Old Man Markley has a brand new 7" called Stupid Today, and it’s coming out May 6th! The title track is described by bassist Joey Balls as “a song about reluctantly riding the relationship roller coaster. Fat Mike coined it our ‘Burt Bacharach song’. I think it’s a compliment?” Continuing the band’s tradition of covers on the flipside of their singles, they tackle NOFX this time. Joey says, “‘Reeko’” is our latest punk rock cover. In the original version, NOFX plays the first half slow and punks up the second half of the tune. We added an intro (very ‘Herojauna’-esque), did the verses fast and end the song slow and folky. There’s another NOFX song paid tribute to within this cover (a cover within a cover), just so NOFX fans really get how much we love NOFX." Artwork for the 7" was created by the talented Chris Shary (Descendents, Snuff) and you can pre-order this nice little record right here and now! Old Man Markley will be on tour in the U.S. this April and May, including Punk Rock Bowling. Check out those dates, and their upcoming Canadian and European runs all right here!
