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.
