NOFX to play the House of Blues with Anti-Flag

, Staff

NOFX have announced plans for a fall tour with support from fellow punk-rock veterans Anti-Flag. The tour will kick off at Boston’s House of Blues on Thursday, October 6. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Live Nation for $32. Punk acts Old Man Markley and Break on Through will also perform.

Fans will likely get a chance to hear songs from NOFX’s brand new Untitled EP, which includes covers of hardcore punk songs from a variety of more 80’s bands including Necros, Social Unrest, Stretch Marks and Rebel Truth. There is also a twelfth studio album on the horizon for NOFX, but the band has not offered a title for the followup to 2009’s Coaster. Frontman Michael John Burkett – better known as Fat Mike – admitted in an interview with The Daily Times that, after 27 years of songwriting, creating original material becomes difficult. “I’m reaching, man,’ he said. “Sometimes I grab stuff just to grab stuff, and I’m going in a lot of different directions.”

Anti-Flag will hit the United States fresh off tours in South America and Europe. The band will soon be releasing an EP as part of The Complete Control Sessions, which is curated by SideOneDummy Records owner and Complete Control Radio host JoeSib. The release will feature live recordings of four Anti-Flag songs along with a three bonus covers of The Clash. Frontman Justin Sane has also revealed that the band plans to release a studio album in the fall. While no track listings are available yet, the record will be titled Magnum, which Sane confirmed is a reference to the movie “Zoolander”.
