Well let‘s see what‘s new? Still working on the record over here. Most of
the music is recorded and we‘re working on vocals now. We counted up the
other day, we actually demo‘d 23 songs for this CD. Wow! That‘s a new
record for us. Of those we‘ve recorded 13. Will they all be on the album?
I don‘t know! We‘ll see how they turn out. Maybe we‘ll cut one, or maybe
we‘ll write a couple more. Because we‘re artists we‘re flaky like that.

What else – looking forward to playing in Japan in August…you guys going?
We‘ve played the Summer Sonic festival before, it‘s a great time and a great
crowd. And, I wouldn‘t be surprised if there was a third show added….

We have a new guy helping us out on the web side of things, so look for some
changes happening on our website, and check out the Myspace page too…He
might even help us to update more often. Then again..


Cool !! :D

Awesome! They've recorded 13 SONGS! And if they cut one, that'd still be 12 songs! I hope they record a couple more. :) And I hope they don't count things like Neocon and Prison as songs...

Dexter, you vague flakey motherfucker. :p

But seriously, 13 songs is good. Why the hell 23 demos though, if it's going to be a normal-length album?

Either their hit-or-miss ratio is dropping, percentage-wise they're writing more bad shit than good, or they just thought "let's save 'em for B-sides" or something.

Meh.

Still, the ball is rollin', won't be long now.

I couldnt believe my eyes when i saw an update lol Well its only been a lil over a month, and thats not too bad. Yes 13 songs isnt bad. Yeah as long as an intro doesnt count. It would be great if they could add couple more but Im not greedy:) Besides, its about quality not quantity. Thanks Dexter for the update!!

Well... If it's going to be a normal sized album about 13/14 songs would be pretty awesome and that means they could use some of the other demo's to start on a new album right away and we wouldn't have to wait as long as 3 years for the next album! :p

I hope they really do complete some of the better demo's and get another new album out within 2 years time at least. :)

Thomas
05-08-2007, 08:33 PM
Considering the fact that the most actual songs they've had on any album was 13 on Smash, I say this is a very good sign. If they wrote 23 songs, and only picked 13, that means that they are of high(er) quality than at least 10 other songs. Things are really looking up for this album.

That's actually a pretty good point. If they already have a bunch of other songs "done" (as far as writing goes), then they will have a head start on the new album. I mean, if they didn't make this album, there is probably a reason why, but they could easily do touch-ups and stuff to them to make them worthy of release. I think this would mean that another album might be due sometime soon after this one.

...because 10 songs were not deemed keepers, which would by definition mean the keepers are better? :P

05-08-2007, 10:41 PM
thats awesome, i reckon we'll probably have a larger album than normal, im not expecting all 23 songs to go on the album tho, i think that would be a sorta miracle. but im guessing maybe 15 songs? great if it was even more.
see if we wait good things will happen....i hope

By the band's definition, maybe. The band defines a lot of shitty songs worthy of release, and a few good ones unworthy ("Mission From God, "Living In Chaos" demo, etc).

I don't mean to bitch, I'm just saying out of 10 axed songs, some of those are likely to be better in a lot of people's minds than than at least a few tracks on the album.

Are you retarded? He said in the journal that there won't be 23 songs. Approximately 13. Officially.

its great news, it sounds like dexter's really happy with things and so am i!! i think 13 recorded songs is great and that gives them the option to cut one if they feel its not as good as they thought at first. i think we'll be getting at least 12 songs but maybe more. i agree with whoever said that if they had 23 demos and have recorded 13, these should be the better songs. i just hope thats right! i hope they sort the tracks soon and start talking about release dates and album titles etc. im so excited about this album now!

anyway im really happy with this, its made my day! :D

Great news!

Venom, stop being so fucking negaive. You know very well that they can make a very good album off 13 demos. Now, they have 23 demos. It is good for songs, individually and it is good for the whole album, they can arrange it as they want. They have many options.

Well, they are finishing vocals now. The mixing stage then, probably June and July. Japan festival in August. It could be out in September...

I hope that Dexter will tell us more specific info about the record during the mixing. If not, we will know something in August for sure.

Well this is ironic, I've been waiting for an update, and then for the 2 days when I have no access to a computer, there's an update! It's a sign.

