Offspring is putting the finishing touches on its first album in seven years. In between touring, the band has been recording with Grammy-winning producer Bob Rock on a yet-to-be-titled album – Offspring’s first since 2012’s Days Go By and its third consecutive release with Rock, who also produced 2008’s Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the Southern California band’s formation and the 25th anniversary of 1994’s landmark album Smash, which has sold more than 10-million copies and remains the highest-selling indie album of all time.

The Offspring has performed in excess of 1,000 shows and its last single, Coming For You, marked the 27th Billboard Alternative Songs entry for the band, tying the group with R.E.M. for sixth place among acts with the most visits since the chart began in 1988.

The band, which is currently touring overseas, just wrapped a North American run that included Vans Warped Tour 25th Anniversary shows.

Sum 41 is celebrating the chart success off its most recent release, Order In Decline and has locked in spots at No. 2 on the Top 200 and No. 1 Rock and No. 1 Hard Music on the Canadian album charts.

The success continued worldwide with No. 2 spots on both the U.S. Current Rock and Hard Music Album charts, No. 3 on the U.S. Alternative charts, No. 8 on the U.S. Top Current Albums charts, as well as a No. 2 spot on the U.K. Rock and Metal charts.

The lead single from the album, Out For Blood, landed the band in the Top 10 of the Canadian Active Rock Radio share and currently holds the No. 7 spot. The single peaked at No. 1 on Sirius XM.

Sum 41 consists of five members — Deryck Whibley, Dave Brownsound, Tom Thacker, Cone McCaslin and Frank Zummo.
