The Offspring aren't sure how they're going to release music in the future. As reported in an Australian interview, this could be with Columbia or another label or maybe for free online.
At this point, all options are open. Either we go back and try and renegotiate a deal with Columbia or work with someone else or maybe even make our music free on the internet. In a way it’s very liberating, as well as being scary, not knowing what to do and having to figure it out for ourselves, but you know, we’ve been doing this for quite a while and I’m sure we’ll land on our feet.
