Fat Mike Gets Strung Out


Fat Mike Gets Strung Out, a collaboration between Michael' Fat Mike' Burkett of NOFX and his friend Baz The Frenchman, is set to play at The Theatre at Ace Hotel, Sunday, October 15. Tickets are available via AXS, Friday, August 18, at 10AM.


The performance showcases the extraordinary project which takes NOFX’s beloved tunes and transforms them into classical masterpieces. The album officially drops Friday, September 15, but the first song, “Fuck Day Six,” is available now on all digital platforms. The album also includes "I'm A Rat," which previously dropped last month via their YouTube channel. 


Of the project, Fat Mike said, “Why make a strings album? It’s not because I always like to push my limits. It's because I wanted to hear what my songs sound like without guitar chords and those pesky vocals and backup vocals. I wanted to hear every note in its purest form. I wanted a sad song to sound sad even though there are no words. I wanted to make something I thought my parents would play at a dinner party….well, if they were alive. I wanted to make something that would be liked by more than just punk fans. But mostly, I just wanted to have fun making an album I had never made before…And guess what, Baz and I are almost done with the next album. Fun!”
