It's a busy year for Tim Armstrong. Not only did he reunite with Operation Ivy's Jesse Michaels in the new ska band Bad Optix, Rancid just announced their first new album in six years. It's called Tomorrow Never Comes, it was produced by longtime collaborator/Epitaph founder/Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz, and it comes out on June 2 via Hellcat/Epitaph. The lead single is the title track, which picks right up where Rancid's other genuinely good late-career albums left off. It's a street punk ripper that sounds like classic Rancid, and it scratches the same itch as Rancid's actual classics. They aren't changing things up much these days, but they still know how to churn out anthems with real urgency. Check it out below.

We've got an exclusive opaque neon pink vinyl variant of the album, and that's limited to just 500 copies. Pre-order yours while they last. Here's a mock-up:
