NOFX have confirmed two headline shows ahead of their appearance at the inaugural Download Festival next March.

Joining forces with fellow festival acts Hot Water Music and Bad Cop / Bad Cop, while local supergroup, Dad Religion (members of Frenzal Rhomb, Bodyjar & Clowns), will warm the punters up.

What’s left to say about NOFX? The reigning kings of punk rock have been wreaking havoc in the scene since they formed over 30 years ago. Gold records, sell out shows, their own reality TV show, they’ve even penned a New York Times bestselling memoir.

Continuing to push the boundaries of their music, lyrics and good taste in a way that’s as endearing as it is infectious. For that reason it’s remarkably apt that the band’s latest LP ‘First-Ditch Effort‘ is also their thirteenth because ominous black clouds hang over this collection of songs that see frontman / bassist Fat Mike exploring self-loathing and mortality in a more raw and honest way than he ever has before.

WATCH

Hot Water Music are back and they want you to know it. Their latest album, ‘Light It Up‘ is the effort of a band looking to stay in line with what they know, but also one that has aged gracefully, simmering instead of raging and stepping back into more mid-paced territory. The fact that Hot Water Music was never your typical punk band, but rather a beefy rock band with a spittle-flecked anger that reflected their roots in Gainesville Florida’s vibrant punk scene. They are a rock band that punk kids like.

WATCH

Bad Cop / Bad Cop have been hard at work over the last six months supporting their latest full-length, ‘Warriors‘. Their second full-length on FAT highlights the band besting personal demons, processing the election of 2016, and coming together as a band like never before. Bad Cop / Bad Cop condensed these struggles and emotions into a powerful, 11-song statement of purpose. ‘Warriors‘ bleeds with catchy hooks, strong melodies, attitude, and strength, all with honest, heart-felt lyrics.

Tickets go on sale 9AM on Wednesday December 6th.
