So if the rest of the album process is of average length, how long will it be before it's out? Or before the first single (that hope isn't You Will Find a Way) is out?

If my memory serves me correct: for RAFRAG Dexter announced that the album was finished in early April and then, Hammerhead was released as a single in mid May.

I don't live in a city, so there is no Bestbuy or Futureshop, but I do have a Walmart. Unfortunately any local music stores would quickly go out of business here. There isn't quite a big enough market.

I live in northwest Arkansas, so I technically am supporting a local store when I shop at Walmart. However, I'll most likely end up buying it at a nearby Hastings. Hastings carries the best music selection by far around here, and they have a pretty decent brand-new vinyl section.

I think some older interview with Greg K that it will be the most diverse album or was it RFRG interview? :D Then, 2 drummers. A song OC Guns with Tiki Tiki lyrics. The Future Is Now line. Vibraslap instrument. Mexican people with a trumpet in a studio. A song that would be great for a hero movie. DUI/Jennifer lost a war-like guitar/solo. Ronnie King again.

Y'know, it sounds like it's gonna be a pretty cool album.

Also, Anti War, Anti Police, Anti Religion, Death, My Girlfriend is a Bitch themes.

I don't know how do you guys get Americana considering it's straying into many directions, but alright. :D

I made one possible connection. My girlfriend is a bitch reminds me of Spare Me the Details and that's on Splinter. Ronnie King did Hit That, so maybe he is on that one and with a huge caboose. (Splinter)

I was wondering if OC Guns could be anti-police. Hmmm? Considering they do universal songs, it could also be about Orange County. (Ignition's LAPD) (Tiki Tiki CO1?)

Death song could use Mexican trumpets. (Ixnay's celebration of death :d) That wouldn't really be Gone Away or The End of the Line. I'm not sure if they can use Vibraslap here.

I'm not sure if you could connect anti-war with a hero-like song and also DUI/JLTW solo. (anti-war, Tehran, maybe CO1 song, Smash influence) All of the above except anti-war could also be supported by Americana. I'm not getting Smash at all which is strange. Maybe, anti-religion song will be Smash influenced like Something To Believe In. I don't know where do you connect The Future Is Now, I'm getting some Splinter's Lightning Rod. It's All Good could be Americana influence. Or maybe, It's All Good could be anti-religion Smash influenced song with the future is now line? :d Or, hero-like song called The Future Is Now.

i dont believe in physcics because ive never read the headline "physcic wins lottery"

I'm not bashing the band at all or really complaining, because whenever the album comes, I'll be happy, and I'm not a huge die-hard Offspring fan anymore... but these guys are just so damn lazy about making albums :p I mean, I know they do some other stuff on the side, but they've released exactly two albums in the last decade, while in the decade before that, they released five! The only other band I can think of that I'm a big fan of who releases albums that slowly is Tool, and all those guys are in like 5 other bands, touring and making albums all the time. I just don't really feel that the Offspring's hearts are in it anymore. They really haven't made any effort in the last decade to stay relevant, and in my opinion, they just don't seem that excited about it anymore. I kinda wonder if it was a result of Ron leaving, because that's right about the time when they stopped seeming super invested. Splinter took longer to make than any of their previous albums, and it just got longer and longer from there.

To be honest, I kind of hope the band calls it quits after this album. I think they're better off spending time with their families, Dexter with his business, etc... and we'll have 9 albums of material to remember them for. That's quite a career! Not all that many mainstream bands stick around for 9 studio albums. But I really do kinda hope this is the last one.

I'd like some kind of "confirmation" or so :p

Don't know maybe one could say releasing another album is not that "important" regarding the money ascpet anymore because there's no need regarding this so why not take all the time in the world to make this a "good" one i.e. something they are happy with?

And as long as people keep asking they are interested in it and excited about it ... would be kind of sad if no one would ask or try to "push" it ;) (though that asking and pushing might be a little nerve-racking at times and is probably leading nowhere).

I wouldn't actually agree with that, but I would definitely agree with the part where you said they're not putting much effort into staying relevant. So it's kind of a weird place they're in. They are clearly still motivated to tour, and are communicating with the fans more than they ever have (at least The Niz is). Yet, they are very lax about making records. I can't say I blame them, with things the way they are.

