Alexisonfire Release First New Song In Ten Years. Monday 18th February 2019 NOFX are back with the second installment of their legendary 7" of the Month Club. Get ready to get your mitts on brand new NOFX songs that no one else has heard before! As you may have picked up via the NOFX socials, they've been recording with the legend, Bill Stevenson (uh, Descendents), and have racked up a massive amount of material. While they continue to tinker away, you will be treated to a preview of what may or may not land on their new album. We're not even sure what songs they'll give us; but we do know the club will feature alternate/demo versions of the recordings. Each 7" will be pressed on colored vinyl and will ship two at a time to help ease shipping costs, especially for our friends overseas!
As for the art, once again, they're relying on you, their loyal followers, to provide the cover art. So, dust off those crayons and get to work! The 12 winning artists will receive a free subscription to the club...not to mention bragging rights to their friends. The details for artwork submissions can be found here!
Now that you are all caught up, watch Fat Mike do a more entertaining, less detail-oriented job of explaining the 7" of the Month Club below, and then order yours today!

Of The Month - October 2016 - The Beards
The Beards - Sadly all good things must come to an end and this year see’s everyone’s favourite Australian Bearded rockers The Beards calling it a day, the band who formed back in 2005 have made a career of singing about Beards and in the ten years they have been together as a band they have toured constantly and released 4 studio albums titled ‘The Beards’, ‘Beards, Beards, Beards’, ‘Having A Beard Is The New Not Having A Beard’, ‘The Beards Album’ and also the most recent greatest hits ‘Ten Long Years, One Long Beard’ and every song on these albums is about beards.
Back at the start of the year the band announced that they were calling it a day and frontman Johann Beardraven had this to say “We feel like we've achieved what we set out to achieve through music, everybody now agrees that beards are great, so the time has come for us to rest on our laurels. But not before we go around one last time and say a heartfelt thankyou to everyone who's come out to see us over the years, and especially to everyone who's grown a beard, or adopted a pro-beard attitude.”
The band have spent the majority of the year touring across Australia saying a final farewell to their homebound fans and now the band are currently touring across mainland Europe before saying a final farewell to their UK fans in the middle of October and it is the perfect time to see the band on the live circuit as not only is it a farewell tour but the band will also be playing two jam-packed sets of bearded anthems from their impressive back catalogue, incorporating both the stripped-back acoustic sound that helped them gain radio play in Australia, and the infectious pop-rock that has won them a legion of fans worldwide.
The Beards are much-loved by audiences around the world for their refreshingly original concept, highly-interactive live shows and trademark sense of humour. Don't miss this hugely-entertaining Aussie phenomenon's victory lap of Europe this October.
