Los Angeles punk band NOFX, best known for the songs “Linoleum” and “Don’t Call Me White,” will no longer be a band in 2023. On Wednesday, frontman Fat Mike dropped the news in the comments section of a post on his Instagram page. A puzzled fan asked the lead bassist why NOFX barely played in Canada. Fans, however, received a response that perhaps they weren’t expecting. In fact, we love Canada, and this will only be our last for a year, replied Fat Mike, leader of NOFX, real name Michael John Burkett.
We will announce our last show soon. It’s an incredible race. This game started in 1983, and Fat Mike, guitarist Eric Melvin and drummer Erik Sandin were founding members of the band. In 1991, Aaron El Hefe Abeyta joined the group NOFX as guitarist and trumpeter. Frontman Fat Mike responded to the mixed comments on his Instagram post, saying Los Angeles would be the last place we would play. This is where we started and where we will end.
NOFX has yet to make an official announcement regarding the impending breakup, but Rolling Stone has confirmed the news. The band released their first record called “Thalidomide Child” in 1984 and released their self-titled debut EP a year later. NOFX’s debut album, titled “Liberal Animation”, was released in 1988 and featured songs such as “Beer Bong” and “Shut Up Already”. A second album titled “S&M Airlines” would be released in 1989.
Los Angeles punk band NOFX will split up in 2023 after 40 years
NOFX will disband after a year, according to reports from leader Fat Mike. Formed in 1983, the Los Angeles punk rock band released their 14th and final album titled “Single Album” in February 2021. This summer, the band held their own Punk In Drublic celebrations in Europe and North America, featuring last September he also played two versions of Slam Dunk 2021 simultaneously in Leeds and Hatfield.
In response to one of his new Instagram posts, Fat Mike wrote that from now on next year will be [NOFX’s] Last year. We will be reporting on our latest show soon. It’s an incredible race. The revelation came after a follower quizzed Fat Mike on the band’s few legitimate reasons for not coming to Canada to perform live. After fans heard the news, another user asked if NOFX would be performing in Los Angeles before the breakup. Fat Mike replied that Los Angeles would be the last place we played. This is where we started and where we will end.
NOFX’s final year will also be the group’s 40th anniversary. The celebration of Fat Mike and his partner Punk In Drublic’s ongoing journey is set to conclude on October 2 in Asbury Park, NJ. “Single Album” was originally intended to be a double album, but the COVID-19 pandemic changed NOFX’s arrangements. Mike explained beforehand that when you write a double album, you write in an unexpected way. There really is a variety of songs being created and interesting melodies, but you have to make a double album engaging enough to focus on the whole process. I needed to make an ideal duo album, but I didn’t. So I opted to simply make an album and then the title.