I think Noodles is a super friendly, social guy, and they're having more fun with the fans than with actually making music. Like their new iphone app that teaches people guitar and stuff. I feel like Dex and Noodles have futures in other realms which we'd still love. Dex has his business stuff and if that hot sauce is as great as everyone claims, there could be something there. Noodles is an entertainer and they both have really cool ideas that fans love. I just feel like both of them are heading in new, different directions and away from making records. I dunno.

I don't know about The Office. I've just watched the first episode without Michael, and Deangelo as the new boss. I thought it was funny still, but who knows. Replacing main characters can kill a show, but doesn't have to. Just look at Spin City. Scrubs got killed, I would've like to see it continue though, but with Zach Braff and black doctor from Clueless, all the original ones actually.

Hopefully this derails the thread.

I would say the band is invested in a different way. I don't think they really care about being considered as relevant or not anymore. If they were, promotions would've been a lot bigger for RAFRAG, their shows would be actual shows instead of concerts. I really do get the feeling like the band is having a great time while on tour, and that they love making music. But at their own pace.

I started to get bored with The Office shortly after Jim and Pam got married, but then Michael left, and James Spader has done a nice job of filling in, but he's leaving at the end of this season, too... there's really no arching story anymore, and most of the characters have grown stale. At this point, I just kinda want them to bring the show to an end and see where the actors show up elsewhere. There's talk of a Dwight spin-off, which could be excellent.

Let's just say, we'll see how this album turns out. If it's a lot like "You Will Find A Way" or whatever it's called. I might really be ready for them to wrap it up. You make a fair point about maybe they do like making music, but at their own pace... I'll just wait and see how it sounds. They just don't seem as inspired or as excited as they once were. RFRG turned out quite good, though, so I could be surprised.

The music changes year by year. Punk-rock has died since mid 90's, that's why the Offspring changed their style from "S/T" & "Ignition" to "Conspiracy of one" & "Rise & fall,rage & grace".Music goes on different ways and is modernized so they can't stay back(in the past). There will never be "Ignition" again and everybody knows that. I disagree with llamas that they have lost their interest in music; because it's their job! They release albums slowly because of the concerts! Every band or singer knows that the real money is because of concerts. Internet-downloading decreases the albums' sales and they know that,too. I agree with llamas that they should make albums more often because "releasing albums" creates the band's history.
To come to an end, I would say that the Offspring won't resign until they have released at least 15 albums;).

Well, they peaked in 90's and you could say that CO1 is not 90's. So 4:3, but on the other hand 6 albums in around 12 years and then 3 in 12 years. It was like 1:2 and now 1:4.

I don't think they could have been successful with 90's kind of albums and I guess it's difficult to come up with cool riffs. The music industry has changed. Also, you gotta live your life to come up with fresh and quality songs.

I don't think they are bored, although they gotta pay their airplanes. :D Just kidding or not? :d

I'm kind of resigned with 10 albums, so hopefully they can do one more and then we will see, maybe they'll become 60 year old country rockers singing When You're in Prison style. :D You never know, you don't know what music industry will look like. :d People can live 100 years...so...

PS: Ron, well I don't want to get into it too much, but they should get him into studio to do at least one track. Just an idea.
Nowadays "serious" and epic rock songs (Muse/Radiohead/Foo fighters) is what's big in Europe's rock scene. They don't like south california punk rock. I think they've never liked it. But I still think that if a good novelty song, with a catchy chorus, appears on this new album and if it gets a good share a promotion, it can become big in the summer. But it has to be ready for the summer. (in Europe that's very important, maybe not in the US, but here it is).
Another option is to be the rock song the newest Spiderman movie( columbia pictures!!!!). Muse's song on Twilight made them BIG in the USA; Nickelback's singer song on SpiderMan made them finally BIG in Europe (even if just for 2 or 3 years).



If Green Day didn't created a rock opera they would be just like The Offspring, in terms of popularity/Fame (maybe even less).

I'm a bit perplexed why a band's supposed "relevancy" to mainstream popculture should have any impact whatsoever on one's enjoyment of the band itself. A lot of the bands I listen to probably only have a few thousand fans in the entire globe (as in like maybe 5-10k).

The only thing that matters is whether or not you continue to enjoy their musical output. The Offspring are still putting out albums that I like, and so I hope they continue.

