The Offspring Complete Work on New Album


Story by Charles Ken

California punk rock band are on target to release their new album in 2012

New music from the Offspring is on the way. Roughly four years have passed since the punk-pop band have churned out any new music, but the guys are at long last ready to unleash their new tracks to the world. Last weekend, singer Dexter Holland sent out a message via the group’s Twitter account to drop the news that a new assortment from the Offspring is on the way. The disc will be the follow-up to the band’s 2008 release, “Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace,” which spawned the rock radio hits “You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid” and “Hammerhead.”

“Leaving the studio in Hollywood now,” Holland tweeted. “The record is finished.” The California punk rock band’s upcoming album will be their first drummer Pete Parada in toe. The band has yet to announce exactly when the album, which is their ninth, is set to drop and what it will be called.

Guitarist Kevin “Noodles” Wasserman also tweeted out some news about the upcoming set: “New song title: ‘Hurting As One.’ It sounds emo, but its not. Its punk. Kinda like ‘Something to Believe In.’” So, whether it’s punk, emo or simply rock, band members are noticeably pleased with the outcome of the album.

The Offspring are also set to take their high-energy tracks on the road this summer, and their festival appearances already count Rock In Rio festival in Portugal, Punkspring festival in Japan and Denmark’s Skive festival. The guys are expected to announce a full slate of U.S. tour dates shortly, in conjunction with the CD release.
