Fat Mike of NOFX is starting a new podcast called “UnSafe Words” for sexuality and relationship advice.
Fat Mike is on the latest episode of Amoeba’s “What’s in My Bag?”
NOFXhave released the new song “Fish in a Gun Barrel.”
The Punk In Drublic Festival has announced it’s first 2019 US date will take place in Portland, OR on July 12th at Portland Meadows. NOFX, MxPx, Bad Religion, Anti-Flag, and Mean Jeans are all slated to perform.
Dan Ozzi sat down with Fat Mike for a new interview where he addresses the Las Vegas controversy last year:
You guys have been around since the 80s. Do you think your style of comedy can still work now?
Yeah, sure. I don’t know about the U.S. The U.S. is turning into some Puritan-Quaker country where everyone gets offended.
Do you think a band like NOFX could start up now?
I don’t know. The people defending me when I said that, it wasn’t very many people. The only two I can think of were Laura Jane [Grace] and Sick of It All. No one wanted to get on my side. No one wanted to touch us, which was why I wrote on the internet that we got banned in the U.S.
Fat Mike sat down with PunkNews.org to talk about his recent Cokie the Clown album:
It makes me so happy because, some people hate it or hate me, or whatever, that’s going to happen. The people that like record, it touches them to their core. I was talking to Mikey Erg after the New York show, and Mikey was like, “I’ve listened to this record eight times today. This is maybe the best record I’ve ever heard.” Can you imagine how great that feels? I was talking to Josh of Queens of the Stone Age and he said the same thing, “this is one of the best records that I’ve ever heard.” It so fucking… I spent like a year and a half recording it.
Cokie the Clown’s new album can be streamed below. This is Fat Mike of NOFX’s project with Travis Barker on drums.
Cokie the Clown has released a video for “Negative Reel.”
Fat Mike will release You’re Welcome, the debut full-length album by his Cokie The Clown persona, on April 26th via Fat Wreck Chords. Today he’s debuted the lead single “Punk Rock Saved My Life” with Travis Barker on drums and pre-orders are now up.

Every NOFX show in the U.S. has been canceled. A note from Fat Mike can be found below.
NOFX have released a lengthier statement and apology for their recent horrific comments. You can read that in full below.
At the Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival, NOFX’s guitarist Eric Melvin joked (and I use that term very loosely here) that “I guess you only get shot in Vegas if you’re in a country band” and Fat Mike replied with “At least they were country fans and not punk rock fans.” So, yeah, fuck that. The band has posted a statement apologizing, the festival has condemned the remarks, and Stone Brewing Company have revoked their beer sponsorship with the band.
NOFX will be releasing a new Live in a Dive album on August 3rd. The album is a performance of Ribbed in full. You can check out “Just the Flu” on Spotify and Apple Music.