A) THe Offspring aren't really popular nowadays anywhere in the world. Except maybe Japan and BrasiL/Argentina. But even in Brasil, they´ve failed during their last indoor tour to sold out their shows.
B) We are, mostly, HARDCORE FANS. We're not the pattern in Europe, believe me. I never listened in the past decade to any Offspring/Bad Religion/Weezer/Pennywise/Social D/Sublime/Smash Mouth (Punk-rock or SoCal Bands) in any portuguese radio. I can assume that in France, Spain, Germany or ITaly they may get more radio airplay but never enough to sustain them as household names in the european music scene. Since Download 08 they've never headlined any MAJOR festival. Of course, people knows them, they're still a famous band. They're just not one of the biggest bands in the world anymore, and that+s not a problem, because they don't want to be.

That's my view.

I'm sorry Tijs, but I'm almost with llamas on this, not quite, but almost. As the years go by, their records seem to appeal to a more mainstream taste (which is alright for me, but I don't like the sound).

It would be nice for them to stop putting out records before they end up like the Rolling Stones nowadays. I still want ten albums though. I don't want this to be their last one.

If they just happened to go back to their Ignition sound (which we all know will not happen), I would want them to continue to rock into their 70s.


This isn't on topic, but did we ever figure out which song they re-recorded? Or did we all assume that it was Dirty Magic? I am still hopeful that it will be Kick Him When He's Down, Forever And A Day, or Session. :)

The Offspring are still putting out albums that I like, and so I hope they continue.

But see, that's the thing. I really think the offspring should call it quits if most of the new album is going to have that "days go by" vibe. I mean, its a good song, but it's not an offspring sound.


That and the fact they are apparently not that interested in making albums anymore. So yeah, llamas is not the only one with that unpopular opinion

I saw them live in Greece in 2008 and they were so excited! They haven't lost their passion in music.That's my opinion. I 'll be waiting for the day to release their 15th album. After that I would imagine their end to come!

It's legit to have any opinion, but come on..why still hang out here if you want them to quit? They slowered down the process of making an album but it's the finished product that matters. I think they are still interested in making music at their own pace, if they wanted to be like green day they know how to, you can trust this. They had a worldwide success and everyone bashed them for 2 songs, because americana is a fucking good punk rock album! Now they just do what they want, the music they like. Days go by is kind of different but again.. whoever plays music knows it's boring doing the same thing over and over, we already know that there is going to be fast tracks too. Don't get me wrong, I'd like them to put out a record more quickly it's obvious but I really can't blame them for not doing it. I will judje only when the album will come out...rafrag surprised me in a good way, I hope they'll do it again!

Now to reply.

- They took forever making Splinter and RFRG, and everyone said, "Maybe they're taking their time to perfect it and make it their best album ever!!!" Did that happen? I highly doubt it'll happen this time, either - especially when you listen to the first song they've played.

- If they DID put out their best album ever and then quit, I'd be stoked that they went out on such a HIGH NOTE!

I badly want this album by now, we are all going crazy as the days go by, I can see it when you guys fight about if they should quit or not. I guess we all just need to hear another Hammerhead, a Have you ever, or maybe a Gone away and they will shut your mouths once again.

After the new 9th album release the Offspring should start recording the 10th. So we will have it in our hands by the end of 2015.They need 3 years at least to prepare for it. It's obvious that they record a new album every 4-5 years.

03-19-2012, 05:32 AM
now, talking seriously. One thing that changes when you are a professional like them is that you don't go and practice and start new songs, when it gets the time they say, well let's do new songs and this is for almost every famous band. It would be cool if they tried something like, let's write an album in 5 months for example, what comes comes. just to see what it comes out, maybe not even an album but an Ep...some old school stuff. it could be cool... or could be a disaster...but I'd appreciate something like this. ok now I return to the real world and wait for the new album :)

People want to hear it in old school way. So, I'm probably wrong, they are not gonna imitate anything this time, they will be nostalgic like in Days Go By to compensate that feeling instead of cheap imitation. Days go by, it's time to grow up. :D

I think it's a good argument that they tell us wrong dates, but it's months, not years, so it's ok and we know that they love to tease the shit out of us...

