While talking about his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, which he received last May, Dexter said, “No one calls me doctor. I was tied up with all of that for a while but we’re back in the studio. I think I want to do like an EP. It’s kind of what people are doing these days and it makes for less time in between stuff. It has been five years for us so we have a few songs together and I’m hoping to get something out by early next year.”
The Offspring’s last full-length studio album, Days Go By, was released in 2012. The band recently announced three shows at The Observatory in Santa Ana, which take place next week and see The Offspring continue celebrating the 20th anniversary of their fourth album Ixnay on the Hombre.
