THE OFFSPRING Has 'About Ten Songs Done' For New Studio Album

THE OFFSPRING lead guitarist Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman has confirmed that the band is putting the finishing touches on its long-awaited tenth studio album — three years after releasing a single called "Coming For You". Speaking to WRIF's Meltdown, he said (hear audio below): "This record is taking us a long time, but I think it's gonna be well worth the wait. We've been in the studio working a lot recently with [veteran producer] Bob [Rock] and finishing it up. 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."

THE OFFSPRING and 311 will team up for the "Never-Ending Summer Tour" with special guests GYM CLASS HEROES. The trek, produced by Live Nation, will kick off July 25 at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California and hit 29 cities across North America before wrapping September 9 in Wichita, Kansas.

THE OFFSPRING issued its Bob Rock-produced ninth album, "Days Go By", in 2012. It spent 2014 on the road promoting the 20th anniversary of its breakout album, "Smash", by performing the disc in its entirety at a number of shows.
