According to lead guitarist Noodles, The Offspring have been working in the studio with veteran producer Bob Rock and they’re in the home stretch of completing their long-awaited tenth studio album, their first since 2012.
The guitarist says: "This record is taking us a long time, but I think it's gonna be well worth the wait. 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."
As for when fans can expect to see the new OFFSPRING record released, Noodles said: "This fall. Definitely this year, hopefully fall. We were hoping for summer, but it looks like fall now."
In the meantime, The Offspring will team up with 311 and Gym Class Heroes for a summer tour that kicks off on July 25 in Mountain View, California and will hit 29 cities across North America before wrapping September 9 in Wichita.