Maybe we should have a thread getting ready for the album, I wonder if it'll happen with influences thing again. It seems like it can easily derail things around. I'm curious how it's going to be accepted. How do you prepare for the shit?

Ok now I'm starting to believe that I can't write in English... I NEVER said i wanted a smash#2, but if I had to choose I'd go for ixnay cause I like it more. as for that, I don't want any album number2. I said I'd like to see what would come out with a different writing process, that's it. I'm one of those who doesn't want an album to be like the previous one.

and btw what's nostalgic about days go by? can't repeat may be called nostalgic...but I just call it "a song".
there's nothing to be prepared to, we all have just to wait and listen what comes.

After an exhaustive marketing study we've discovered that our fans only want Offspring records with one-word titles. Our first record was self-titled. The "The" doesn't count as a word so it was really just Offspring, which is one word. Then came Ignition. Next was Smash. By now our fans knew what to expect from us, but we got cocky and titled our next record Ixnay On The Hombre. What does that even mean? We hadn't quite realized that what we had just done was to break a sacred trust that we shared with our fans. We got back on track with Americana, but once again we let our success get to our heads, following up with the outrageous betrayal entitled Conspiracy of One. Once again our fans rebelled at this disgrace. I want to assure our fans that we have been duly humbled, and we are back amongst the righteous, where we belong, back to our one-word roots. Thus we give you Splinter, one simple, humble word.

He should come back to journals btw. Enough of one liners, no matter how brilliant they're.

Does anyone have a link/source for this? I never knew that the subject of titles was brought up, but I've always been curious about whether there was a method to how they name their albums.

I'm pretty sure he mentioned it during an interview with Chart magazine ; though i'm having trouble finding the link to the article.

Y'know, if I were in the band, I might feel like I should avoid saying anything at all about the new album because no matter what, there's a ton of negativity.

I agree. I don't like seeing all the hate. I trust these guys. They know what they are doing. I will say that I'm getting impatient though as well.

You guys do realize that it's not a big deal to be off by a month or so, right? This has a long way to go before it gets to Chinese Democracy level.

It would be cool if they put up some more clips of them in the studio or something to tide people over, but why would you want them to make something at a quicker pace than they're comfortable with if you want it to be good? Bob Rock's known to be a producer that takes a little longer than most, anyway.

They need to get back with Dave Jerden. I've read how there's lots of Americana feel to it and I don't see it one bit. Hopefully, I'm wrong

They pulled Americana off in 1 year, although they probably had ideas from the past so it wasn't that difficult. But, the point is that it was in 90's. Shit has changed. Look at Splinter, it took a lot of time, but I think it should've taken longer because I can see some things that are not perfect. Still, a very good record. I don't think they can make a serious mainstream record in a year and I can't imagine that they would go into underground.

Those slow, beautiful and sad parts are very nostalgic to me, but I might be wrong. However, the title is about time, so you can interpret it like that.

Just wait when the bbs gets attacked. :D Just wait...


According to Internet and Google Searcher that´s true the new Offspring album called: "Apocalyptic prophecy is leaving footprints on the earth"? I´m thinking is fake they are not finished yet.

Please confirm. Thanks

False; Hipster = "you've heard of it" and "good" never coincide.

Maybe not anymore, but it's not strange to think of them talking about mainstream artist. They're massive, even now, that we're not in 1999 anymore.

But it's ok, it may be a great album, I'm looking forward to it.

I don't think of them as mainstream. At least around here. When I hear mainstream, I think of LMFAO, Coldplay, Adele, Lady Gaga, Beiber, etc...

I guess they are fairly mainstream now if you think about it, just not that popular. I'm with BagOfShenanigans on this one

"Mainstream" or not, it's stupid to use that as a pejorative term, and equally as dumb use it as a reason to like or dislike something.

KickHimWhenHe'sDown
03-22-2012, 06:49 PM
I guess it doesn't really matter. It's just that about 99% of music that I'd consider "mainstream" is music that I'd never listen to.

Yes, they're an elite kind of band..... under indipendent label, all DIY style and sell just some hundred copies with shows in small clubs.

My Radio Station still plays 2 offpsring songs a day at least, and the moment they release that album a few songs will become current mainstream (you gotta go far kid and hammerhead at the time of the last record were the most requested and played on my station)
