Watch: The Offspring perform “The Kids Aren’t Alright” for Guitar Center Sessions

Dexter and Noodles from The Offspring

The Offspring recently taped an episode of DirecTV’s Guitar Center Sessions, which some of us (me) unfortunately didn’t realize was a thing until right now. The episode is slated to air this coming Friday (July 31st) at 9pm, though check your local listings to confirm that. (I don’t have DirecTV, but I’m assuming those of you who do will know where to find their listings).

The band released video from that Session’s performance of their classic track “The Kids Aren’t Alright” as a way of giving you a taste of what’s to come. Check it out below.

“The Kids Aren’t Alright” appears on The Offspring’s 1998 album “Americana.” Their latest album, “Days Go By,” was released in 2012. We’re told there’s a new one in the works, but you know how that goes…



The Offspring guitarist talks about new album, says there may be another single

The Offspring guitarist Noodles recently spoke to OC Register about the band’s plans for 2016, and revealed that it’s possible that there will be another new single before the end of the year. On why it’s taking so long to make a new album, Noodles explains:

“We definitely want to put out a whole record and we wanted to have it done by the end of the year, but we’ve been redoing our studio and going out on weekend gigs. It’s a different day and age in terms of making records, but with the Internet, you can put stuff out whenever you want. Our feeling with putting out ‘Coming for You’ was, why make the fans wait for two years. If we feel like we have something that we feel is good, let’s put it out now.”

The Offspring’s latest full-length studio album, Days Go By, was released in 2012 on Columbia Records. Earlier this year, they released a new single called “Coming for You“, which may appear on the new album.



Noodles offers update on new Offspring album

The Offspring guitarist Noodles recently gave The Aspen Times an update on the band’s new album, which will be their first since 2012′s Days Go By, and is expected to be released next year. He explains:

“We want to do a record, that’s the plan. But it’s taking forever. We released this song because we felt good about it immediately. It was one of the first one or two songs we finished, so we were like, ‘If we wait on this it might be another year, year-and-a-half. Why don’t we just put it out and see what happens?’”

Of course, that “new song” Noodles is referring to is The Offspring’s latest single “Coming for You”, which was released in January. The band last released the Summer Nationals EP in August 2014, which featured covers of songs originally by Bad Religion and Pennywise.

He also said that The Offspring don’t have a deadline for the next album, but hope it will be released in the near future. About the songwriting process, Noodles states:

“Before, we couldn’t really afford to spend all of our time in the studio. Dexter would usually write [songs] in his truck and them we would get together and hash them out. Now, it all ends up being written right in front of the microphone, and we change it there. It’s still pretty organic.”

Punk producer Thom Wilson (The Offspring, Bad Religion, T.S.O.L., Dead Kennedys, Social Distortion, The Vandals, etc.) dies

Epitaph Records has reported that influential punk producer Thom Wilson (who is probably best known for producing The Offspring‘s iconic 1994 album Smash) died on February 8th from unknown causes. Epitaph CEO and Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz issued the following statement:

“In ’82 when I was just getting started, Thom Wilson was a guy all the bands in the scene looked up to. He was the pro in our midst who loved punk and was willing to take kids under his wing to help them sound great. His work with TSOL and the Adolescents set the bar for everything that came after, including The Offspring’s multi-platinum LP Smash, which was the best-selling independent release of all time. Thom was a friend, a teacher and a great producer. He will be missed.”

As mentioned in the statement above, most of Wilson’s production and engineering work came in the punk scene. After starting his career in the 70′s by producing records soft rock acts Burton Cummings and Seals and Crofts, he began migrating to working on punk rock records in 1981, first teaming with Stiv Bators on his Disconnected album. He also worked with T.S.O.L. on their first four releases, The Adolescents on their self-titled 1981 debut, and then went on to produce/engineer records by The Offspring, The Dead Kennedys, The Vandals, Bad Religion, Social Distortion, Face to Face, Iggy PopThe Bouncing Souls and The Aquabats, among others.

Dying Scene sends Wilson’s family condolences.

Dexter Holland speaks to Loudwire about new Offspring album

In an interview with Loudwire, The Offspring frontman Dexter Holland offered some updates on the band’s anticipated new album, which will be their first since 2012′s Days Go By. Asked if the band was still working on the record, Holland replied:

“We’re not that clever [laughs], we’re just lazy. Every other time we’ve done a record, we hunker down and go into the studio for a year or however long it takes. We just decided not to do it that way this time. We thought let’s just do a couple of songs, work on them when we feel inspired and when we have it done, we thought, why wait? Let’s just go ahead and put it out.”

Holland was also asked about The Offspring’s upcoming plans and a possible release date for the new album, and his response was, “We’ve been recording the album at a real relaxed pace, like I said. Just when we feel inspired and go in and eventually we’ll get it together and go in and really finish it — knock it out. In the meantime we’ve got a bunch of touring lined up for the summer. We’re going to be doing a lot of stuff in the U.S. and going to Europe towards the end of the summer for festivals. What do they say in Spinal Tap? The world and elsewhere.”

Last month, The Offspring released a new single “Coming for You“, which will likely be included on the new album. The band last released the Summer Nationals EP in August 2014, which featured covers of songs originally by Bad Religion and Pennywise.
