Old Man Markley has announced details for a brand new two-song 7″ called Stupid Today. The EP is scheduled for release on May 6, 2014 via Fat Wreck Chords. Bassist Joey Balls describes the title track and accompanying NOFX cover:
“[It’s] a song about reluctantly riding the relationship roller coaster. Fat Mike coined it our ‘Burt Bacharach song’. I think it’s a compliment?… Reeko is our latest punk rock cover. In the original version, NOFX plays the first half slow and punks up the second half of the tune. We added an intro (very ‘Herojauna’-esque), did the verses fast and end the song slow and folky. There’s another NOFX song paid tribute to within this cover (a cover within a cover), just so NOFX fans really get how much we love NOFX.”
Artwork for the 7″ was created by Chris Shary (Descendents, Snuff). Pre-order and album details can be found here.
