Don't know if this has been posted yet, but I read on the italian Vanity Fair (not that I read the magazine, but a friend showed me the interview) some questions to Dexter. The title is "Punk goes to university" because Dexter said that he enrolled to finish his molecular biology degree, saying that Greg from Bad Religion is a paleontologist and biologist too.
Oh, he also said The Offspring like Green Day but the two cannot be compared.
Short interview, it was cool reading about them in such a popular magazine though.
also im not sure why they have that intro i thought dexter was on a wrestling podcast lol

Good interview here:
Best parts translated here:
The drive and enthousiasm of the singer indeed suggests that for The Offspring of 2012 it's all about fun. "I know for example," Holland laughs, "that punkfans are very annoyed by a song like Cruising California. But those songs are a part of who we are. When we started the new album, it appeared that I wrote many serious lyrics. I do not consider myself above others who just want to have fun. It is also good for the balance. We've always been like that, deal with it. If people don't feel like that song, they should just skip the song", he says."
The singer is genuinely surprised by the enthusiastic crowd and surprised about the 16 year olds standing at the front at an Offspring concert. "That gives me the feeling that we still mean something. I want them to be a part of the show, not that they only stand there watching. I want to see stagedivers!"
"I think that nowadays there are too many concerts where the audience are only spectating" concludes Holland." a concert of your favorite band should be an experience and it's the best when you're part of the whole thing."
Large venues such as the Ziggo Dome doesn't do much for the punkrocker. "I don't like playing in venues where the distance between the band and crowd is huge. Fortunately we don't have to proof ourselves anymore and we can do what we want. This is the best part of our career."
