NOFX have teamed up with Avenged Sevenfold for a new song titled “Linewleum.” You can find an official video for that track below. With this news, NOFX have also announced that their new album “Single Album“ will be released on February 26.
NOFX’s Fat Mike said the following about the new song:
“I have no idea why ‘Linoleum‘ is THE NOFX song that is covered by so many bands, while other NOFX songs get hardly any attention. ‘Linoleum‘ wasn’t a single; it had no video; it got no radio play, and most importantly, it didn’t even have a chorus!!! All popular songs have choruses! WTF!
So, one night I stayed up till 4:00 am checking out all the different versions on YouTube. Watching hundreds of bands from over 28 countries (mostly Indonesia) doing ‘Linoleum‘ was a humbling experience for me. So I decided to write a song that was a shout-out to all those people that learned those four chords and remembered the non-rhyming lyrics.
Then I asked the biggest of all the bands (Avenged Sevenfold) to play some leads on the song. Then M Shadows suggested we do a video together. Then I figured I should put all of the bands in the video. Well, I couldn’t fit all the bands, but I picked a bunch of cool ones! A song about not playing a song that’s not a hit song with a video about other bands covering the song! This is why I love punk rock and writing punk songs. Rules out the door!”
He also added the following about the new record, which was originally going to be a double album until the band’s plans were derailed by the coronavirus pandemic:
“When you write a double album, you write differently. I was writing really different songs, and some fun songs, but you have to make a double album interesting enough to listen to the whole way. I wanted to make a perfect double album, and I didn’t accomplish that. So I decided to just make a single album, hence the title.”
