Speaking on the latest release and the storyline developing across the three music videos to date, Fat Mike comments

“It’s like American Me meets The Three Amigos.”

“When Fat Mike reached out for me to collaborate with his new band, Codefendants, it was a no brainer. Really had a blast making this”

Today’s release of “Bad Business” comes in the aftermath of the earlier release of the group’s first two tracks, “Abscessed” and “Suicide By Pigs”. Watch both videos and get the backstory for “Bad Business” by clicking HERE or clicking on the image below and you’ll be waiting to see what happens next. Since their official release in November 2022, the two videos have clocked up 131,000 YouTube Views and 75,000 Spotify streams. The band has also announced their first tour date in Austin, TX as part of the NOFX Final Tour on April 22 at Carson Creek Ranch.

Sam King from Get Dead’s graffiti crew were giving tattoos and making flash art to raise money to help rapper Ceschi Ramos when he was in prison. Months later they met at the Gilman Street Project in Berkeley, California. They bonded, talking about their love of hip-hop and punk rock, over a bottle of Jameson. They didn’t know it yet, but they had just started Codefendants.

They began recording songs two years later in Los Angeles with Fat Mike from NOFX as producer. Soon after Fatty joined the band, they decided to make an album that sounded like nothing else – a completely genre-fluid album – a cross between hip hop, new-wave, flamenco, and the Beatles. And thus a whole new genre – Crime Wave was born. That album will be released via Fat Wreck imprint, Bottles To The Ground, this year (more news on that to come soon).

The group filmed a five- song video series that will probably not be seen on YouTube due to the subject matter, but will be available at The short movie, written by Fat Mike and made up of the five music videos, features the legendary rapper DOC, N8NOFACE, 2Mex, and Stacey Dee from Bad Cop / Bad Cop.


All that Fat Mike has to say about the new Codefendants album is,


”Get ready for the best aural sex of your life.”
