Punk's Rancid to release first album in six years

Punk band  Rancid will release its first album in six years on June 2, two days before it begins a North American tour with  Rise Against  in Vancouver, B.C.

“Let the Dominoes Fall” (Hellcat/Epitaph), the band’s seventh album, was recorded at  George Lucas‘  Skywalker Sound Studio  in  San Francisco, with production by Epitaph founder and  Bad Religion  guitarist  Brett Gurewitz. Stax organ legend  Booker T. Jones  plays  Hammond B3  on the track “Up To No Good.”

Rancid’s last album, 2003’s “Indestructible,” reached No. 15 on the  Billboard 200. That album marked the band’s first and last for  Warner Bros., though the release did not carry any mention of the WB name, a move likely designed to assuage fans disappointed by the staunchly independent band’s alignment with a major label.
