It's been a little while since punk rock legends Rancid have graced the stage of the House of Mouse and their return couldn't have come at a better time. Even before the release of ...And Out Come The Wolves in 1995, Rancid reigned supreme on the West Coast punk scene with their raucous live show fronted by Tim Armstrong and Lars Frederickson. Since then the band has put out 4 studio albums. This time around, the band is backed by Branden Steineckert (formerly of The Used) on the drums. With support from H20 and Civet on the House of Blues stage, a night of sweat and furious mosh pits are inevitable. Gel up your liberty spikes and lace up your Doc Martins 'cause it's gonna be a good one.
