    The Offspring hope to have a new album out this year:


    We’re hoping to get it out this year, yeah! We’ve been working on it. It’s going real slow. [laughs] We’ve been in and out of the studio for a few years now. We want to get some songs out before we did the whole record. Like, “Coming for You,” whenever that was released.

    Not to be negative, cause this band has made plenty of great albums...but anything has to be better than Days Go By

    Days Go By was better than Splinter lol

    The two weakest albums by the band but I think Days Go By is even worse. But to each their own my friend

    Both have some decent songs on them but I think overall Days Go By has a few more.

    Although overall I think Spare Me The Details is the best one either haha

    Wait, I thought I read recently they weren't going to release traditional albums anymore? Just singles and EPs? Or am I imagining things?

    Splinter and Days Go By both have the same problem that if they'd done EITHER a constantly tongue-in-cheek jokey album OR a stripped-down serious punk record they'd have been excellent; as it is, they're decent but could be better.

    And besides, Days Go By is worth it for the closer alone.

    Man I really enjoyed Splinter. And it didn't have that California Bumpin song which was just horrifically embarrassing (not that I'm defending really any other joke song of theirs lol)

    That's actually a great point about Splinter. If they got rid of Hit That, Worst Hangover, Spare me the Details and When You're in Prison, and added 3-4 more punk styled songs, I think it would've been an incredible album!

    Yeah. That said, I also have to confess I rather like Spare Me The Details. It's super catchy. Hit That too. No excuse for the other two though.

    But same deal with Days Go By - cut Cruisin' California, OC Guns and Secret Family, boom.

    I personally like those 2 but it kills the flow of the album. Worst Hangover Ever is a rip off of Why Don't You Get a Job and Prison was completely unnecessary lol. It's funny, if you combine those 4 with those 3 songs you listed from Days and another 3 funny pop-ish songs, you have a great album of silly songs! I know they love sprinkling those songs in but a full album of that could be interesting.
