Wow, this must be Offspring week or something. First, we reported they were streaming one of their early demos on YouTube, then we reported that they posted a brief update on the recording process of their new album and then last night we reported that they posted pictures from the studio. Well this time, AJ Maddah, the boss of the Australian festival Soundwave, has addressed some rumors of The Offspring being on the bill next year and mentions their new album being mixed in January or February. He said, “hoping to have [Offspring] on the 1st announcement, but they now have to mix album in Jan/Feb so hopefully SW13.”
After false speculation and several false start, The Offspring have been in the studio for a week recording their new album that is 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.
