THE OFFSPRING: To Perform “Days Go By” On “Jimmy Kimmel Live” On June 25!

The Offspring

THE OFFSPRING will perform Monday June 25 on ABC-TV’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” as a part of the Jimmy Kimmel Live! summer concert series on the outdoor stage.  The band–Dexter Holland (vocals, guitar), Noodles (guitar), Greg Kriesel (bass) and Pete Parada (drums)—will perform their top 10 alternative and active rock first single “Days Go By,” the title track from their new album due out Tuesday, June 26 (Columbia Records).

On DAYS GO BY, the Huntington Beach, CA quartet once again break all the rules in true punk fashion on their ninth album. The single “Days Go By” glides on an irresistible riff and arena-sized hook. Meanwhile, “OC Guns” swings from swaggering SoCal reggae into a mariachi breakdown and “Cruising California (Bumpin’ in My Trunk)” jokingly recounts an afternoon rolling around the beach with nothing but time to kill and scantily girls to flirt with.  Then, there’s the final speed punk death march of dual salvo “Dividing by Zero” and “Slim Pickens Does The Right Thing And Rides The Bomb To Hell.” It’s unique, unpredictable and undeniably THE OFFSPRING.

THE OFFSPRING’s last album, 2008’s Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace, featured the alternative and rock radio staples “Hammerhead” and “You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid.”  Also among the band’s best-known hits are the rock anthems “Self Esteem,” “Come Out And Play (Keep ‘Em Separated)” and “The Kids Aren’t Alright.”  The Huntington Beach, CA-based band has performed over 1100 shows across the globe and sold more than 36 millionalbums worldwide.  Their 1994 release Smash remains the highest-selling album of all-time on an independent label.

THE OFFSPRING will tour worldwide through 2012.
