The Offspring have said they are "12 or 13" songs into the writing process of their new album.

The release will be the band's ninth studio record, and the follow-up to 2008's 'Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace'.

Speaking in their official band podcast, which you can hear by scrolling down and clicking below, vocalist/guitarist Dexter Holland gave an update to fans about how the sessions were going.



"It's going to be great," he claimed, as well as revealing how far into the writing process the band were. "It's going to be the best damn record we ever did."

He added: "You know what's a really good sign? When you are working on a song and you play it for a niece or nephew, or a young kid, preferably about five and if it sticks with that kid and you hear them humming it later in the day!"

The Offspring are set to play the UK's Reading And Leeds Festivals in August.
