The Offspring Announce New Album ‘Let The Bad Times Roll’

The Offspring are back! The band have announced their new album, Let the Bad Times Roll, out April 16th via Concord Records. The new record marks their first in nine years.

Let the Bad Times Roll sees the band working with Bob Rock, who they previously teamed up with for their last release, 2012’s Days Go By. The album features 12 tracks including the previously released “Coming For You,” a newly recorded of their 1997 classic “Gone Away,” and the title track, which the band recently released.

“Folks are saying, ​‘If it’s all going to Hell, we might as well make the most out of it, or at least go out swinging,’ ” says Noodles. ​“Let The Bad Times Roll!”

Dexter Holland adds, ​“I feel like we’re in a unique period in history where instead of our world leaders saying, ​‘We’re doing our best,’ it’s more like they’re saying, ​‘Fuck it,’ and it’s really scary.”
