No, I canīt. I had to work. I think that peopleīs fans who lived in Japan takes the camera and make a record. Or a live stream broadcast web same as Lowlands Festival last year. :)

He was obviously drunk off his ass.

Slightly off-topic: It is fun when you hear Japanese words that sounds a lot like English words. Beer, table, ice-cream, door, sausage, sandwich, etc.

Nope, we heard Hammerhead something like two or three days after they played it at Summersonic that year.

My fear this time is that we no longer have any regular posters who are Japanese! I hope someone is thinking about us, though.

EDIT: Looks like it was two days.

I got a bad feeling about what people are going to say this sounds like...but I like it so far! Of course, I can't say that much because it's low quality and it cuts off before it gets really awesome (I can just feel it), but very promising. I LOVE the lyrics.

Degstur Lolland
03-31-2012, 10:34 AM
Yeah, I'm loving it, it looks like a great song.

If you let me analyse it, I'm getting some Can't Repeat, high pitched guitar reminds me of their old video from 1984 or whatever or maybe a bit of AFI.

But it's a fresh song, not destroyed by anything, so it's good.

Flashback 1984, that's when I was born. :D

I guess we could nail the lyrics...

GamerKT

Angelo
03-31-2012, 10:35 AM
Yup, the first - and last - thing I thought of when Dexter started singing was "Savior" by Rise Against.

I have no doubts that the studio version will sound great - I'm just hoping that "Savior" thing doesn't linger...

edit: Nizzy sure can be a sloppy lead player!

omg..what a great song...I gotta say that I expected something totally different...to be honest,something worse..but only a one minute long video has sufficed me to know that it's gonna be a fucking great song...I love it and hope to get a full song very soon...

So we are getting the first influence. :D Rise Against. I don't know, I don't listen to them. But, let's not blow it out of proportions.

Rise Against is my favorite band. Not sure the influence, if any, is as strong as you guys think.

(I secretly hope it is because an album that sounds like my two favorite bands would make me jizz.)

Sounds totally like Rise Against.
Don't know why, but since RafRag, every new song of Offspring sounds like songs of other famous bands like Green Day, My Chemical Romance and stuff. And now: Rise Against.

But okay, it's just a one minute of a song, recorded with a pinapple. So, let's wait for a real pro shot or the whole album.

This song is pretty awesome. Catchy as hell melodic punk; wonder if it'll be the first single?

Can't say i'm a huge fan of Rise Against's last couple albums; but i re-listened to Savior due to the mentions in this thread, don't really hear the comparison all that much.


I like the Dead Kennedys California Uber Alles reference

''flashback 1984 now who's that knocking at your door''

Yes! That was one of the things that immediately got my attention during my first listen; love the reference. Can't wait to be able to know the rest of the lyrics to the song.

It sounds nothing alike in my opinion i think people are just looking for something to compare the new song to and im pretty sure if you showed it to Rise Against they would agree that it doesn't sound like Savior


love the reference. Can't wait to be able to know the rest of the lyrics to the song.

same here:)

Wow, I sure too do get a Rise Against flashback, but that's not necessary a bad thing. :D As long as the songs are great!

It sounds promising, but the video truely being recorded with a pineapple (copyright Beheaded), and Noodles' playing being not too exact, I'm really looking forward to the studio version.

mrXniick
03-31-2012, 02:45 PM
I think it sounds awesome... really excited.

I do hear some bits of rise against in it, but then again it's just the genre of music. I love Rise Against... so I'm fine with it :)

Mucho Macho
03-31-2012, 02:55 PM
OK, this is kinda crazy. Next week I leave on holiday so I wanted to download some new songs from new bands I didn't know so far for my mp3. To give myself some inspiration, I was checking with whom The Offspring played live concerts the last couple of years, and there was one name I did write down on a sheat of paper that I really liked and didn't know so far (sorry for their fans), and the band's name was: Rise Against... Its's a bit weird looking forward to a new song of my all time favorite band Offspring, and turns out that the new song sounds a bit like that other great band I got to know today...

jacknife737
03-31-2012, 02:55 PM

The clip cuts off at the worst possible time: i'm really getting into it and then it just STOPS.

