"Recording Takes a Long Time

Working hard, it‘s just taking awhile to get everything right. Every new part you record, you‘re trying out different stuff to get just the right guitar, microphone, amp, whatever…I can tell you though, the couple songs we just finished sound like a friggin‘ freight train…trying to get finished recording in the next month or so…we‘ll keep you posted.

What do you think of this line?

Though I try to break free
The cycle breaks me
Am I ever gonna see the light?

That is just teasing you I know"

Those lyrics sound kind of Americana-ish. But hopefully they will indeed be finished recording next month, I need some fresh Offspring before school starts again!

Hey Dexter, taking time is fine we're just excited to hear the quality we'd expect anyway.

I like the new line, very offspring-y, good topic!

By the way, I just got back from Maui, on a trip I won with my company, I talked to some of the locals about Da Hui and thought of your vocal recording exploits there, take it easy!

Hit us back with a reply if you get the chance, thanks!

I seriously was SOOO happy to see Dexter did another journal entry! I like the tiny bit of lyrics..sounds very offspring. Nothing too diffrent for them, but w/e what they do is great. I'm stoked about the new albulm(like everyone else) I do hope it will be soon, and i cant wait for them to go on tour!
Thanks Dexter!

From what I've seen, cd's are usually released about 3 months after recording is finished...so if they finish recording in July, like Dexter hopes to, the new album should be out around Octoberish. Right?

Those lyrics remind me of a song something like Lightning Rod. Don't ask why, they just do. I always enjoy new journals. I like updates!

Jojan
06-12-2007, 01:19 PM
And since he wrote "Recording Takes a Long Time" I'd guess that it's a title of a song. Or maybe it's just some kind of title of the journal.

Its getting closer and closer to album time... its hard to believe. Remember when we felt the same way for splinter? Yeah, good times. :]

i don´t love right now that tiny part of the lyric...but i want to see it first with melody ...dexter has the special power to make almost everything so damn right!...let´s wait... IMO Dexter is better songwritter than writting lyrics

Always great to read a new journal. The line sound good. Like someone before me said that kinda sounds like Americana stuff....it does.
Can't wait to get the new album when it comes out!

This is great news, i've been dieing for an update. The lyrics sound alot like the offspring, but i'm not sure you can compare it to a style of any other album, since its with no music that we've heard. We got alot this update, i can only image what we will see next.

And since he wrote "Recording Takes a Long Time" I'd guess that it's a title of a song. Or maybe it's just some kind of title of the journal.

Or maybe it's his way of telling alot of the GOD fans to stfu asking for updates like every 5 minutes.

Anyway, it's really awesome that he updates so much, most band websites I assume the band members don't even realize exist. Cool line too, but not really anything to judge off, and I agree that it sounds kind of Americana-esque.

"Though I try to break free

everything but 'am i ever gonna see the light?'

how about: am i ever gonna face my plight

...or something along those lines, just because it seems like something your dealing with (though i try to break free, the cycle breaks me) rather than something your discovering or realizing...it seems like you have already discovered the problem, youre just having a problem dealing with it or solving it or beating it.

as he's been hinting before and again now, it sounds like its gonna be a powerful, energetic album.

I don't really know if I trust shit like that to be accurate, about how an upcoming album is going to sound. I remember Splinter was supposed to sound more like Ignition and thier older stuff. That was fucking a million miles away from being true.

you guys don't let us down plz. you guys are awesome
and i love the offspring a million times more than any other
band because of their originality. well, i'll wait patiently for
this album to be done.... i like the lines so far. very offspring
stylee. can't wait till that album is out and four the tour.
love you Dexter. muahhhhhh hugs man!

It sounds fucking great to me ! :cool: Especially the two first lines, they sound very good.
Very cool to have some news from The Offspring !
Thanks a lot for the update Dexter, you're a nice guy.
Take your time for the album (but don't take too much time because you'll must name the album "chinese democracy" if it takes too long)


"When will we finish recording the album, I have a feeling it'll be a long time"

Lol :D

Definitely, something like from the last 3 albums. Either something clever like 'Special delivery', 'Original prankster' or something dark like 'Lightning rod'...god and dexter knows...we will hear...

As for the release date, I have no idea anymore, I would rather be prepared for November. :D Doesn't matter, either it leaks or we will have the new single long before the release date...maybe...

yeah, we want pixxxxxx! Gel up your spiky hair and make some photowhoring...

I hope that Takes a long time is just a journal title. We already have Takes me nowhere...

I guess the album is already finished but the guys are too damn lazy and want to keep their asses at the beach surfing for a little bit more.

:rolleyes:

06-13-2007, 12:00 PM
Recording Takes a Long Time is maybe a joke-song, a skit like disclaimer and time to relax and all that. i think a skit like Recording Takes a Long Time would be really awsome :D

Iamstupid
06-13-2007, 12:25 PM
lol Recording Takes A Long Time is more journal's title than a song's title :rolleyes:

"I try to break free"
(sounds a bit like a Queen-revival to me...)
Personaly, I find the lyrics from the journal kinda lame, a bit like 'Long Way Home' or 'Race Against Myself'. Not really bad, but not to the point either.

RODNEYMULLEN
06-13-2007, 12:30 PM

they sound more spinterish, kindof remind me of long way home

you know what would suck?, if all this stuff about it going to be awsome is just the same situation as with pass me by etc, that it will be like hit that or somthin, because theres going to be no pass me by on this album, mabey hes joking (i hope to god hes not)

Haha.

Anyway, the new updates are good, looking forward to the new album. However, those lyrics, combined with the song title "Takes Me Nowhere" gives me a "Race Againt Myself" impression.

This is not a joke!

I dreamt about buying the album last night, but it sucked!
It was last the early the earliest Sum 41 album with some 2 or 3 good song and lots of joke guitar filler stuff.

Hopefully I'm wrong.

i had a dream where i went in a record store and there were promos of the new record not even in cases, but it rocked once i listened to it, maybey since your dream was bad and mine good the record will be = , but hopefully not, hopefully it kicks

That is my worst fear, Wouldn't it suck if the whole album sucked. But i guess that is not possible, so i don't have to worry about that. And also the first sum 41 album kicked ass.

I dreamed that I got to meet Dex in person, and I got to see the Offspring in concert. The only song I remember from that was Beheaded '99. Then, I got to watch as they were working on another DVD.

I hope the DVD part comes true. ;);)

Well I had this dream that i met them all and got to go on stage and sing a part of staring at the sun.. oh wait that wasn't a dream lol. But anyway my local radio station keeps talking about the offspring and they said that the album was going to come out late summer early spring. I'm hopeing thats true.
