NEW YORK, May 5 /PRNewswire/ — The Offspring have returned.

Dexter Holland (vocals, guitar), Noodles (guitar), Greg K (bass) and Pete Parada (drums) are gearing up for the June 17, 2008 release of Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace Columbia Records, an impressive new set of songs from one of rock’s most exciting and enduring bands. The single, “Hammerhead,” will be available for free download at the revamped beginning May 5, the same day that the song is officially released to radio. A special gatefold vinyl edition of the album with access to a free download of the album will be released alongside the traditional CD and download.

The Offspring entered the studio with legendary producer Bob Rock (Metallica, The Cult) to record 12 new songs culled from the most productive songwriting period in the band’s history. The end result is a broad reaching album forging new territory while staying true to the band’s vision. Every song on the band’s eighth studio album delivers.

That’s quite the accomplishment for a band that has performed over 1000 shows and has sold more than 34 million albums worldwide, including their 1994 release “Smash,” which more than a decade after its release remains the highest-selling album of all time on an independent label.
