NOFX To Release “Double Album” In December, Premiere New Song “Darby Crashing Your Party”

NOFX will be releasing a new album, titled “Double Album,” on December 2. The effort will serve as a follow-up to last year’s “Single Album” and its first single, “Darby Crashing Your Party,” can be found below:

“Double Album ” Track Listing:

01. “Darby Crashing Your Party”
02. “My Favorite Enemy”
03. “Don’t Count On Me”
04. “Johanna Constant Teen”
05. “Punk Rock Cliché”
06. “Fuck Day Six”
07. “Is It Too Soon If Time Is Relative?”
08. “Alcopollack”
09. “Three Against Me”
10. “Gone With The Heroined”

Fat Mike said the following about the band’s decision to do a double album:

“I wish I knew. OK. I mean, we have a lot of records. I’m not sure how many, let’s call it 15 with 10 more EPs and 65 7″s. I wanted to do a double album cuz there are no good ones out there. Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ is about it. ‘Quadrophenia’ is OK, I guess, if you’re a Who fan. Definitely not [The Beatles’] ‘White Album.’ I don’t think anybody else has made good double albums. Certainly not Husker Du, Minutemen, or Smashing Pumpkins.

I really like ‘Single Album’ a lot, but the songs on ‘Double Album’ aren’t quite up to scratch. All these songs were recorded at the same time, except this one was finished two years later. I think it’s a very enjoyable album, and maybe our funniest. I think it is what a lot of our fans will want to hear and it’s a great side three and four for a double album. I accomplished my goal of making a solid double-album, but it just took a lot longer than I expected.”

He also added:

“You have to laugh at everything, because the world is just falling apart and you have to have a good attitude not to take things seriously. So this is how I’ve always done it. I make people laugh every day. I usually do it in a self-deprecating way, it’s just how I go through life: I have as much fun as I can. That’s what life is—trying to find all the happiness you can. And spreading happiness. Which is what I feel like is supposed to be my job in life—spreading joy.”

This news comes after Fat Mike recently revealed that the band are planning to call it quits in 2023.

SpiritWorld Premiere “Deathwestern” Music Video

SpiritWorld have premiered an age-restricted music video for the title track of their new album “Deathwestern.” That effort will be released on November 25.

Stu Folsom commented:

“Finally. I spent the last two years of my life working on this album in my free time. The video for ‘Deathwestern‘ is premiering live in 10 minutes on Century Media’s YouTube. New ALBUM preorder is live NOW on our webstore and it is insane.

I need to say thanks to my band and crew. Thank you to Sam for capturing the magic. Thank you to Todd for bringing the gore and the gun-smoke. Thanks to James, Piper and Kat for helping me with the artwork. Thank you to the teams at AGI, Century Media, 5B, Panda, Cosa Nostra and Check Your Head.

Thanks most of all to Jen for putting up with a complete psychopath hellbent on making a record that could stand up to “Arise”, letting me turn our garage and office into a merch store and gear locker, taking up all the curb parking with not one but TWO hoopty tour vans aaaaand a trailer and then STILL jumping on planes and smelly van tours with us. Without your love and support, this would not be possible or worth it.

I’m still shocked this became the title track considering the song is about a train hopping serial killer, murdering men across the dust bowl before eventually finding his faith and becoming The Heretic Butcher. It still cracks me up that of all the songs, my boy Mike Gitter loves this one the most and called me and said, “Look Stu, I’m a lyric guy. THIS is a single!” Amazing.

THANK YOU for all the support everybody. There is something special happening with this band and I can’t tell you how much all the love means to us. I cannot wait for you to hear this whole gd record.”

He also added:

“I started writing our new album right when I finished ‘Pagan Rhythms‘. At that point, I had been playing guitar everyday for about a year and it was no joke the highlight of my days. Just banger riff after banger riff jumping out of the Viper Blood Tele.

It took six months to get four songs together that I thought could stand up to Pagan. Then I knew I had another full length. This was the 4th song I wrote and it became the title track and our partner in crime and A&R extraordinaire Mike Gitter‘s favorite. When we finished tracking, I vividly remember getting chills.

The intro whammys are 100% intentional White Zombie worship. ‘La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol. 1‘ was SUCH an important record for me. From samples, to groove, to incorporating horror into metal… definitely one of the most influential albums of my youth. I’m following that blueprint still. Always have.”

