The Offspring

Album: TBA
Release Date: TBA
Early in 2015, when these pop-punk veterans released "Coming for You," their first new song in three years, it whetted an appetite for an 11th album that the band has thus far been slow in satisfying. "We want to do a record, that's the plan," guitarist Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman told the Aspen Times in July 2015. "But it's taking forever. … We released this song because we felt good about it immediately. It was one of the first one or two songs we finished, so we were like, 'If we wait on this it might be another year, year-and-a-half. Why don't we just put it out and see what happens?" Frontman Dexter Holland offered a simple explanation to Loudwire for the project's long, slow gestation: "We're just lazy. Every other time we've done a record, we hunker down and go into the studio for a year or however long it takes. We just decided not to do it that way this time."
