Long-running punk band NOFX have been at it since the early ’80s. After a string of EP’s and albums, Fat Mike, El Hefe, Eric Melvin and Erik Sandin have returned with another album. First Ditch Effort was slated for release this Friday, October 7, yet, it can actually be streamed right now. As a result, you should treat yourself. Thanks to Consequence of Sound. This is the follow-up to their 2012 project, Self Entitled.
First Ditch Effort is 13 songs and just a little over 30 minutes long.
“This is for sure our most painful and personal album,” Mike said. “All my secrets are out there. Fletcher from Pennywise said, ‘I can’t believe you’re actually singing these lyrics!’ Yep, I went there and I’m proud of this record.”
