Release date: June 2012
Days Go By is the ninth studio album by the American punk rock band The Offspring, released on June 26, 2012. It is their first album in four years, following the release of Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace in 2008. Days Go By is also their first recording to feature drum work by Pete Parada, who joined the band a year before the release of Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace. The drum tracks were also recorded by session musician Josh Freese, who provided the same role on the band's previous two albums.
The Offspring commenced work on the album as early as 2009 and planned to release it in 2010, but was pushed back several times while the band continued touring and writing new material. The writing and recording process spanned three years and recording studios in Hawaii and California and was finished in March 2012. Days Go By's lead single and title track was premiered on radio on April 27, 2012.
