There’s been several bands we’ve been waiting patiently, to produce new music. Looks like we’ll be getting new Offspring, Tool, and Godsmack.
The Offspring has offered an update on the progress of their long-awaited 10th studio album. The band posted a Twitter photo of their December calendar, with the rest of the week marked “studio.”
“Who’s ready for new music in 2018?” they write in the caption.
The Offspring’s last album, Days Gone By, was released in 2012. In 2015, they released a standalone single called “Coming for You,” which reached number one on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Songs chart.
Godsmack has offered an update on the progress of their new album. In a Twitter post, the band reveals that the follow-up to 2014’s 1000hp is “almost done.”
Along with the album news, Godsmack has also shared a clip of guitaristTony Rombola recording a new guitar solo. “Mr. Tony Rombola killin’ it in the studio!” the caption reads.
The new album is due out in 2018. Godsmack will play a number of festivals next spring, including Welcome to Rockville, Fort Rock, Carolina Rebellion and Rock on the Range.
Here’s another encouraging sign that the new Tool album may actually be releasing their new album. After drummer Danny Carey declared that the long-awaited follow-up 2006’s 10,000 Days would finally arrive in 2018, Tom Morello reports that he’s listened to what the band’s been working on, and he likes what he’s heard.
On his Instagram, Morello has posted a photo of him alongside Carey, bassist Justin Chancellor and guitarist Adam Jones. “Had the honor of being the first outsider to hear new #TOOL music today!!” Morello writes in the caption.
Notably absent from the photo is frontman Maynard James Keenan — only the instrumentals have been recorded so far.
“Still just instrumentals but sounded epic, majestic, symphonic, brutal, beautiful, tribal, mysterious, deep, sexy and VERY Tool,” Morello writes. “Really great. So excited to hear the record when it’s finished.”
