Last month Pitchfork broke news that hardcore punk super-group OFF! were facing charges in Arizona for the alleged theft of vegetable oil from an unidentified restaurant in the state. 

The band's eco-friendly tour van runs on vegetable waste, and the band were set to stand trial today for allegedly taking oil without permission, which, by the way, is the punkest way to obtain fuel for your green-minded tour van.

According to the band's publicist, Trevor de Brauw, the charges were dropped before the trial, and the band's tour (including a stop at Coachella) is scheduled to continue as planned.

Tour dates (none in Arizona) and the tune "Upsidedown" after the break.