Rooster
03-31-2012, 02:56 PM
Now that's what I'm talking about!


I must admit, I got a bit of Rise Against feel too, but not about any particular song. But just a bit, nothing too similar, so that's ok. A great tune nevertheless! Can't wait for the album :)


As long as it's not produced in the same way as the newer Rise Against albums it'll be great. I can't even remember if I listen to entire Endgame in one take. It just sounds so... Perfect. Too perfect, to the point of sounding completely soul-less. Like robots would play instead of people. It's so sterile, and I can't listen to it because of that... So, if the new Offspring record doesn't sound like what I just described, then it sounds nothing like Rise Against.

03-31-2012, 03:39 PM
Finally! Its totally awesome! i have listen it again and again, and got goosebumps on my back. I dont think it sounds like Rise Against. Just because of high pitch notes in the middle? Pff
I think its sounds more like "Cant repeat", and the lyrics very much like - something about old days, memories.

Rooster
03-31-2012, 03:48 PM
No, I think the similarity has something to do with the verse part. But if you ask me that similarity doesn't go beyond the rhytm. The chorus? Sounds pretty Offspring-ish to me. So other than the very faint similarity in the verses this sounds nothing like Rise Against.

People just like to blow things out of proportions.

Here we go again. Stop blowing this out of proportions, really. And yes, I have heard Savior, I do own Appeal to Reason and Savior is my favorite song from that record, though that's not saying much.


Sorry, but I'm just sick of all this nitpicking to the point of wanting to smash my head right through my screen. Aside from the rhytm during the verses, where is all this similarity "everyone" speaks of? Wanna hear similarity? Try listening "As Long As We Can" by Pennywise and "The System" by Black Pacific.

What's your problem dude?! If the song reminds me to Rise Against, I can say it. I don't say "Shit, Offspring a fucking rip-offs." And I don't say it is similar to the song "Saviour". I just found, it (the part between the intro and the refrain) sounds like Rise Against. The way her sings and stuff.

So, get a life as well and learn not to offend people for their opinion.

Rafa88offspring
03-31-2012, 04:57 PM
Yeah I won't apologize, I'm as big an Offspring fan as any of you. I still love them to death, but come on, the verses and the chorus are the exact same structure as "Savior" and the vocals are almost identical. I'm not nitpicking, it's blatantly there.

Well, if you haven't noticed, in my first post in this thread I mentioned the faint similarity, too. So in that part we agree. There are small similarities, just nowhere near enough to call the song a ripoff, which you didn't.


My beef is with posts like this:

See? Posts of this kind are pissing me of. Seriously folks, A SONG BEING VAGUELY SIMILAR TO ANOTHER DOESN'T MEAN IT'S A RIPOFF OR THE SAME!!! We've had a lot of cases even worse than this though, and I'm afraid there's more coming...

That one only has a little chord progression similarity. And that has it obvious explanation. Not as much more similarity than Long Way Home and Can't Repeat.

03-31-2012, 04:59 PM
I don't mind it when people say "hey this reminds me of rise against, sounds cool"

What I hate is when people bash songs and say it sucks because it sounds like something else. Happend to the first song, which is now called Days Go By.

My message was intended only to those who come here just to say negative stuff.

Yeah, but I still notice more similarity than Savior and The Future Is Now. It has an obvious explanation, but that riff is still a nearly perfect copy of As Long As We Can

What I hate is when people bash songs and say it sucks because it sounds like something else. Happend to the first song, which is now called Days Go By.

My message was intended only to those who come here just to say negative stuff.

Well, that first version of "Days Go By" was way, waaaaaaay too much like that Foo Fighters song. In a way I'm glad people got upset about it because the second time we heard it, it was much different. I think as long as criticism remains constructive, it's perfectly okay.

Okay, the verses are somewhat similar, but that shit happens in songs. Not really a big deal. Nothing to get all worked up over. Hopefully we hear the whole song soon.

this is an updated more accurate version of lyrics

This city's made of diamond
And tomorrow the glass will grow
All the freedoms that divides us
it's coming after me

Flashback 1984
Now who's now, knock knock, knock'n at your door
fuck? stripes? traps? riot? DD
They are coming after me

Now! Life is not the same
I'm one (maybe i admit?)
Sparks turn into flames

now you take what you can get
wakes? makes? me...dead?
The future is now, now I disappear
Now take...
Save me from the liars
The future is here, this is how I disappear

Money down the spiral
with the lie, a better man?

I love coming here for the whole "we love The Offspring" experience. Love these new songs coming out and everyone enjoying and getting excited and such.

But when people come and start saying negative crap, it really puts the mood down. People start arguing and now when we listen to the new songs we'll be thinking "does this sound like that other band" ? You know what, I dare you to write a song that doesn't sound like something else.

I love Rise Against, and if it's a bit similar, hey that's great.

Haven't they changed just the main riff? The rest of the song stayed pretty much untouched from what I remember. Maybe people getting upset was the reason to change it. In this case I liked the change, but not because it would be less similar, I simply liked the new riff more.

Constructive criticism is ok yes. But do comments like "oh noo, it sounds exactly like that song, why did they do it because it sucks" count as constructive criticism?

Well, if you haven't noticed, in my first post in this thread I mentioned the faint similarity, too. So in that part we agree. There are small similarities, just nowhere near enough to call the song a ripoff, which you didn't.

I'll be honest with you though, the first time I heard that song, I didn't notice any similarity to any other song. All that was going on in my head was "wow this is awesome, great offspring sound".

Only later did I compare it to Times Like These, because of all the comments. And then of course after I listened to it again, it did remind me of FF.

Funny how these things work, because I'm a huge FF fan and I play instruments and such, and to me it was just a great song.

I honestly think that some of you guys (and gals) need to calm down a little bit, whether you hear the similarities to another song(s) or not.

Those that are nitpicking for the sake of finding a reason to have their voice heard aren't really worth addressing anyways.

Those who, like me, found an actual similarity the very first time they heard it are simply mentioning just that - a similarity. I also went on to say that I'm sure the studio version will sound great! I'm convinced of it!

If you don't hear it - no biggie. Anybody that wants to argue with you only to convince you that they sound the same needs to find a couple of other interests.

I don't mean to be preachy - but there is already a sense of animosity that has arisen in this thread. And that's despite the fact that everyone fucking loves the song, even though some find it lacking in originality.

They are. ;) Don't wanna beef with anyone.

And I really like the first version of "Days go by". Nevermind the "Times like these"-theory. It was a great song, maybe a great bonus track. "Rise and fall" sounds like "American idiot", but The Offspring gave a shit and put it on RafRag. So, why did they changed "Days go by"?

Whatever, I'm really looking forward to the release of the new album.

Voice of reason :D

After the past wars we had here that were similar to this one (I'm sure there are more "ripoff" accusations coming in the future) I find comments in which people are pointing out the said similarity (even if it's a faint one) as the most important thing in the song and as the factor that determines whether they enjoy the song or not annoying, and it doesn't take much to trigger me (far less than I would have wanted). But yeah, you're right, those people aren't worth arguing with. I try to avoid that, but I often fail to do so.


I did notice the similarity, but after reading about it from other users, and as I said before I have heard Savior. It just doesn't seem that big of a deal to me. I guess my opinion is similar to yours in this aspect.

edit: Actually I got a big The Kids Aren't Alright vibe from it for some reason...

Dexter doesn't seem to be one to ever hide where he's borrowing parts of a song, even all the way back to the first album where it sounded not unlike TSOL. It doesn't start to bother me when people point it out unless it's either super blatant on the band's part or when the person pointing out how it sounds like something else is totally wrong. The example elsewhere on the forum of Nirvana's "Rape Me" being "sampled" in "Self-Esteem" is one example of it being so wrong it's kind of annoying.

I was in a band where we borrowed liberally from other bands, and it was awesome and fun. Sometimes we did it to be funny, sometimes because we thought it was an awesome song, but we always tried to borrow from enough places that we couldn't be accused of borrowing too much from any one song (except for that one time we basically just rewrote "Kickstart my Heart," but we were all pretty drunk). Most of the time we took a chord progression from somewhere else and played it a lot faster - one song goes through a minute's worth of one song in about a verse and a half.

Basically, it should be expected at some point that borrowing happens, and it should be accepted. I have my own sense of when something borrows too much and crosses a line somewhere, but that may be different from your sense of the situation.

Will you take what's in my head?
...and now i'm dead?
The future is now, now I disappear
Now take...
Save me from the lighter?
This is how I disappear

Money down the spiral
With the lie, a better man?
....promises tomorrow
^This is very close to what I hear.


Thank god it's not another Kristy!
I was very pleased as well. I'm hoping Days Go By is the slowest song on the album.

Ha, I saw it coming, all the discussions starting now ;) but hey, all good.

The new song sounds interesting. One thing I noticed while hearing it is that Noodles / his guitar seems to be a little off tune (could be because of the quality of the snippet though) but it doesn't sound "right" (a little sloppy, too "high" and too loud) doesn't really "fit" ... maybe that's just me?!

I'd really like to hear the whole song in decent quality :)

About the studio sample of "The future is now"

Well... i posted it yesterday here and my post got deleted by the moderators of this forum. I also got warned. I can't ask or post studio leaks here. I respect the forum rules, so it wont happen again.


All i can say is that there is a short clip (around 30 seconds) floating around the "Internets" from a japanese promo about a new song that will be played by the offspring on their "Punkspring2012 Tour". Also there are few live recordings uploaded and the last part from the studio clip matches the beginning of the live recording.

So click around and you will find it. see signature ;) -->

This quote, however, I agree. RFRG could've been so much better with a proper production. Muddy, blurry, messy, call it whatever. It's a mess. I like instruments to be heard crystal clear, and the famous Offspring sound to it as Higgins called. :p Bob Rock still being in charge, I hope he turns the buttons just a bit. I know he can, because he has done great sounds too for some punkrock bands. The songs itself are fucking ace on RFRG.

THISTHISTHISTHIS. Every word of this. Especially the part where I'm gonna kill someone if it's not real.

I'm sure a lot of people won't agree with me, but I love this because it doesn't sound anything like typical Offspring. If someone played that clip for me two days ago, I would have no idea who it was. The sound is awesome and fresh, but the PRODUCTION is what I'm most excited about. It sounds old school, but still as powerful as their other latest stuff. I've been kind of worried because the quality of each of their albums has gotten much "better" but this would be a major step in the right direction.

I'm so paranoid that this is fake, but given Anditko's explanation, I have a little more hope. :)

Also about the sounding of the studio clip. It sounds like the offspring to me.

I remember when i downloaded the new Linkin Park record from the internet i could not belive that its acutally the real deal. I sounded SO much different than the older albums. Unfortunately Linkin park changed their sound and it was bad.

But with the offspring i think we dont have to worry about them changing their sound to the worst. I really like how the new song sounds.

I don't think this is fake because Anditko could start a rockstar career.

It's a sweet piece of work. Really balanced. I'm getting really vicious Smash sound, both live and this sample, but it also has that fairy tale RFRG imagery. It's aslo cute and also like someone on youtube said raven. So, it looks like they figured it out and crammed everything into it while it fuckin works. It's not muddy and also not clean in the wrong way. It's also almost like you can hear Ignition drums.

Pretty sweet they played One Fine Day, they don't play it to much. Would like to see it.

They play it everytime in Japan, dont they? Instead of Self esteem.

It's still really funny that they don't play Self Esteem in Japan... I could swear that nowadays at least over 50% even of the Japanese crowd would like to hear the song, so it would make it worth it.

