Rock veterans The Offspring have officially announced the release date for the band’s upcoming new album. “Days Go By” is set for release June 26th on Columbia Records. It was produced by Bob Rock (Metallica). The album’s title track is playing at radio stations nationwide now. When he was asked about the new album, singer/guitarist Dexter Holland said of “Days Go By”, “I don’t know why but I felt sort of serious writing this record and when I finished I felt I needed to have a few playful songs too. Kind of both sides of the Offspring. Either way I think these songs are all going to be a lot of fun to play live.”
The band is already slated to perform at this year’s annual KROQ Weenie Roast Y Fiesta May 5 alongside Coldplay, Incubus, Silversun Pickups and Pennywise. It will also perform its 1993 debut album, “Ignition” from start to finish at Alex’s Bar May 3rd in Long Beach, California. Following this pair of performances, the band will embark on a world tour in support of its new album.
