Due Nov. 9 via Epitaph, the disc will boast 26 past favorites and a new tune dedicated to fans and compatriots, "Wore Out the Soles of My Party Boots."
The set includes such early cuts as "Day to Daze," from the band's 1989 Epitaph set "S&M Airlines," to "Franco Unamerican" and "The Separation of Church & Skate" from last year's "The War on Errorism" (Fat Wreck Chords).
Although never afraid to poke fun and provoke its audience, in recent years, the band's outspoken left-leaning stance has put it on the front lines of political activism, fusing music and message in the grandest of egalitarian punk rock traditions.
Released in May 2003, "The War on Errorism" debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart and No. 44 on The Billboard 200. It has sold 174,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Across two decades and more than a dozen releases, the act has recorded for Mystic, Epitaph and vocalist/bassist Fat Mike's own Fat Wreck Chords. Through its career, NOFX has sold more than 4.5 million units worldwide, according to Epitaph.
