On the making of Smash, frontman Dexter Holland commented to OC Weekly:

A lot of the bands were great back then and made great songs but didn’t necessarily have a lot of melody, and that’s what we were trying to do, combine those two things.

The Offspring’s latest release was Days Go By, which was dropped in June 2012. The band, which is currently unsigned, began working on new material with producer Bob Rock last summer.

Random Cover Song: The Offspring – “Sin City” (AC/DC)

Posted by ChrisDude on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 8:34 PM (PST)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Tonight’s cover comes from the legendary O.C. punk band The Offspring covering “Sin City”, originally by the iconic Australian hard rock band AC/DC. The original is taken from AC/DC’s 1978 album Powerage, while The Offspring’s cover version appears as a b-side to their 2001 single “Million Miles Away”.

You can listen to both versions of “Sin City” below.

The Offspring to release new music for free?

Posted by ChrisDude on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at 9:19 PM (PST)

The Offspring guitarist Noodles recently spoke to Australia’s Scene Magazine about the band’s “departure” from Columbia Records. He stated the band is open to possibility of releasing new music for fans to download for free:

“At this point, all options are open. Either we go back and try and renegotiate a deal with Columbia or work with someone else or maybe even make our music free on the internet. In a way it’s very liberating, as well as being scary, not knowing what to do and having to figure it out for ourselves, but you know, we’ve been doing this for quite a while and I’m sure we’ll land on our feet.”

The Offspring last released Days Go By in June 2012, and are currently working on a new album with Bob Rock. They also have new singles in the works.

The Offspring working on new singles

Posted by ChrisDude on Thursday, October 24, 2013 at 8:46 PM (PST)

In an interview with May the Rock Be With You, The Offspring bassist Greg K. states that the band’s current focus is to release new singles rather than a full-length studio album. He explains:

“We’ve been working on a couple of singles, we’re not sure what we’re going to do with them yet, if we’re going to put them on the internet and send them to radio or whatever. As far as a full scale album there’s nothing in the works, if we do something it wouldn’t be until at least next year, but we’re still moving forward and still going to keep trying to put out new stuff.”

He also discussed The Offspring’s departure from Columbia Records and whether they will release their next album independently, “I think so, we still don’t know yet, we’re going to see what else is out there, at this point as far as albums go it seems that it’s easier to do it yourself, I mean the scale right now we’ve done, I don’t know what a record company is going to do as far as pushing our name or anything like that, so it might just be a simple thing to do it ourselves.”

The Offspring last released Days Go By in June 2012, and are currently working on a new album with Bob Rock.
