    NOFX frontman, Fat Mike, spoke with MediaMikes about recording the band’s new album. It’s looking like a June release.

    Our new album is I think our most personable album yet. For me it was like peeling off my skin. The new album which will come out in June is the first album that I wrote and recorded a lot of while I was using drugs. In the past I have always gone into the studio and recorded sober. What I found while working on this album was that I cared more. After I would do a line I became extremely focused on making whatever song I was working on the best it could be.

    Was hyped at first, but then I read the quote...

    I'm not sure if I like the fact that he wrote this album while under the influence (of whatever it was he was taking). I'll still check it out and like Nofx, but I'm sure how this album is going to turn out (makes me a bit concerned about the quality now).

    Drugged up or sober, I'll always get stoked for new NoFX.

    This will probably be the best NOFX album of all time now.

    Don't forget how many famous records of the late 60's-mid 90's involved artists who worked and generally live on drugs. And its shouldn't come as a surprise since Mike has been open about his drug use which he started when he was about 30, and he is always drunk when the band performs live.

    With NOFX, and Mike particularly, everything seems like a choice. If that means A punk band doing an 18 minute long song like The Decline, starting a label to sign bands you like, doing a cover band like Me First and The Gimmie Gimmies, or Mike wearing a dress. It also wouldn't surprise me if I read he died in an S&M/drug overdose accident. They sorta do what they want.

    Motion City Soundtrack singer used to be smashed in the studio too.

    I'm kind of torn on this. I'm interested in hearing it, but I feel like, if the album is well received, it's essentially sending the message of "Hey, the drug use really worked in your favor!"

    I was such a looker in the old days Prestigious

    My first thought too. Doubt he ever will though

    achin' to be Prestigious

    I doubt be can get as trashed in the studio as The Replacements.

    With that said, it would be interesting if this turned out to be like Don't Tell A Soul. Looking forward to this.

    one thing that he has said, is that he has learned to control his drug habit. This of course doesn't make it right, but he really controls his doses and how much he takes. again I am not staying that it is right.. I'm just saying he probably isn't there stoned out of his mind. Of course I'm sure a lot of drug addicts say the same thing.

    Look at your CD/MP3 collection right now. You know how many of those were recorded when the band was fucked up on something? Booze, coke, heroin, etc. Probably a lot more than you think. I don't know why people are acting shocked by this revelation.

    Seriously. I'm genuinely surprised that he recorded any albums sober.

    Brendon Urie has said how fucked up on drugs he was recording some past PATD records. Fat Mike says it and people are whispering in hushed tones and wringing their hands. :hearno::seeno::speakno:
