The rumors have been confirmed, Rancid have signed to Warner Bros. Believe it? Well, you should, as itís true. The Bay Area quartet will release their sixth studio album on the major label, their first since their (second) self-titled album back in 2000, which was nothing short of a chainsaw to the face. Rancid will headline this yearís Vans Warped Tour and release the untitled new disc on August 26. I hear, in an order to keep gutter punk kids from boycotting the major label release, that the new record will not have WB anywhere on it, just the Hellcat logo. Smart, huh?
