OFF! Finish Recording New Album, Announce May Release
Published Feb 28, 2012While OFF! were initially billed as a supergroup, their acclaimed First Four EPs from 2010 was good enough that the band -- composed of members of beloved acts like Circle Jerks, Hot Snakes and Redd Kross -- have become lauded in their own right. This means that fans of vintage hardcore will be thrilled to learn that the group's sophomore LP is on the way.
In a caption accompanying a studio picture on Facebook, the group wrote, "Day 3 in the studio. New album has been recorded. On to mixing." So by the sound of things, it only took them a few days to cut the whole thing, which we're guessing means that they haven't tamed down at all.
According to a listing on retailer Insound, the as-yet-untitled album will be out on May 8 via Vice Records. This was seemingly confirmed by the band, who posted a Facebook note saying that it would indeed be out in May. This also falls in line with previous reports that the group were working on a new album for a spring release.
While we wait for some official confirmation about the new record's due date, OFF! have a few U.S. festival dates booked for the coming months, so see the schedule right here.
