Yes, we’re almost constantly getting some Offspring-related news, but this time the band has posted two pictures from the studio on their TwitPic account. Both of them depict some musicians playing violins and saxophones. Hmm… this is something uncommon in The Offspring camp. They have never had any musicians playing violins or saxophones on their albums before, it looks like there will be a new musical direction on the new record.
The (forever) anticipated new album will arrive in the first half of 2012 and will be a follow-up to 2008’s Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace. A week has passed since they actually started recording it after false speculation and several false starts.
