The Offspring Announce Tour
The Offspring, one of rock’s most exciting and enduring bands, have announced they will hit the road this May for their first full North American tour in nearly 4 years. The announcement came via the band’s just unveiled “S*** Is F***ed Up” tour widget featuring a mock “presidential address” by Dexter Holland (vocals, guitar). View the widget now on www.offspring.com.
Dexter along with Noodles (guitar), Greg K (bass) and Pete Parada (drums) will kick things off May 15 in
Following the success of the single “Hammerhead” and its follow-up “You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid,” The Offspring remain a favorite on the airwaves with “Kristy, Are You Doing Okay?,” the band’s third radio hit from their latest Columbia Records release Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace.
Produced by the legendary Bob Rock [Metallica, The Cult], the new album has forged new territory while staying true to the Offspring's vision. Every song on their eighth studio release delivers, lengthening the list of accomplishments from a band that has performed over 1000 shows and has sold more than 34 million albums worldwide. Fifteen years after its release, their 1994 release Smash remains the highest-selling album of all time on an independent label.
