The American punk rock band, The Offspring, consists of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Decter Holland, lead guitarist Noodles, bassist Greg K., and drummer Pete Parada. They formed in 1984 and are now on their 9th studio album.
The band’s first three albums for the independent record labels Nemesis and Epitaph earned them a following. Their 1994 third studio album Smash became a breakout success and eventually sold over 12 million copies worldwide, setting a record for the most albums sold on an independent label. The critical praise given to Smash garnered attention from labels, including Columbia Records, with whom The Offspring would sign in 1996. Their first album for Columbus, Ixnay on the Hombre was released in 1997 and was well received by critics. The Offspring continued to achieve success with their three follow-up albums, reaching multi-platinum status. Their new album, Days Go By, is due for release on June 26, 2012. The Offspring has sold over 36 million albums worldwide, making them one of the best-selling punk rock acts of all time, and a true joy to see live.