Sounds dead promising though, hopefully we'll get to hear some of the songs that don't make it on the album either.. *next update - demos* :D

It would be awesome if the new web guy can get in to film them recording. Not to put up right away, but after the album is released.
I can't wait for the new album though, only a few more months.

endlesst0m
05-09-2007, 08:02 AM
What's the stradegy behind cutting so many songs from an album? I've never really understood that. I mean, did they really write that many songs that are so incredibly bad, that even just including them on the album takes away from the overall quality? I can imagine cutting a few songs that you realize are terrible and not up to standards, but having only 13 out of 23 possible songs? C'mon, what's the deal?!

Kitten
05-09-2007, 08:05 AM
Maybe they cemo all those songs and only choose or so to record because they could. Or maybe what seemed a cool idea at the time didn't work out to be so good.

Post recording update (http://ultimate-guitar.com/news/upcoming_releases/the_offspring_post_recording_update_talk_about_tou r.html)

So far, there are two confirmed tracks that will likely appear on the new album, "Pass Me By" (outtake from "Splinter") and a re-recording of "Dirty Magic" (from 1992's "Ignition"), which were previously demoed last summer (read story on UG). Holland described the new songs as "lots of guitar, energy, lots of energy, and good songs." and he thinks "it's the best stuff we've done in a long time."

I think most people here has known about that for months now.

But you guys suck cause whole our team was built on elitserie players, exept one or two players from NHL. Kidding Slovakia is a really hard team to beat but really you guys should have won that game. We are World Champion masters and we will keep that title.

No, they will not. I don't want the EP consisting of demos. I want them to finish 6 off 10 demos and that's it. Just something for the most hardcore fans. :)

Hey, it's cheating to put them on the next records (after the new album) and it's too much stuff for the "Rarities and B-sides" album. ;)

It's been quality news that we've had recently, and we all appreciate the effort Dexter has put into keeping us posted and signing in to look at the forums. Having heard the developments with the album, it seems more promising than first imagined! There seems to be a real air of positivity around it. Personally, I'm glad they've taken as long as they have; as I'm sure it'll prove to be a much more creative and exceptionally produced record.

Given all the talk about 'Pass Me By' and the re-recorded 'Dirty Magic' I think it'll be better that they aren't included, as it gives us a taste of fresh material.

For now however, to really get the fans salivating over the prospect of the new record would be some potential track names or even draft album names.

Roll on recording the vocals...

I also am glad its been taking awhile to get this record done. I mean, i just leads us up to thinking how awesome this new album can be. I'm sure this album will get much publicity, and bring the offspring back into the good days with smash and americana.

I Just want to know the release date...and also the Album's Cover, no ones really talked about it at all yet

There hasn't been any info on what the cover'll look like. It has been blurted out that it's coming in September.

i nailed you all, that was well deserved for the "mark is the new moderator" prank. it still baffles me that dexter got involved, but whatever. I got you.

EndlessT0m, what's the point of freaking out about Mark's claim to be updating the myspace? It's either going to turn out to be true, or it's going to turn out to be a huge lie like the others. Besides, if I say anything else, he's going to post about how he supposedly saw me on the subway yesterday.


No, it's a BS!! and it says that those 23 demos sound like Ixnay. They are all burned to separate CD and are hanging on the wall as well.


Yeah, either Mark is updating it or not. I don't see the big deal either; let's not get all crazy and start some drama again. Though I must admit, the "can you guess who?" attention grabbing thing made me lol.

Right... you sure fooled us?

How the fuck did you nail me when my first reaction was "it doesn't matter whether Mark is doing it or not" and I actually defended you?!

Well deserved?

Nailed you all?

A little full of yourself, aren't you?

you make a good assessment. sounds like it should be really good.
dirty magic i think will appear, perhaps both of them as a bside. pass me by i think is the least likely to be released, it was rejected for a reason. theyll have newer outtakes more likely to be released as bsides. dirty magic will probably come out because we've kept the demand so high for it.


please please dont encourage the bbs members to 'draft' album names. they come up with their own, thats just not up for speculation.

The whole point of a prank is to get a rise out of someone and make their true colors come out. That happened with the April Fool's prank. Your "prank" was met with a yawn, and then pwnage from Dexter. If you go back and read, you didn't "get" many people at all. Probably about as many as you did when you claimed you'd heard the new demos, and they sound like Ixnay. Didn't EndlessT0m have to ask why no one was freaking out about what you said? Dude, take note that Dexter got involved. Shape up.

yeh, cos it sounded too heavy for splinter. not cos it was crap.
but i agree that dirty magic will probably be released somewhere, cos he's already recorded that almost 2 years ago.