“Deathwestern” Track Listing:

01. “Mojave Bloodlust”
02. “Deathwestern”
03. “Relic Of Damnation”
04. “Purafied In Violence”
05. “U L C E R”
06. “Committee Of Buzzards”
07. “The Heretic Butcher”
08. “Moonlit Torture” (feat. Dwid Hellion of Integrity)
09. “Crucified Heathen Scum”
10. “Lujura Satánica”
11. “1000 D E A T H S”

He Is Legend To Release New Album “Endless Hallway” In November, Share Two New Songs

He Is Legend have announced that their new album, “Endless Hallway,” will be released on November 11. Two songs from the effort, “Lifeless Lemonade” and “The Prowler,“ can be found below:

“Endless Hallway” Track Listing:

01. “The Prowler”
02. “Lifeless Lemonade”
03. “Honey From The Hive”
04. “Return To The Garden”
05. “Circus Circus”

07. “Sour”
08. “Endless Hallway”
09. “Time’s Fake”
10. “Sink Hole”
11. “Animals”
12. “Lord Slug”

The group commented:

“This album is a testament to our band’s endurance. It is easily our most aggressive album to date, born and bred from the odd shift in the world that affected everyone. We have always used our music as an outlet, and no better time than when the world felt so much like an ENDLESS HALLWAY.”

Vocalist Schuylar Croom added:

“We had to push the vocal recording, because my stomach was failing due to my diabetes. It was so bad I couldn’t perform. It took a while to get back to some semblance of normal. Eventually, I hopped in the car and drove 10 hours to Nashville to record at Mitch Marlow’s place. I’m a different person now. The universe throws those things at you to make you stronger. That’s  personal growth.”

Croom also commented further via social media

“I’m grateful. Honestly. I love you all. I love my band. I’m so excited for these tunes to start gushing out. Thanks for everything guys. You’ve always been so loyal. I can’t wait to wake up to see what you all think about these jams. This album our most aggressive work bar none. I’m ready to rip some gigs with my besties. As the kids say these days… “Let’s go… no cap””

Disturbed To Release New Album “Divisive” In November, Premiere New Song “Unstoppable”

Disturbed will be releasing their new album, “Divisive,” on November 18. Pre-orders can be found HERE.

“Divisive” Track Listing:

02. “Bad Man”
03. “Divisive”
04. “Unstoppable”
05. “Love To Hate”
06. “Feeding The Fire”
07. “Don’t Tell Me” (feat. Heart’s Ann Wilson)
08. “Take Back Your Life”
09. “Part Of Me”
10. “Won’t Back Down”

Singer David Draiman said the following about the album:

“Partisan tribal warfare has become a part of our regular existence nowadays. It’s one big battle of the cliques. The whole idea of the record is to be a wakeup call for everyone. Our society has become addicted to outrage. Music is the best cure for what ails us though. If only everyone reached out and used it. There’s no better environment to forget about all of this shit than live music. We can be together and realize we have more in common than not. Recognize what’s happening and let’s make a change for the better.”

Guitarist Dan Donegan continued:

“Whatever it takes, we’ve got to pull it together. We’ve always tried to take negative topics and spin them in a positive light. From touring around the world, we’ve seen the power of music as the universal language to bring everyone together from all walks of life. We can still play songs to unite people, and it’s a pretty powerful feeling.”

The effort’s latest single, “Unstoppable,” can be found below. Draiman had the following to say about that track:

“‘Unstoppable’ is definitely one of the heavier tracks on the record. The groove builds into a bombastic animal. It’s truly the fight song.”

Donegan added:

“We always have a big rock anthem on every album,” Donegan commented. “We love to write empowering songs for motivation. We’re avid sports fans, and that’s definitely part of it. It’s an in-your-face track, for sure.”

Elder To Release New Album “Innate Passage” In November

Elder have announced a new album titled “Innate Passage.” The effort will be released on November 25 and the cover art and track listing can be found below. Notably, the record will feature guest vocals from Behrang Alavi (Samavayo).

02. “Endless Return”
03. “Coalescence”
04. “Merged In Dreams – Ne Plus Ultra”
05. “The Purpose”

Nick DiSalvo commented:

“This record channels the surreal world we live in from a fantastical point of view, not super-literally, and how we as humans processed that; everyone on their own passage through time and space and whatever version of reality they chose for themselves. The phrase ‘Innate Passage’ appeared to me when writing the record. Passage and transition are necessary in the human condition and this process is intrinsic to us. All the growth and introspection we underwent in the past few years totally made this apparent to me more so than any other experiences in life so far.”

This news comes as Elder are preparing to hit the road with Pallbearer and Irist:
