It's officially done! Great new to wake to, at least on the East Coast. When do you think it'll come out now that it's finished?

Ass? I'm just realistic. You really think a month and a half is enough time for them to do all the shit they need to do to get this out to the public? It's not. And the Offspring have shown that they're enjoying taking their time and not rushing things, so it'll be a few months before we get it.

August is possible. July would be likely with a band who really puts all their focus on getting the album out and works diligently solely on that. We know the Offspring, though, and that won't happen ;) August is possible, though. I wouldn't put it past them if they really wanted to get it out.

I know, right?? I was just listening to my new Backstreet Boys album and while I was trying to find some songs on youtube, I saw that the Offspring is still together?! What, they still have nostalgia fans who listen to this crap?? lolololo

I considered the idea that you were joking. :D I really have July at the latest. I really believe in RFRG scenario, but yeah, they might need 3 facken months.

Sooner better for them, if they want another album in 2016. :D

That's realism. :d

But, yeah, they are done, let's all scream yabba dabba dooo!

End of may, early june probably. Albums tend to get a quick release now , since they'll get leaked anyway. Rafrag was finished early april and released mid june too.

I make no predictions. There 'll be a new update for the timeline by Dexter or Noodles on Twitter. I am sure about that.

"Virgilio Torres: im afraid.. hahahah no more songs like Fix You, please!"

Just a suggestion :p





This is great news by the way, I hope the album is out by this summer.

If i remember RAFRAG's timeline correctly: they announced the album was finished like the first week of March: then we got Hammerhad as a single in May, and the album was then released in June. So based on that late June/Early July would seem the most likely.

But, as Jesus correctly points out, labels are starting to release albums a lot quicker now, due to the threat of leaks. So maybe early June even late May isn't entirely out of the question.

Remember when Dexter said after the release of RAFRAG that he wanted to release further albums much quicker? That was 4 years ago.

Shit happens sometimes. Wouldn't you rather the album take longer but end up being better?

No actually RAFRAG was done the second week of April, they really put that record out surprisingly quickly (2 months after completing it):

They only lose a bit of time now because of the Japanese tour dates.

But, that was in the 90's. Shit has changed.

It's not always like this.
That's for a discussion. They could make something great quickly, but probably not for everyone and it wouldn't stand the test of time. And also, it's the whole album, not just one song.

I KNOW it's very difficult to make a consistent album from every angle. Just look at Splinter and RFRG. Splinter is cool as a whole, but RFRG has some of the strongest songs and vice versa.

So, you should be happy that they want to make it better.

Cool info, no reason to be a sceptic now.

They don't lose almost anything. I don't think they are going to master it, personally, and print CDs one by one. :D The work on the artwork started a long time ago. Then, there is a hole after Japan. They could drop Days Go By. And then, another shows start and that's very close I guess. So I'm an optimist for a June. If they don't get unlucky it's going to be like that. Don't know what could happen, they might not like mastering, but I guess they have their professional people.

This are some great news!! this made my day, even if it sounds pathetic ;) I hope its out soon enough. The only nice thing of it being released in July would be to give to myself as I bday present. But I want this stuff out as early as possible. And as always I pray that is sounds like their two first albums. I know that is too much to ask for but hey we fans can dream too

Why yes of course, I just find it funny how they didn't bother to make it as quickly as they perhaps are capable of. But I don't really mind.

Do we have a date for when the band started recording? because in the end I don't know if it took really so long as it may seem. they took their time but it wasn't like it took forever.

03-26-2012, 07:57 AM
I don't want them to rush it, but when it comes to songs that are as simple as the ones The Offspring writes, you HAVE to expect that people will get impatient that it takes eight years to release two albums.

The wait is unfortunate and well...sucks, but if that's how long it takes, then that's how long it takes.

P.S. Where's TheOldMark? I want my insider information as to when the album will be released, lol.

RFRG 2008 and then I remember them having a bunch of songs/demos? at the end of 2009, but they entered a studio next year, telling us about It's All Good song at the beginning of 2010. It's something over 2 years of studio time, 2.5 at best.

They wanted to have it out in 10.10.2010, but that was probably a joke right? :d So it's like twice delayed. Who knows what songs they scrapped along the way. :D They are capable of doing 3 90's-type records in the time span except that it wouldn't work for various reasons.

If you want more info go to wikipedia.

You're also presupposing they worked on the album every day during that period. Don't they have their own studio where they were doing a lot of this work? Bands can take their time when they're not paying a studio by the hour. And by "take their time," I mean Noodles can go surfing some days and Dexter can do whatever Dexter likes to do, and Bob Rock's got a busy schedule of his own.

Thats awesome that its finished. Im excited to hear it. of course everyone wants the new one now or asap; personally i happy they have new music. god only knows when it will be released, but at least in a matter of time the new album will be out :)
If there is a delay it might be cause they are going to tour europe in the springtime.

No I'm not. I just asked if they ever did say something like "this week we're gonna stard recording". Never said, presupposed or pretended that they worked on it every single day.

lal, we know far more than in those articles.

Lex Land is a workable material with plenty of potential. But, she is probably tough, not really a barbie pop star, but she needs to show up somewhere for visibility. Not liking a tattoo and she weighs too much, however she looked very pretty in her match. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tofDq0dSYaM
