Rancid's New Venture

Rather than release a new album it looks like the punk guys from Rancid has decided to ride the online video wave by conjuring up a video series called “Rock N Roll Theater.”

In the teaser video below, you’ll quickly see that all of the members of Rancid are acting in the show, with Guitarist/Vocalist Lars Frederickson taking the lead. You’ll also recognize that all of the backing music are original pieces made by Rancid. I can foresee that these songs will become an album all their own. That’s a no brainer.

Although some may want to critique Rancid for trying to copy off of Green Day’s success on Broadway, I for one, appreciate what the group is doing here and welcome a refreshed outlook on the punk rock scene.
