The Offspring's Dexter Holland has posted another update on the band's follow up to 2003's Splinter:

Still working on the record over here. Most of the music is recorded and we're working on vocals now. We counted up the other day, we actually demo'd 23 songs for this CD. Wow! That's a new record for us. Of those we've recorded 13. Will they all be on the album? I don't know! We'll see how they turn out. Maybe we'll cut one, or maybe we'll write a couple more. Because we're artists we're flaky like that.

The band plans to play Japan in August, appearing at the Summer Sonic Festival on the 11th and 12th alongside bands like Sum 41, Avenged Sevenfold, Bloc Party, Interpol, and of course Cyndi Lauper.
