While NOFX have yet to produce an official breakup announcement, Fat Mike (born Michael Burkett) felt confident enough in their plans that he essentially revealed the news unprompted. A fan commented on an unrelated Instagram post about the hardcore band not coming to Canada enough while on tour, and Fat Mike responded, “Actually, We love Canada, it’s just that next year will be our last year. We will be announcing our final shows soon. It’s been an amazing run….”
Once fans picked up on the news, another user asked if NOFX would play in Los Angeles before breaking up. To that comment, Fat Mike responded, “Los Angeles will be the last place we play. It’s where we started, it’s where we’ll end.”
Check out Fat Mike’s revelatory Instagram post below. NOFX formed in 1983, so their impending breakup coincides with their 40th anniversary. Currently, the band is headlining their ongoing worldwide Punk in Drublic festivals (tickets on sale via Ticketmaster). Their 15th and (apparently final) album was 2021’s Single Album.
