Lots of new music in the works this week!!
The Offspring has finished their latest album, now they need to figure out how they will release it. Noodles in a recent interview says “we have a record done-it’s in the can. We’re looking for distribution, we’re looking for a record label, amd every time I say something, it gets pushed back, and so I’m not even saying anything. I have no idea.”
The album will be the band’s 10th overall and first since 2012’s Days Go By.

Ghost frontman Tobias Forge has opened up about the band’s future and says there may come a time where he’ll abandon singing and just play guitar. Forge says he initially envisioned the band with a lead singer other than himself. “ I wanted to write everything and I wanted to do backup vocals. I just wanted to be the guitar player.” I think singing has worked out pretty good for him.
