The Offspring’s Dexter Holland and Noodles: “Everything from Smash ’til now seems like it’s all part of the same era”

In the nine years since they dropped the icy and introspective Days Go By, The Offspring haven’t been entirely quiet – they’ve been a festival mainstay everywhere from Austria to Australia, and the latter years of the 2010s were their most prolific on the touring circuit since the ‘90s – but on the recorded front, fans have been malnourished for much too long. But just when the world needed lively, pit-splitting skate-punk scorchers more desperately than ever, the millennial playlist mainstays pulled through.

Over the course of nearly three decades, the pop-punk pioneers and road warriors not only finished out a seven-album major label contract but kept making music far beyond it, retaining a radio presence along with their senses of sanity and humor.

The Offspring’s Dexter Holland on Cali Punk Pride and Why We’ve Seen the Worst of Covid

“Oh, baby, let the bad times roll,” the Offspring sing on the title track to their new album, resigning themselves to a world in peril. It’s the stalwart California punk band’s first studio LP in nearly a decade, and their first for Concord after a lengthy run on Capitol, but the label change and the departure of their longtime bassist haven’t blunted the Offspring’s edge. Working with producer Bob Rock (Metallica), they set doom-and-gloom lyrics (as heard on the shrug-emoji title track and the prescient “This Is Not Utopia”) to euphoric melodies for a head-spinning listen that’s on par with their Nineties gems Smash and Ixnay on the Hombre.
