Rancid’s “Telegraph Avenue” Reminds Us They’re Pop-Punk Legends

Rancid’s “Telegraph Avenue” Reminds Us They’re Pop-Punk Legends

As time moves on, it’s always weird to start hearing the music that we grew up with playing on classic rock radio. We’re not that old, are we? For example, Rancid has been around since 1991, and even though they don’t sound old to us, they were a part of that punk revival that began 26 or so years ago now.

Eight albums later, they’re still at it, and in fact, they have a ninth, titled Trouble Maker, on the way. You wouldn’t be blamed for calling it a return to the band’s roots, especially since the logo not used since their 1993 self-titled debut is used on this cover. A new single from the album, “Telegraph Avenue,” backs that claim up, since it’s right in line with the catchy pop-punk we’ve come to expect from one of the greatest groups to ever do it.

Trouble Maker comes out on June 9, and the album is available for pre-order on vinyl, CD, and digital formats from the band’s website. It shouldn’t be too hard for most fans to catch the band playing tracks from the new album live, since they’ll be pretty busy touring the world between June and August. They’ll be playing festival fates and shows with Green Day from June to early July, then they’ll join the Dropkick Murphy’s for the Boston To Berkeley North American tour from late July to late August.

Check out the tour dates below, and let us know if you’ll be checking out a show.
