The Offspring's Dexter Holland talked to PunkNews about the band's future. He's unsure if the band's next release will be a full album.
We’re not really sure. We used to always do records where we’d go in and spend as long as it took — and sometimes that takes like a year and a half to really do it — and that seems like a long time to wait in between records.

We are filming this entire year to try and cut it down into an hour long Home DVD and the first guy that emailed me about buying that van was like "I only have $1,500 cash, but I have all four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" figurines in their original boxes, including Master Splinter and and Eagles Tour shirt from the '70s."
