Rancid Hitting Studio to Record New Album

Veteran punk rockers Rancid have set up shop in a San Francisco studio to record what will be their eighth album, reveals drummer Branden Steineckert via Twitter.

Details are sparse on the group’s new disc, which will be their first since 2009’s ‘Let the Dominoes Fall.’ The band has yet to reveal their producer, though Bad Religion’s Brett Gurewitz has overseen each of their records since 2000. While an official release date has not been announced, the disc is tentatively expected to arrive in early 2013.

Rancid will break from the studio on Oct. 16 to play a benefit show in Los Angeles at the home of Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea. The event, which takes place on the bassist’s birthday, will raise funds for Flea’s non-profit Silverlake Conservatory. Rancid will then finish out 2012 with a U.K. tour launching in Belfast Nov. 28.

In related news, Rancid singer Tim Armstrong just revealed via Twitter that his other band, the Transplants, are currently in the process of mixing their next album.
