Just a few weeks after announcing their newest and ninth studio album entitled Trouble Maker, Rancid is back with a new song, “Telegraph Avenue”. A video accompanies the three and a half minute track, showing the band in a garage setting. The lyrics ring true to that Rancid formula that directs the listener, street by street, through the East Bay. Throw in a little about the Free Speech Movement and some Anti-Nam protests and you’ve got both a good view of the University of California Berkeley campus and the newest Rancid song. Grab your copy of Trouble Maker on June 9th when it is released via Hellcat and Epitaph Records.
Watch the lyric video for “Telegraph Avenue” below and witness Mat, Tim, and Lars’ masterful choreography of moving to and away from the mics at the same time!
