Greg Beharrell of Canadian rock station X92.9 recently spoke with The Offspring guitarist Noodles. In the interview, Noodles talks about why the band made "Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace", working with producer Bob Rock and the songs off the record.
Asked if The Offspring were planning their next album, Noodles said that frontman Dexter Holland was in Hawaii working with Bob Rock (who also produced "Rise and Fall") and looking back to the songs that didn’t make it onto the last record before they could begin writing new material, although he didn’t offer a timetable for the next record. He also discussed the possibility of releasing a b-sides and rarities compilation album.
