Trailblazers Old Man Markley can’t be accused of resting on their laurels. With their epic touring schedule, a single & album released last year, the building of a home recording studio, and a newly recorded album under their belts, it’s been jam packed. The party (shack) continues on November 6th when we’ll be releasing a new two song 7” called Blood on My Hands in anticipation of their upcoming full length, due out early next year. Old Man Markley vocalist and guitar player Johnny Carey had this to say:
“Blood on My Hands” was the last song written for our upcoming record and turned out being one of our favorites. With Paddy’s approval, we recorded D4’s “folk song.” for the b-side, making it our third punk cover.
This 7” is a limited edition special one-time pressing. Pre-order is coming soon. Watch this video of Old Man Markley in the studio. Hungry for more? Well, Old Man Markley are true road warriors and just added new tour dates! Check them out here.
We’re confident we could count on one hand just how many times NOFX has cancelled a show, but last Friday, it was unavoidable. Since these guys are professionals, they’ve already rescheduled it for December 4th and 5th at the Cabooze in Minneapolis. Tickets for the September 14th gig can be exchanged for either date, or can be refunded at point of purchase.
No one likes a party like NOFX, they’ll be joining Dropkick Murphys, Alkaline Trio, and more at Punch Drunk Punk Festival on November 10th. Then, they’ll kick their December tour off with Teenage Bottlerocket in Denver and close the year in style with their annual New Year’s Heave show, this time in Montreal.

NOFX’s Self Entitled is out today and available digitally, on vinyl and CD! Listen to the entire record on Spotify, read a new interview or two and check this review! A return to their aggressive roots, Self Entitled embraces the hostile early LA punk sound while maintaining the trademark technical and melodic sound that NOFX is renowned for. As with all “NOFX” albums, the subject matter on Self Entitled is diverse, but there is a more personal bent this time around. Don’t miss them on tour, they’ll be kicking things off in Minneapolis on September 14th and heading to Chicago and Dallas to perform at Riot Fest! For a buncha drunken old punks, NOFX function at a surprising level of efficiency.
Tomorrow is release day for the new NOFX full length, Self Entitled and we’ve been handing out songs all month. Today, AMP Magazine premieres “She Didn’t Lose Her Baby”. And here’s a quick recap in case you missed the other streams: Vice Magazine streamed “Ronnie & Mags” and Rolling Stone debuted “This Machine is 4”.
