“The record is almost done — legitimately almost done. I think we have 10 songs done and a couple of more we’re working… just writing lyrics for. And then we might do one or two more on top of that.”

As for when fans can expect to see the release of the record, Noodles said: “It looks like it’s gonna be fall. We were hoping to have it out this summer. I was recently informed it looks more like fall now.”

And lastly, he said that fans may get a chance to hear a new Offspring track during the band’s live shows this summer, “We’ve got one of the new songs already ready to go. It’s one of the upbeat ones. The working title is ‘Ripping’. So it kind of gives you an idea of what the song is about. And I think that we’ll be playing that over the summer.”

L7 working on new album

Female alternative/punk rock legends L7 have announced that they are in the studio recording their first album in nearly 20 years, planned for release next year via Don Giovanni Records.

The band writes:

“After having an amazingly great experience with our L7 reunion tour in 2015 as well the release of a documentary on our band, “L7: Pretend We’re Dead”, the band felt inspired to do some songwriting and return to the studio once again. The end results were recording the tracks “Dispatch From Mar-a-Lago” and “I Came Back to Bitch”. Our first new tunes in 18 years!

We’ve had such a blast hanging out, writing, and recording with each other again that we decided to keep the ball rolling. More song ideas have been flowing out of us every time we get together and play, so we’ve decided to make a full length album which we will record this year.”

Even though the new record won’t be released until next year, you can pre-order it now via PledgeMusic.

L7 called it quits back in 2001, but reunited 14 years later. Their last full-length record Slap Happy was released in 1999.
