The Offspring expect to release a new studio album in 2018 as guitarist Kevin “Noodles” Wasserman spoke about the band’s long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s Days Go By during a recent interview in Brazil. The Offspring issued its ninth album, Days Gone By, five years ago. It spent 2014 on the road promoting the twentieth anniversary of its breakout album, Smash, by performing the disc in its entirety at a number of shows.
