The Offspring’s Noodles hopes new album will be released this year

It’s been approximately five years since The Offspring released their last album Days Go By, but in a recent interview, guitarist Noodles expressed hope that their long-awaited follow-up to that album will be released this year, and revealed that they have tracked down four new songs.

He said, “We’re hoping to get it out this year, yeah! We’ve been working on it. It’s going real slow. [laughs] We’ve been in and out of the studio for a few years now. We want to get some songs out before we did the whole record. Like, “Coming for You,” whenever that was released.”

Noodles was also asked if the new album has a title yet, and his response was, “No, not until we have a bunch of songs that are kind of cohesive. We’re not really far enough along to figure out a vibe or concept. We have about four songs that are done. Not even at the halfway point yet.”

Punk Rock Holiday, 2017 releases full lineup

Europe’s most idyllic punk rock gathering has released its full lineup and oh boy is it a cracker. Prominent acts making the trip to the picturesque alpine valleys of Tolmin include The Offspring, Propagandhi, Face to Face, Anti-Flag, and Less Than Jake. Of course, as well as these legendary ‘house hold name’ bands, there will also be a whole host of lesser known groups gracing the frankly beautiful Beach Stage. Acts here include the likes of Actionmen, Sombulance, and 69 Enfermos.
