Rancid return

CALIFORNIAN punk rockers Rancid have announced a Belfast show in Mandela Hall with Runnin Riot and Dubtones on Wednesday, November 28.

To date, Rancid have released seven studio albums and have independently sold over four million records worldwide, making it one of the most successful independent punk groups of all time.

The band rose to fame in 1994 with their second studio album, Let’s Go.

In the following year, Rancid released its highly successful album ...And Out Come the Wolves, which produced their best-known songs Roots Radicals, Ruby Soho and Time Bomb, and was certified gold and platinum.

Rancid will release their eight studio album later this year. Legendary guitarist, producer and record label owner Tim Armstrong formed Rancid after the break up of Operation Ivy and has since played with Travis Barker of Blink 182 fame with The Transplants, releasing two critically acclaimed albums and recently reforming to work on a third.

Tickets (£21) are on sale now from The Stiff Kitten bar and Ticketmaster.
