The Offspring Has Completed 11th Studio Album

May 9, 2024

The Offspring guitarist Kevin “Noodles” Wasserman and singer Bryan “Dexter” Holland were recently interviewed by Atlanta’s radio station, 99X, and confirmed they’re done recording their 11th studio album!

Noodles said, “It’s done. It’s mastered. All the guys were on the bus and we just listened to the masters of the new record. It’s just done.”

Noodles talked about how the new album was recorded, on and off, over a long period of time, “It’s kind of how we work these days. We don’t go in and just lock ourselves in the studio for six months. We kind of do it piecemeal – a couple of weeks here, a couple of weeks there.”

You may remember that Noodles was interviewed at Colombia’s Radioacktiva and talked about the recording sessions, “It’s not like we go in and work for a whole bunch of months with (longtime producer) Bob (Rock) and then don’t see each other for a couple years. We get together every couple of months and go in the studio and work for a week to two weeks. That’s just how we like to work. And it’s always fun hanging out with Bob. He’s just a great guy. And we just talk about music, talk about ideas, what makes a song great — that sort of thing.”

Bob Rock has produced The Offspring’s last four albums.

Their last, “Let The Bad Times Roll” was a smash (pun intended). Seven Top5 chart debuts, Ten Top10 international debuts and nine Top10 U.S. debuts. Went to #1 on the U.S. Alternative Albums chart and #3 on theU.K. chart.

They’ve sold over 40 million albums and at this point, show no signs of stopping.
