Punk veterans The Offspring have announced their first album in nine years and tenth overall, Let The Bad Times Roll, due April 16 via Concord (pre-order). It's their third consecutive album produced by hard rock giant Bob Rock (Metallica, Motley Crue, etc), and the first single is the title track, which is a lighter, power-poppier song than the band's '90s classics but still a very Offspring-sounding song, and one with a topical message. "I feel like we're in a unique period in history where instead of our world leaders saying ‘we’re doing our best,’ it’s more of a stubborn mentality where they’re not making the slightest attempt to fix things," Dexter Holland said. "It’s like ‘fuck it, bring on the North Korea nukes, bring on white nationalism.’ It's a much different attitude than I've seen in the past. And it’s really fucking scary."

You can listen to the new song and check out the tracklist below.
