Overview

Rancid as a band have always been imbued with a sense of place: the blue collar neighborhoods where
they grew up in Berkley, California, their place as individuals within their band, their band as part of a
movement and their evolving sense of place in relation to the world at large. This year Tim Armstrong
(vocals, guitar), Matt Freeman (bass, vocals), Lars Frederiksen (vocals, guitar), and Branden Steineckert
(drums) return with their ninth studio album…Trouble Maker.
Born in the midst of the post-Reagan economic downturn in the San Francisco Bay Area, the East
Bay region specifically, Rancid came to light as Armstrong and Freeman were moving forward after
the first band they founded, Operation Ivy, reached a friendly demise. As Rancid, the band took up the
torch of social commentary and the examination of the local scene and instantly inflamed the newly
revived punk community, setting the stage for what was to come. After having seen the American
dream dwindle and fade within their country, community and homes, Rancid put their description of
its aftermath into their songs. Each album served as a layer cementing Rancid’s natural place in punk.
Their lyrical themes established their identity in the punk rock world while musically they incorporated
horns, rockabilly bass lines, reggae rhythms, rasp, and distortion. Balancing their personal tales of love,
loss, and heartbreak with attitude, Rancid gave their listeners a community.
Over the past 2 decades, Rancid has shown awareness of their changing environment and have established
their place in it, all while never losing sight of themselves as individuals or as a band.
