Dexter Holland on the next Offspring record

Last night, when The Offspring were interviewed on Rockline, a fan asked the band if there will be anything “hardcore” on their next album. Frontman Dexter Holland talked a little a bit about it, responding:

“There’s hardcore on every record. You know…I mean, we grew up inspired by punk rock and that’s really what made us wanna start the band and it’s kind of the core of who we are musically as a band, and so, that part always comes out on every record, I think we would never get away from that completely. With that being said, we do from time to time, you know, experiment and try different stuff and that’s what keeps it fresh for us and keeps the records interesting for us, but I mean, we’re basically a punk band.”

You can download the 40-minute interview right here. It was posted on one of the threads from The Offspring’s website.

The Offspring’s latest album Days Go By was released in June on Columbia Records.

    “We’re basically a punk band” since when? the last time these guys produced any genuine punk music was before Americana. I used to love them back in the day. Ignition, Smash, Ixnay they were all really good records but for the last 10 or so years they have been nothing but an awful generic pop band so far removed from the band that everyone loved.
