Noodles On The Offspring’s New Album Release Plans: “I’m Through Making Predictions”

The Offspring have officially finished their new album, but it looks like there is still no release date for the effort. Kevin “Noodles” Wasserman told Rock 102.1 KFMA the following when asked about the band’s release plans:

“I’m through making predictions. We have a record done — it’s in the can; it’s done. We’re looking for distribution, we’re looking for a record label, and every time I say something, it gets pushed back, and so I’m not even saying anything. I have no idea. We have a record done. I could hit ‘send’ right now, and you would get 12 finished OFFSPRING songs, but that might piss off [singer] Dexter [Holland] a little bit if I did that.”
