According to Nui Te Koha at Triple M, The Offspring have been tapped as one of the latest additions for next year’s Soundwave Festival, which takes place next year in Australia. Nui explained this in Triple M Melbourne’s The Hot Breakfast this morning, “I’m going to drop some bombs because I just can’t stop! Soundwave 2012 get ready for Offspring, get ready for Marilyn Manson and get ready for Evanescence!”
There has been no “official” confirmation from the band or the promoters of Soundwave, but stay tuned for updates.
The Offspring announced last Tuesday that they have begun recording their anticipated new record. It’s projected to be out in the first half of 2012 and will be a follow-up to 2008’s Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace.
