicianship of metal with punk’s fury, SPIN says “Agents of the Underground has all the double-time drums and big choruses and devil’s-horns-worthy guitar leads you could ask for from a bunch of fellas who’ve been at this longer than some of their contemporaries have been alive,” while ALTERNATIVE PRESS comments “blazing, guitar harmony-driven tracks like ‘Heart Attack’ sound like Bad Religion covering Iron Maiden, while breakdown-dominated tracks like ‘Dead Spaces’ finally see the band writing music that’s heavy without being heavy-handed.”

Sept 25 – Long Beach, CA The Shore Ultra Lounge
Oct 1 – San Antonio, TX Rock Bottom
Oct 2 – Austin, TX Red Seven
