The Offspring

The Offspring has announced a June 17 street date for its new Columbia effort “Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace” and the offering of a free download of first single “Hammerhead.”

“Hammerhead” became available today (May 5) on the band’s official Web site, offspring.com. Users need to provide an email address to receive a link to a high-quality MP3 of the track, which comes free of digital rights management.

“Rise and Fall,” a 12-track set originally due in March, was produced by Bob Rock, best known for his work with Motley Crue and Metallica. Lead singer Dexter Holland told Billboard in January that he also received guidance from Rick Rubin throughout the recording process, describing the legendary producer as an “invaluable resource.”

Holland, who said Rock didn’t alter the band’s Southern California punk sound too much, called its eighth studio effort the “best thing we’ve ever done -- we spent over a year and a half on it, and it shows.”

Besides a CD and digital release, a gatefold vinyl edition of “Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace” will come bundled with a free digital download of the album.

Here is the track list to ”Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace”:

1. Half-Truism
2. Trust In You
3. You're Gonna Go Far, Kid
4. Hammerhead
5. A Lot Like Me
6. Takes Me Nowhere
7. Kristy, Are You Doing Okay?
8. Nothingtown
9. Stuff Is Messed Up
10. Fix You
11. Let's Hear It For Rock Bottom
12. Rise And Fall
