The Offspring recently left Columbia Records, which had been their label since 1996, and some fans have been questioning who will release the band's next album. Even though the band has considered releasing new material independently, it looks like Dexter Holland's label Nitro Records has become obsolete, with no new artists, no new recordings, nothing. If they want to release new material independently, they should join Fat Wreck Chords. The label's founder Fat Mike and his bandmates in NOFX have been friends with The Offspring for over 20 years, toured together and seem to getting along very well. Singing The Offspring to Fat Wreck would be a remarkable transition the punk scene of today.
