NOFX CELEBRATE 30TH ANNIVERSARY WITH LP BOX SET

Quintessential California punk band NOFX celebrate their monumental 30th anniversary by announcing the release of a limited edition deluxe LP collection of every studio album they have released, from 1988’s Liberal Animation through 2012’s Self Entitled on February 19th 2013. This limited edition collection will be available for preorder today at: www.nofxboxset.com.

The must-have collection of only 2500 pressings will include all of NOFX’s studio albums, as well as the 2xLP for the "7 Inch of the Month Club," which has never been available before. Liberal Animation, S & M Airlines, Ribbed, White Trash, Two Heebs & A Bean, Punk In Drublic, Heavy Petting Zoo , So Long And Thanks For All The Shoes, Pump Up The Valuum , The Decline, War On Errorism, 7-Inch of the Month Club, Wolves in Wolves Clothing, Coaster and Self-Entitled are packaged in a beautiful hardbound anniversary box and pressed on colored vinyl with exclusive colors available through both Fat Wreck Chords and Epitaph Records.

In addition, all box sets will include a life-size version of the band’s infamous stage banner and 500 LPs will be signed by the band. As a perfect gift for vinyl fans, collectors, and NOFX fanatics alike, the LP Box Set is limited edition and will undoubtedly sell out fast.

Formed in Los Angeles back in 1983, NOFX have sold well over 6 million albums in their illustrious career. Forged in the same fiery furnaces of the L.A. punk rock scene that gave us Bad Religion, Suicidal Tendencies, Germs and Descendents. NOFX emerged as punk rock juggernauts when they joined forces with Epitaph in 1989 and went on to release a string of crucial punk records. Their first major breakthrough came in the form of 1990’s Ribbed, still a fan favorite, followed up by now-classics White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean and Punk in Drublic, the latter selling well over a million copies. That was a wildly successful decade for NOFX as the band popularized the Warped Tour and was the flagship band for the skate/surf/snow culture of the 1990’s.

Now on Fat Mike’s own label, Fat Wreck Chords, their third decade was even more fruitful, which again speaks to NOFX's indomitable longevity. The band’s decade-long ban on doing the mainstream press and media was lifted as they sought to actively share their dissent for the Bush Administration and speak out against the invasion of Iraq. And once the floodgates were open, NOFX and their “Rock Against Bush” movement were everywhere: Newsweek, Rolling Stone, New York Times, Howard Stern, and network television. All that high profile interest and hype was reflected in the success of their 2003 record, The War on Errorism, which was the #1 independent record in the country at the time if its release and topped Billboard’s Indie chart. The new NOFX full-length, Self Entitled, released on September 11th, is their 12th studio record. A return to their aggressive roots, the 12 tracks embrace the hostile early LA punk sound while maintaining the trademark technical and melodic sound that NOFX is renowned for.
