NOFX have released a new live EP titled “The Decline Live at Red Rocks.” The effort was recorded during the band’s August 25, 2019 set at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO in which they performed “The Decline” in full with Baz’s Orchestra. You can watch the performance below and find it in digital outlets now. The EP will also receive a vinyl release on August 7.
Since virtually everyone is stuck at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, Fat Mike has decided to start releasing new songs form NOFX’s upcoming album early. A video for the first of these new tracks, “I Love You More Than I Hate Me,” can be found below:
All of NOFX’s scheduled U.S. shows have apparently been cancelled. According to Fat Mike, the band have essentially been banned from large venues in the country due to their infamous Las Vegas shooting joke at the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival. The group have since apologized for their comments.
Fuck it! I’m not supposed to talk about it, but because of the comments we made in Las Vegas… every NOFX show has been cancelled in the US. We did not drop off the shows…. we were told that NOFX is not welcome to play ANY big venue in the United States. No joke! NOFX has effectively been banned in our own country. This is not our choice, but it is our reality. We are very sorry to our fans, especially the ones in Austin. For now, we are playing in Europe, Mexico, and Canada. The Punk in Drublic Festival is still happening in Europe and other continents. I’m trying my best to bring it back to the US but a lot of people don’t want it to happen. It fuckin sucks! We made a mistake, we apologized, and we gotta suffer the consequences. Maybe it ain’t fair, but whoever said life was. We are just very thankful that our fans are being so supportive. Thanks to all of you!!!!! See y’all in Slovenia tomorrow!
“There’s no place here to backpedal. What NOFX said in Vegas was shameful. We crossed the line of civility. We can’t write songs about how people in this world need to be more decent, when we were clearly being indecent. Las Vegas has always been a welcoming city to our band, and to make light of the tragedy that occurred there was egregious.
All members of the band would like to sincerely apologize to anyone who experienced loss from the Vegas shooting 8 months ago, and to anyone who was at our show who lost a loved one or a friend, or who had to witness the incredibly senseless violence that night.
We were asked why we didn’t release an immediate apology. Well, we didn’t feel that we could write a sincere apology without reflecting on the actual damage we had done. No press agent was gonna write this for us. That’s why we have struggled with this for the past few days.
We didn’t plan or intend on saying anything so insensitive. It was off the cuff, but just as hurtful. We won’t blame it on drugs or alcohol or Ambien. That’s too easy. NOFX said it, and we own it. We made a tasteless joke. But to be clear, NOFX does not condone violence against ANY group of people, period!
