MxPx, along with P.O.D. and other artists, has a track on the soon to be released album "The Passion of the Christ: Songs" scheduled to be in stores on August 31st. This is not a movie soundtrack, but a "songs inspired by the movie" compilation.
The song is called "The Empire" and was written specifically for this album.
It was recorded in their own studio, The Clubhouse. Check out some more info here::
Check it out everyone! One of our all time favorite MxPx songs Chick Magnet has been chosen for the new soundtrack to the crazy movie Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle!

All "good" things must come to an end... or at least come to an end...
MxPx originally signed with A&M records in 1998 in an arrangement with Tooth and Nail allowing the band to have additional opportunities not available to the independent labels. However, in the world of corporate record companies, the small "boutique" A&M records became part of Interscope Records who clearly could not embrace MxPx even though the band's continued to have a growing fan base and toured to sell out venues. After years of frustration, MxPx and Interscope
(A&M) Records have parted ways...
Mike Herrera said, "For the first time since we got signed in 1993, we are unsigned. No contracts, no obligations, no problem. The future is opened wide."
Yuri added, "Now that we've fulfilled our obligation to Interscope I look forward to a new beginning."
The band is now in the studio working on new material and weighing all of their options... Creighton Burke, the band's long time manager added, "It's not everyday a band like MxPx are "Free Agents" they have a world of options available and I am as excited about this as anything that has ever come their way. The band sells records consistently and more importantly has great fans who care and want the band to win."
In an internet "petition" that was lobbying Interscope to release "Well Adjusted" as a single Burke commented, "I was stunned... I thought, while it was moot, this thing carried thousands of signatures all asking Interscope to release the single we thought should launch the band's last record, "Before, Everything and After." The song was part of a soft drink campaign that first aired during the Super Bowl.
Mike continued, "Anything can happen from here. We're really excited about what the future holds. We feel like schoolboys on the first day of summer."
Hey PXers... make sure you check out the tour section... we've recently added four more confirmed dates to the list to make it a total of six shows... these are sure to be great ones, so don't miss 'em!
For all you punks who missed the big tour, the band has added two festival gigs in the coming months! The guys will be making a trip across their home state to Washington State University in Pullman for a "Springfest" show April 24th. Woohoo! Go punks, and Go Cougs!
They will also be making their way to Denver to rawk Pepsi Center on August 8th for HoipolloiFest. Check it out!!
