Rancid Preview New LP ‘Trouble Maker’ With Blistering ‘Ghost of a Chance’

Berkeley punks return to garage in simple clip for first offering from ninth LP

Rancid return to the garage in the video for “Ghost of a Chance,” the new single from their upcoming album, Trouble Maker, out June 9th.

The simple clip finds the Berkeley punk stalwarts playing the rockabilly-tinged ripper. Singer/guitarist Tim Armstrong growls a message of fierce positivity and perseverance. After a blistering guitar solo from Lars Frederiksen, Armstrong bellows, “When the odds are small/ Don’t let ’em stop ya/ Cause we only got a Ghost of a chance, my brother/ We only got a ghost of a chance.”

Troublemaker marks Rancid’s ninth studio album and follows their 2014 LP, …Honor Is All We Know. The record is available to pre-order digitally and on CD and vinyl. The band is also selling a variety of bundles, which include LPs pressed on colored vinyl and seven-inch singles featuring bonus cuts “We Arrived Right On Time” b/w “Go On Rise Up.”

Rancid will embark on a massive tour this summer with the Dropkick Murphys starting July 27th in Bangor, Maine. The trek will feature the Bouncing Souls and Jake Burns of the Stiff Little Fingers as openers through August 9th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The stretch between August 11th in Denver, Colorado and August 26th in Los Angeles, California will feature the Selector and 7 Seconds’ Kevin Seconds.
