Noodles confirms new Offspring album is finished

In a recent interview with Canada’s Halifax Today, The Offspring guitarist Kevin “Noodles” Wasserman revealed that the band’s long-awaited new album has been completed and they are currently looking for a distribution deal in order to release it early next year. This is what he had to say:

“The artwork needs to be done and we have a rough track listing. We’ve even gone and done more music since. We just need a distribution deal, and we want that done by the end of the year. Then we can release early next year.”

The new Offspring record will be the band’s first since 2012’s Days Go By, and probably the first one without original bassist Gregory “Greg K.” Kriesel, who hasn’t performed live with the band since last year, and is one of the three members to appear on all of their records since their 1989 self-titled debut.

Greg K. recently sued Noodles and frontman Bryan “Dexter” Holland, both of whom had prevented him from being involved in Offspring-related activities, including studio recordings and live performances; there’s currently no indication of who performs bass on the band’s new record. Filling in for Greg live over the past year has been H2O guitarist and Offspring touring member Todd Morse.



The Offspring say there will be new music in 2020

Fans have been patiently awaiting a new record from The Offspring since they released their last full-length to date Days Go By back in 2012. Well, the band recently updated their Facebook page confirming that next year will see new music from the band. No further more details are available at this point, but what it is known is that the new album was produced by Bob Rock and will likely be their first one without their bassist Gregory “Greg K.” Kriesel.

Greg K., who hadn’t performed live with The Offspring since last year, recently filed a lawsuit against his two of his bandmates  vocalist/guitarist Bryan “Dexter” Holland and guitarist Kevin “Noodles” Wasserman  alleging trademark infringement and breach of partnership agreement over the rights to the Offspring name. Stepping in for Greg live has been H2O guitarist and Offspring touring member Todd Morse.

Along with Dexter and Noodles, Greg is one of the three members to appear on all of The Offspring’s albums since their 1989 self-titled debut. It’s not clear if he did actually perform bass on the new record.



Dexter Holland gives some more insight into the new album from The Offspring

The Offspring guitarist and lead singer Dexter Holland recently gave Kerrang! an update on their new album. Dexter stated:

It sounds like our old shit! That’s what I’m supposed to say, right? I don’t really know how to describe it. I guess it’s punk rock, but then we throw in a couple of songs that aren’t what you’d normally predict. We have a lot of really fast stuff on there, plus a couple of things that you might not really expect from us. But I’m really really happy with it. It’s not completely finished, but it is 98% finished. So we’re trying to put together a plan to release it.

The follow-up to 2012’s Days Go By is reportedly set for release later this year, and Noodles said a while ago that they were working on two albums, though it’s not clear if it will result in separate or double album(s).

The Offspring apparently still working on new album

The Offspring guitarist Noodles recently gave Junkee an update on the band’s long-awaited new album. He’s quoted as saying:

“Yeah, we’ve been spending a bit of time in the studio with Bob Rock, who worked on our last two albums as well. He’s great, man — we get along with him really well. We’ve got a bunch of new songs that we’re preparing to go in and record right now.

I think there’s a record’s worth in there, but we’re thinking that maybe the songs are just a little too different. We know there’s a song or two on every record that comes out of left-field for us, but it’s more than just a couple this time. Right now, we’re entertaining the idea of doing two records — one where we can put all of these, and another of straight-up Offspring songs.”

The follow-up to 2012’s Days Go By is reportedly set for release next year, and Noodles said a while ago that they were working on two albums, though it’s not clear if it will result in separate or double album(s).



The Offspring back in the studio

The Offspring have been in the studio on and off for the last five years working on a new album with producer Bob Rock. This time, the band (who had just finished touring North America with 311) posted a picture from the studio via Facebook, with the caption reading, “Back to work.”

Whether or not this update means they are still working on the follow-up to 2012’s Days Go By remains to be seen. Guitarist Noodles recently stated that they might release two albums next year.



The Offspring working on two new albums?

The Offspring guitarist Noodles guitarist recently talked to Music Feeds about the band’s long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s Days Go By, which will be released late this year or next year.

On the status of the record and working with Bob Rock, who is producing it, Noodles said, “Yeah, we’ve been working with Bob on and off on this record for five years, really. But we had a real productive string this year, in the earlier part of the year, we had probably five or six songs that we did just right then and it started to feel like ‘maybe this is the direction we should be going with this record? A little bit more straightforward Offspring stuff’. So we have a whole record or more worth of stuff here — I think we’re looking at making two records out of it — you know, like, splitting ’em up and coming out with a pretty straightforward punk and rock record that sounds like us, and then maybe saving some of the crazier stuff for another record.”

When asked about the “crazier stuff” and what it sounds like, Noodles said, “Well there’s always a song that we do [on each album] — because it’s just fun for us to experiment in the studio where we take different sounds — so sometimes we’ll try some piano or keyboard kind of sound… We have a song that has a lot of horns in it, like a full-on horn section in it, and we’ve been working on that song for a long time. I think that one might be the the one kind of wacky one that we keep on this record, well at least I hope it is! Like, we love this song, it’s such a fun song. It’s a risk to put it out there, but at some point you’ve just gotta say ‘screw it’ man and just go with what you’re feeling and let the chips fall where they may. So I think we’re gonna do that.”

And finally Noodles was asked if there are plans to release new music this year. His response was, “I don’t know, we were hoping to — we were hoping to have something, maybe like a record deal in place this Fall [that’s Spring in Australia], but we don’t have anything — you know, any deals — going. We’ve been talking with a bunch of different labels and distributors, but so far nothing’s really stuck. So we’re not sure how we’re gonna do this. I mean at this point, the way things are distributed, we’re thinking we could even maybe do it ourselves?”



The Offspring and 311 cover each other’s songs

Coinciding with the Never-Ending Summer tour, The Offspring have released a cover of 311‘s 1996 hit “Down”, while the latter have released a cover version of The Offspring’s 1994 hit “Self Esteem”. You can hear the new renditions on Spotify or Apple Music, or below.

311’s Nick Hexum recently spoke to Billboard.com about how this idea came together: “It was the Offspring’s idea, and a great idea. They said, ‘We had the idea to cover your song, and we’ve done it,’ and I was like, ‘Wow! I have to hear this,’ ’cause it’s such a signature song. Were they going to cover it faithfully or rework it?’ They reworked it just enough; There’s punk to it, and Dexter (Holland) actually does a killer job of rapping SA (Martinez)’s parts in more of a punk rock style, with fast drums. We were so blown away, It was so my fun to hear that. So we returned the favor and reggaefied (‘Self Esteem’), which is probably my favorite song of theirs. It’ll be a lot of fun to give the fans new versions of these songs they love so much.”

The Offspring’s first album since 2012’s Days Go By is tentatively due for release this year. 311 released their last record Mosaic a year ago and are reportedly working on new music.
