Punk rock band The Offspring’s European Fansite Dyingscene.com has posted three demo tracks from a recording session in 1986. At the time the line up consisted of Dexter Holland (Vocals), Noodles (Guitar), Greg K (Bass) and James Lilja (Drums).
The songs were originally from a hard to find 42 track compilation tape Subject To Blackout, which also featured bands Excel, No Fraud, SDT, A Number Of Things, Manimal, Youthquake, Desecration, TSA, Conflicting Interests, US Distress, Attitude Adjustment, The Uprising, COTC and A Child’s Trust In God.
The tracks have been remastered by fan site owner, ANDITKO who claims the tracks now have less noise, better EQ, better volume and are just overall better quality.
The Offspring are currently in the studio recording the follow up to Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, which should be released end of 2011 or beginning of 2012.
