While details of the 2012 Sunset Strip Music Festival weekend are still coming together, the Los Angeles-based festival's website went live with the news on who will be playing the outdoor stages on Aug. 18.
The Offspring received generally positive reviews for the title track from their 'Days Go By' album, but their follow-up single, 'Cruising California (Bumpin' in My Trunk),' is proving to be one of their more polarizing songs in some time.
The debate has raged amongst punk fans for years. Are the Offspring a punk band or not? Even the band's own members have a little question about it and they address the topic in a new video they've posted on their website.
Kevin John Wasserman, the beloved and bespectacled axeman of the Offspring, goes by the simple stage name Noodles. Having worked as a janitor at Earl Warren Elementary school in Garden Grove, California, the guitarist was given his nickname from his constant noodling on the guitar.
The Offspring’s new disc ‘Days Go By’ won’t be out until later this month June 26, but fans have already had a taste of what it plans to deliver via the care-free and summer-ready first single of the same name.
Riot Fest is getting bigger by the year. The Chicago based festival has grown to the point where it can no longer be held by just clubs, and the festival's organizers will incorporate a full outdoor music event and carnival for the first time this year. In addition, Loudwire is giving away a pair of tickets to see the festival (see below for details).
The Offspring have debuted the title track / first single from their upcoming ninth album 'Days Go By' and it's what you'd expect from these perennial Warped Tour rockers. Potent melodies, singalong choruses, big power chords, frontman Dexter Holland's signature nasally vocals and a summer-appropriate energy.
The Offspring are one of the most renowned and successful bands in punk rock history, selling over 36 million albums worldwide. Having adopted the name of the Offspring after begin called Manic Subsidal from 1994 to 1996, the band exploded into the mainstream with their 1994 smash album… uhh… 'Smash.'
