NOFX readies a Coaster

    Some would argue NOFX has been coasting for quite a while now, perhaps as long as the 15 years that the legendary punk outfit has been around. So it would only be fitting if the band chose to title its upcoming twelfth studio album after what the dictionary defines as to “act or move aimlessly or with little effort.”

    Of course, Fat Wreck Chords, which will be releasing Coaster on April 28th, gives a bit more flattering, but equally humorous explanation behind the title:

    That’s right, NOFX have your coffee table in mind this spring with the release of their 12th full length studio record, Coaster. Not only will Coaster protect your favorite end table from that offending gin and juice cocktail, but music will also be included! That means 12 brand new songs to sip that drink to. And for all you athletic types, the record will also be available on a vinyl 12” Frisbee!

    Whether a reflection of the band’s general actions or the fact Fat Mike and Co. are on a crusade to keep wooden tables safe, as mentioned above, we do know Coaster will include music that of which was produced by Descendants drummer Bill Stevenson.

    NOFX will look to support the release with a slew of upcoming tour stops, highlighted by the dates in Ireland. As we mentioned back in December, following an altercation at a performance at Dublin’s Gig on the Green some seven years ago, NOFX vowed never to return to the country. However, an online fan petition appears to have changed their minds. A headlining appearance at this year’s Warped Tour is also on the itinerary.
