the offspring just finished there three-gigs-we. the next one will be in eleven days. so what do you think will happen until then?

i think we will have the hammerhead video and perhaps some more information like a journal or some information about there rafrag-tour. i still wonder why we havenīt have the release date of the hammerhead hard copy yet....

I also wonder if any of the songs from the album is gonna be in a movie. Like they did with americana, when "the kids arents alright" was in the faculty. That was so exciting!! lol I'd just heard that the offspring were gonna be in the movie, even though it was just one of their songs it was cool.. but that was after the release of the album.

Anyway, like you, I hope that they'll tell us soon when the single is coming out, although it doesnt matter really as I won't be buying it!! I prefer the album straightaway and we already know when that's coming out... Then again look forward to seeing the video of hammerhead!!

I think this is fake. I'm pretty sure that the cd will have something printed on it, not just "The Offspring - Hammerhead" in some random font. And also I am pretty sure that there will be at least one other track. Not just Hammerhead and some "Hammerhead - Edit".

Because promo's aren't for sale hence the huge PROMOTIONAL NOT FOR SALE on it. They are mostly radio/reviewers things, that's why the radio edit is on it.

The release of promo singles is never announced.

This is probably one of the promo singles sent out to radio stations. And yes, it's technically illegal to sell it, which is probably why the seller describes it as "pr0m0."

They'll probably do a lot more press/interviews, etc. And i'm guessing the Hammerhead video info will be released soon, with the video to be released just prior to the cd.

Of course. I don't think Sony wants money for a promotional cd with the print "not for sale". ;)

I hope I get the whole album as a promo too.

So I ask Sony, if they want to cooperate with me. It works. And I ask for stuff, like promo or something.

Did you guys have problems with the offspring.de domain name btw? My German isn't that great, so it's hard to understand what's on the forum. Ow yeah and I think you once said something about an interview with Dexter or so when they were in Berlin doing promo work and that you would upload that too ;). So many questions....

Lol. Shame we never thought about it when we ran theoffspring.info, we could have gotten so much free stuff :(. Or they could have closed us down for copyright infringement.

Should start mailing Xray touring during the summer for European tourdates ;)

Yeah, it's definitely from Half-Truism. Seeing these lyrics in text for the first time made me think about the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan. "One is for envy, One is for spite..." I don't know where that came from, just popped in my head when I saw it.

Yeah....the domain theoffspring.de makes some trouble. I'll fix them, but it isn't easy, so I prefer www.fadedmemories.de.

Interview, right. Until now, I don't get the original recording of the interview, just a snippet of 2 and a half minute (Dexter was ask why rafrag got a delay of one year and what is about the contract with Sony). But I will wait until I got the whole interview. Most of the questions of this interview where ask by the members of the german forum.:cool:

i think he means the thread "domain name" were you searched for a new domain name...

Okay, yeah. We got problems to find a domain name except www.fadedmemories.de.
At the moment, we got:
www.fadedmemories.de
www.theoffspring.de
www.selfesteem.de
www.offspring-music.de

Awesome thanks! Fan questions/interviews are usually way better than your standard interview ;). Just noticed sony has put the offspring.de page online too.
