While Noodles announced in February 2019 that The Offspring had finished recording their new album, the band have officially confirmed that it'll finally be released this year.

In a short teaser video with the guitarist and frontman Dexter Holland, the California punk rock veterans reveal: "We’re putting out a record. It’s finished, it’s done, it’s in the can as they say. We’ve got songs, we’ve got titles, we’ve got a label, we’ve got an album title, we’ve got a cover, we’ve got artwork and stuff. It’s ready to go. We’re putting this out."

They don't divulge an actual release date just yet ("We're going to talk about all that stuff when the label lets us"), but at least it's a pretty decent start, eh?!

In March 2019, Dexter told Kerrang! of the follow-up to 2012's Days Go By: "It sounds like our old shit! That’s what I’m supposed to say, right?!" he joked. "I don’t really know how to describe it. I guess it’s punk rock, but then we throw in a couple of songs that aren’t what you’d normally predict. We have a lot of really fast stuff on there, plus a couple of things that you might not really expect from us. But I’m really really happy with it. It’s not completely finished, but it is 98 per cent finished. So we’re trying to put together a plan to release it.

"We’re very lucky that we have fans in lots of different places – in Australia, in Japan, in Europe and the UK, of course," the frontman continued. "But what that means is that we have to kind of co-ordinate a schedule so we’re able to service everyone as well. So we really have to get it together so we can spend a little bit of time in each place so we can make the most of the record when it’s released…"
