The Offspring to release new album this fall, have about ten songs done

The Offspring guitarist Noodles revealed in a recent interview with WRIF’s Meltdown that the band is in the process of finishing their long-awaited new album, which is expected to be released this fall. This is what he had to say:

“This record is taking us a long time, but I think it’s gonna be well worth the wait. We’ve been in the studio working a lot recently with [veteran producer] Bob [Rock] and finishing it up. We’ve got about ten songs done, a couple of more that just need lyrics. And then we may do one or two more, and it’s gonna be a done deal.”

Noodles was also asked when the record’s coming out, and his response was, “This fall. Definitely this year, hopefully fall. We were hoping for summer, but it looks like fall now.”

You can listen to the interview in full right here.

The new record will be The Offspring’s first one since 2012’s Days Go By, and they will be on tour with 311 around the same time it comes out.



L7 working on new album

Female alternative/punk rock legends L7 have announced that they are in the studio recording their first album in nearly 20 years, planned for release next year via Don Giovanni Records.

The band writes:

“After having an amazingly great experience with our L7 reunion tour in 2015 as well the release of a documentary on our band, “L7: Pretend We’re Dead”, the band felt inspired to do some songwriting and return to the studio once again. The end results were recording the tracks “Dispatch From Mar-a-Lago” and “I Came Back to Bitch”. Our first new tunes in 18 years!

We’ve had such a blast hanging out, writing, and recording with each other again that we decided to keep the ball rolling. More song ideas have been flowing out of us every time we get together and play, so we’ve decided to make a full length album which we will record this year.”

Even though the new record won’t be released until next year, you can pre-order it now via PledgeMusic.

L7 called it quits back in 2001, but reunited 14 years later. Their last full-length record Slap Happy was released in 1999.
