Great news, everyone! While we all patiently await NOFX’s follow up to 2016′s First Ditch Effort, it looks like we’ll be getting some brand new music from Fat Mike’s alter ego Cokie The Clown.
That’s right, for the first time since 2009, Fat Mike will be bringing back his dark side-project for a new 10-track release titled You’re Welcome. The album, which features Travis Barker on drums and Guns N’ Roses’ Dizzy Reed on keys, is bound to be rather emotional for the outspoken bassist/vocalist as it dives into some pretty deep subject matter.
“The nearly year-long recording sessions [for ‘You’re Welcome’] are a glimpse into what lies beneath the madness and genius of Fat Mike,” says the album’s press release. “Here he lays open his deepest regrets, fears, and experiences in a raw and thoughtful manner. It is not a happy record.”
For a taste of what’s to come from Fat Mike, be sure to check out “the most uplifting song on the album,” “Punk Rock Saved My Life.” Afterward, to pre-order the LP before it hits stores April 26th, head here.
