The Offspring announce first new album in nine years, Let The Bad Times Roll
The iconic California punk rockers – vocalist Dexter Holland, guitarist Noodles, drummer Pete Parada and new bassist Todd Morse – will be releasing their new LP on April 16 via Concord Records, with the title-track available to check out below alongside a lyric video.
“Folks are saying, ‘If it’s all going to Hell, we might as well make the most out of it, or at least go out swinging,’ ” says Noodles. “Let The Bad Times Roll!”
Explaining where The Offspring’s new single came from (and also how it ties into the full-length as a whole), Dexter says, “I feel like we’re in a unique period in history where instead of our world leaders saying, ‘We’re doing our best,’ it’s more like they’re saying, ‘Fuck it,’ and it’s really scary.”
