As the Offspring wraps up its 20th anniversary tour, the band is looking toward the future.
Guitarist Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman says they have as many as five songs "done or close to done." He says there's one track they "really feel strongly about and want to get out there" - maybe sooner rather than later.
Wasserman says it doesn't seem right to make fans wait, so he and his bandmates are contemplating releasing the new music as an EP or as a series of singles. He adds that "it's amazing how immediate everything can be now."
The Offspring has been celebrating the group's 1994 debut album Smash on the road for most of the summer. The trek is scheduled to stop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Tuesday, and Council Bluffs, Iowa on Thursday. They'll play Chicago's Riot Fest on Friday before bringing the tour to a close in Sacramento, California on Saturday.
