Who knew the Offspring had been around for so long?

The Offspring and Columbia Records released the band’s ninth studio album, Days Go By, last Tuesday, June 26 – a whopping 20 years since the release of their second album, Ignition.

According to Offspring frontman Dexter Holland, he chose “Days Go By” as the album’s first single, and the title of the album, because of it’s message of hope:

Part of why I chose ‘Days Go By’ as the single and the title of the album is because it really kind of shows – not only with me – that the world has been through a s—– few years and it’s been really tough on a lot of people. People have really gotten hurt and, at the end of the day, no one’s gonna pick you up. You’ve gotta pick yourself up and figure out how to move on. So I guess acknowledging that it’s been tough, but also having a message of hope, is what I really wanted people to take away from this record.

You can stream the entire album, including “Days Go By,” over at Rolling Stone.

What do you think? Is there a message of hope in the title? The lyrics?
