Offspring frontman Dexter Holland has posted another update on the band's recording process. The band has finished two more songs at Bob Rock's studio in Hawaii. The band has now returned to Orange County, California for further studio work. The band has reportedly recorded at least 13 songs so far, including one titled "Take Me Nowhere."
The yet-to-be-titled new record will follow up 2003's Splinter and is expected in late 2007 or early 2008 via Columbia Records. It will be the band's first studio album recorded with drummer Atom Willard (Rocket From The Crypt, Angels and Airwaves).
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 and Interpol. They are also scheduled to play at Studio Coast in Tokyo on August 14th. These shows mark the band's first live shows since the 2005 Warped Tour.
