According to DyingScene.com, The Offspring guitarist Noodles talkes about the possibility of a live album, and mentioned they will begin work on their next album after they finish touring in support of their latest album "Days Go By" next year. He states:
"We'd definitely knock out a live album, I think. You know, it'd be something we'd, you know, be interested in doing, but it's not a main priority of ours though. Right now, we're just taking the new songs, this is the first time we're playing almost the whole record, and we have it almost ready to go live, and so, we're just trying to feel what's, you know, play the songs and get the reaction from the audience, find out what's working well in the live thing. Sometimes what sounds like coming out of your speakers doesn't always translate to the live arena, you know, so we're working on that. I've been having a lot of fun playing the new songs though, so right now that's kind of our focus, and then once we get off tour, we'll sit down and take a look at a new record."
Noodles also hinted that The Offspring, who performed their 1992 second album "Ignition" in its entirety at recent shows, could do an anniversary tour in 2014 to commemorate the releases of their self-titled debut album and "Smash" (released in 1989 and 1994 respectively), stating, "When it's 20 years of Smash, it's also 25 years of our first record. So, I don't know, we're going to have to do both of those back to back. I don't know, we'll see. That's only two years from now."
"Days Go By" was released last June and is The Offspring's ninth studio album in their career. The album, which landed at #12 the Billboard 200, was their first full-length since 2008's "Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace" and their first recording with current drummer Pete Parada, who joined the band just prior to the release of the aforementioned album.
