The Offspring Offer Full Stream of New Album ‘Days Go By’
Due in stores on June 26, the Offspring‘s latest album ‘Days Go By’ is now streaming in full at RollingStone.com. It’s the band’s ninth studio effort, and was produced by Bob Rock (Metallica, Motley Crue), who also produced their previous album, 2008‘s ‘Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace.’
It’s the 20th anniversary of the band’s second album ‘Ignition,’ which they played in its entirety at some recent shows. The Offspring also reworked the song ‘Dirty Magic’ from that album for ‘Days Go By.’ Frontman Dexter Holland tells Rolling Stone, “Every time we tried to play ‘Dirty Magic,’ five people would jump up and down and the rest of the audience was scratching their heads. But it was always one of those songs that kept on coming up. We thought it was worth another look.”
In a recent video session, Holland and guitarist Noodles answered several questions about the new album, including if they had a precise idea what they wanted musically when they entered the studio, why they went with producer Bob Rock again, the process for writing lyrics and more.
The band just wrapped up a European tour, and will embark on a North American run beginning July 14 in Quebec. In August, they’ll be part of the Sunset Strip Music Festival, and in September will play Riot Fest in Chicago.
