It is with great sorrow that we must say goodbye to Tony Sly of No Use For A Name. We received a call earlier today of his passing, and are devastated. We have lost an incredible talent, friend, and father – one of the true greats. Fat Mike had this to say: “One of my dearest friends and favorite song writers has gone way too soon. Tony, you will be greatly missed.”
VICE Magazine is premiering the new NOFX single “Ronnie & Mags”, from the 7” and upcoming full length. Read their interview with Fat Mike and listen to the song here!
Man, we’re even late reporting news about shit we did ourselves. We posted the pre-order for the new NOFX album yesterday. You
jerks fans bogged down our site so badly we couldn’t even post all of the pre-order items before you started complaining that a certain shirt size wasn’t available or that you couldn’t get the colored vinyl without buying the combo. Jesus H! Anyway, colored vinyl (1,000 copies) is sold out, but you can still get regular black vinyl, 180 gram black vinyl (500 pressed), shirts, Live Decline DVD’s and album+shirt+DVD combos. I recommend the gorgeous 180 gram black vinyl. Definitely the fattest way to listen to this ripping new punk record.

Yes, it’s true what you’ve heard. The new NOFX full-length, Self Entitled, is finally here! NOFX fans, steady yourselves, cause this album is fucking legit. We’re not just saying that because our boss is in the band either, this album is a serious ass kicker.
Now, normally when we announce an album, we put up a pre-order at the same time, but not today. The thing is there are still some details to iron out before our pre-order goes up next week. We’ve got some colorful ideas about vinyl, but the options are weighing on us so heavily (have you ever lifted 180 grams? that shit’s heavy) that we couldn’t make up our minds quite yet. There’s also the issue of a DVD (exclusive to our webstore) with some unfinished business from They’ve Actually Gotten Worse Live. Not to mention, working on designs for fashion conscious NOFX fans ain’t exactly easy. As you can see, that’s a lotta strands to keep in our heads, man. Luckily we’re adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug regimen to keep our minds limber.
Check back in with us next week to get all the fascinating details about the extras and to secure your pre-order.
