17 JUNE 2021 (TORONTO, ON) – SoCal icons and one of punk rock’s best-selling bands of all time, The Offspring, announced today they will release a 7” vinyl of the French version “We Never Have Sex Anymore” on August 20th, 2021. “We Never Have Sex Anymore” is on The Offspring’s tenth studio album Let The Bad Times Roll, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Alternative album chart, charted at #2 on Billboard Top Rock Albums and #27 on the Billboard Top 200 in its first week. The album, which marks the band’s first in almost a decade, was released April 16th via Concord Records.
The band’s frontman Dexter Holland committed to the new version of the song by taking French lessons to make it sound as authentic as possible. On recording the French version Holland said: “The song is about lamenting a lost relationship or still being in a relationship that’s not quite there anymore. The passion is gone and passion is very French, I don’t know how to explain it but I feel passion when I’m in France (in a good way). When we wrote this song, I just thought ‘this needs to be done in French, there’s just no other way’, so we did.”
Rock Cellar Magazine hailed “We Never Have Sex Anymore” a track that “boasts a memorable hook and a whimsical spirit,” while Loudwire proclaimed it one of the best rock & metal songs released in April 2021.
The Offspring have shown no signs of slowing down as they continue to dominate airplay and charts worldwide, ascending to #1 at Active Rock and inching towards Top 15 at Alternative radio. Let The Bad Times Roll has sold over 38,000 units and amassed nearly 22 million streams across the U.S since its debut. Success for the album has skyrocketed to the top of the charts all around the globe, hitting career high chart debuts with seven top 5s and ten top 10s, including an all-new top 3 in the U.K., marking their highest-charting to date in the market.
Legends and innovators of the Southern California punk rock scene, The Offspring have sold more than 40 million albums worldwide, won countless awards, and have toured consistently, playing more than 500 shows in the last decade alone. Their music has had a lasting impact across film, television, and video games, but the band turned their focus to a new album release in 2021. The band is comprised of singer Dexter Holland, guitarist Noodles, drummer Pete Parada and bassist Todd Morse.
