Music news

The American punk rock band The Offspring will be present at the Nîmes festival on June 26, 2024. Places are available.

For roller punk fans who didn’t get a seat at Hellfest (which is now sold out), The Offspring announces a new date in France. The group will indeed be present at the Nîmes Festival on June 26, 2024, with the Canadians of Simple Plan. Places are available.

This will be the first appearance of Dexter Holland, Noodles and their band at the Arènes de Nîmes since 2011. In addition to classics like “Come Out And Play” or “The Kids Aren’t Alright”, they will present Let The Bad Times Roll, their latest album to date. Noodles explained to WECB why this famous record took nine years to come out: “We are constantly composing and recording when we can. We toured a lot in fact and we waited a bit to really feel it before refining certain things and then going into the studio. I consider that we don’t need to release an album every two years but only when we feel we have the songs for it. We have always worked like this. The first drafts of certain songs on the album date back five or six years, they just needed to macerate a little…”

Simple Plan, for their part, will present Harder Than It Looks, their latest album to date. This disc notably includes “Ruin ​​My Life”, in which Deryck Whibley, singer of Sum 41.

The poster for the next edition of the Nîmes Festival is gradually being revealed. Among the first names revealed, we notably find Eric Clapton on May 31, Shaka Ponk and Dionysos on June 14, without forgetting James Blunt, accompanied on this occasion by Suzanne Vega, on July 16.