The land of technology!

It's a shame that they're a shy Youtuber's. Or maybe they have a culture to rock out at the gigs and not to film. That's what I would appreciate. :D Think about how this was in early 90's for example, minimum people probably had any cameras with them.

Everything fun is forbidden, but filming is just impossible to disallow. And I'm not talking about anything hi-res or so. With the technology we have in our pockets it's so easy to send clips to YouTube or to FB while the show is still on!

It makes sense that they didn't play Self Esteem because they have said themselves that Self Esteem isn't very popular in Japan. They probably left it out to play something else.

Either Pete rushed a LOT on that track, or Dexter was tired, cause Pete was almost an entire beat ahead of Dexter for the entire song. Sounded like Noodles was trying to keep up with Pete while not leaving Dexter behind.

Holy crap, really?! Only two songs from RFRG, two from Splinter, three from CO1, one from Smash, and SIX from Americana?? One from Ixnay isn't surprising, but only one from their most recent album and only one from their claim to fame is very, very surprising. And that more than a third of their show was from Americana... is this normal for their shows? Or is this just cause it was Japan?

You and I both, my friend. The general consensus around here is that we'll be waiting until June (like last time, though it's just a guess at this point). What would really be cool is if they release it on June 19th, which is the same day that Lit's new album is released.

Well i says 31 mach because of the time zone difference. When i posted it here in Greece it was April 1st. But i guess i should not reveal anymore details of where i live coz might get dangerous for my file. :confused:

I hope you liked my clip. It took me 2 days of preparation, recording and multitrack mastering. And for those of you who think its computer generated, your wrong. Every instrument is real and played by a real human in realtime.

Here's an update on the lyrics, more importantly the chorus and second verse

This city's made of diamonds
And tomorrow grass will grow
All the freedom that divides us
They're coming after me

Flashback 1984
Now who's, knock knocking on your door
.....starts a riot
They are coming after me

Now! Life is not the same
I'm one
Sparks turn into flames

Will you take what's in my head?
Erase me when i'm dead
The future is now, now I disappear
Now day has turned to night
Save me from the light
The future is now, This is how I disappear

Running down the spiral
With the lie, a better man
Shouting promises tomorrow
Take one last look and see


Now you see me now you don't
.....no last string of hope
?????
They're coming after me

Now, life is just god's game

I finally registered to put in my .02 Long time fan and board lurker

I just spent the last hour analyzing both clips to get the best lyrics possible. I extracted the audio and tried my best to get rid of the static noise, and changed the speed and tempo to try to decipher each word. So a few things:


for "The ____ ____ starts to riot", I want to say it is "The house it starts to riot" but I'm not certain enough and I think I hear an extra word EDIT: Could be "The households start to riot" or something like that... I'm stuck on house.
I seem to hear more words in the chorus than others have mentioned ('Cause, and, etc)
Despite the title of the song, the lyrics in the chorus are "the future is HERE", I think this makes sense because it rhymes with disappear and if you listen closely I think you can tell. EDIT: Only second one says HERE, first is NOW
I tried my best to figure out what is said where I put "No foul play no string a throat / The hero yet to light us" but I think its very close


I'm thinking about trying to spend quality time combining both clips for a longer clip to listen to while also cleaning it up a bit for everyone to enjoy. If interested let me know and I'll see what I can do (but I'm no pro...)

The Future is Now

This city's made of diamonds
And tomorrow glass will grow
All the freedoms that divide us
They're coming after me

Flashback 1984
Now who's knock knocking at your door
The ____ ____ starts to riot
They are coming after me

Now! Life is not the same
I am one
Sparks turn into flames

Will you take what's in my head?
And erase me when I'm dead
‘Cause the future is now, now I'm disappearing
And the day has turned to night
Can you save me from the light
‘Cause the future is here, this is how I disappear

Running down the spiral
With the lie, a better man
Shouting promises tomorrow
Take one last look and see

Now you see me now you don't
No foul play no string a throat
The hero yet to light us
They're coming after me
