Mike Herrera had former founding member of MxPx, Andy Husted, on his podcast.
I ran into Andy on New Year's Eve as I was out with a group whooping it up on and he was doing the same. So we did some of that together. As we got to talking about our crazy world and life I invited him on the podcast. The next day, not too early we sat down at the studio and got to talking over a few beers. We talk about the present and the past. Some good stories about old MXPX recording sessions and our first tour van that would barely get us to gigs. We finally abandoned it after the brakes went out on our way home from a show. We had to down shift, E-brake it and coast through town. We made it without a...
Mike Herrera wrote up a blog post about the 23-year anniversary of MxPx and that they'll be doing a live video/music release in the future.
Oh and a brief update about our latest project. MXPX has been on a mission to raise funds to put together a high quality HD live video and music. Fortunately, thanks to many of you that purchased some items and experiences from the MXPX.com online store we made enough to capture and edit the show. Look for this before the end of the year. It's been long enough since we released a quality live recording. We've never had the level of quality we're investing in on this project. This is a very personal project for all of us because we want to capture...
Today is the 20th anniversary of Pokinatcha by MxPx. They have a little tribute up on their website for it.
One of the greatest enduring legacies from Pokinatcha is our beloved iconic Pokinatcha Punk logo. The Punk, designed by John Nissen has stood with us throughout all of the past 20 years, through various adaptations and reinterpretations. John designed all of the early Punk images — running, jumping, stomping, and skating. He was kind enough to come back and design this very special 20 Years of Pokinatcha logo just for the anniversary. Thank you John for 20 years of the Pokinatcha Punk!

After being together for over a decade, MxPx's side project band, Arthur, have officially called it a day.
“Arthur was never a full time touring band, but we were a band none the less, which is why we're formally BREAKING UP,” said band frontman Arthur. “It just doesn’t make sense to keep doing nothing, so we’ve collectively decided to pursue separate creative endeavors.”
“We want to thank all of you that listened to our music and supported Arthur throughout the last decade,” said Arthur, Edmund, Alexander and Zane. “We created music for you, and the best part is that our music will never die!”
MxPx's 1994 debut album Pokinatcha is being pressed onto vinyl for the first time ever. Available for pre-order through Tooth and Nail Records for $19.99 and shipping mid December. Double LP set, pressed on marbled, light blue, and red.
