Ned-Rock 108 recently conducted an interview with The Offspring frontman Dexter Holland, who revealed that they have four songs completed for their long-awaited new album, which they expect to finish later this year. Here’s what he had to say (as transcribed by Ultimate-Guitar.com):
“Well, I’ve been busy doing homework. But now that’s done, so we’re…now we’ve been working in the studio a bunch, it’s kinda weird now because you don’t really do an album the way you used to. ‘Cause people kinda…they look at your album and you go, “OK, what’s next?”. So you’re almost like better off releasing songs here and there kind of. So we put out “Coming For You”. It was just last year, I think? Something like that. And we’ve got like three songs done, and a fourth song almost done, so we’re just gonna get back in the studio as soon as we can. So how will it take us to do eight more songs? I don’t know. We should be able to do that this year.”

The new Offspring album will be the band’s first since 2012’s Days Go By. No word on a release date yet, but we’ll keep you posted as more details come to light.
