Dexter Holland of The Offspring has updated us once again with their progress of their current album:
Hey, I?ve read a few things out there where it has been suggested that some of the songs on our new record might be older material, like outtakes or re-recordings of old songs.
So I just wanted to let you know that the songs we?ve recorded for our upcoming CD are all completely new. We?re not putting any songs on the new record that were previously recorded. That would be cheating, wouldn?t it?
Dexter Holland, of The Offspring has the following to say about their upcoming album:
Still working on the record over here. Most of the music is recorded and we’re working on vocals now. We counted up the other day, we actually demo’d 23 songs for this CD. Wow! That’s a new record for us. Of those we’ve recorded 13. Will they all be on the album? I don’t know! We’ll see how they turn out. Maybe we’ll cut one, or maybe we’ll write a couple more. Because we’re artists we’re flaky like that.
This will be their 8th studio album and their 1st album featuring new drummer Atom Willard. Bob Rock, whom previously produced Metallica, will be producing the album. They hope to release the album this fall, 2007. The album, and track titles have still yet to be released.
The Offspring is scheduled to appear at the Summer Sonic Festival this August 11th & 12th in Japan. Other bands to appear at the festival include Sum 41, Avenged Sevenfold, Bloc Party, Interpol, and Cyndi Lauper.
