For anyone new to Rocktober, it is a month of music-themed posts. Based on the overwrought radio themes of my youth, when all the local radio stations would declare October to be "Rocktober" and play the same songs they always did, all the time.
Since I just heard some really awesome news, I thought that would be the best way to kick off this Rocktober the 2014th: Rancid is putting out a new studio album. Rancid is one of my MOSTVERYFAVORITE bands and this news just makes me giddy.
Since they are awesome, they didn't do a standard press release to announce it. And they didn't do the YOU WILL HAVE THIS AND YOU WILL LIKE IT! push that U2 recently did on iTunes (though, I will admit, I don't mind that new U2 release)—no, Rancid put out a live video of them performing several of their new songs. So without further ado, I give you Rancid, performing selections from the forthcoming "Honor is All We Know."
Available October 27, preorder available.
