The Rancid Punx have a streak. Itís been brought to my attention that since 2000, Rancid or members of , have put out a record every year. Hereís a break down of the past six years. In 2000 there was Rancid V. In 2001, the release of Larsí solo record, Lars Fredriksen and the Bastards. 2002, the Transplants dropped our first album. Rancidís Indestructible was put out in 2003. Larsí second solo record, The Viking, was released in 2004. Travis, Rob, and I went back into the studio to work on the Transplantsí 2nd album, Haunted Cities, which dropped in 2005. And for 2007, Rancid will have out our seventh record.

This year 2006, weíre going to keep the streak going. Iíve been in the studio, recording songs and decided to put them out as a solo record. This album is going to be different from the rest, mainly because weíre going to give it away for free on the internet. Itís our way of saying thanks to everyone, for all the support over the years.

The next record Iíll be working on is Rancidís seventh album. Weíre recording it as soon as we get off the road in December. Our plan is to jump into the studio right after tour, thatís when our playing and singing is the strongest.

In the upcoming years, I hope to make another Transplants album. I love recording with those guys. Weíre not sure if weíre going to make another Bastards record. But you never know because the last one came about kind of organically after the Rancid Japan 2004 tour. Lars and I went into a studio in Tokyo, and demoed a handful of songs that ended up becoming the Viking.

The first song and video off my solo record is called Hold On. It was recorded with the Aggrolites in Los Angeles. This track has an old school sound. We put one mic on the drums and everything was played live, keeping it real raw. The video was shot in one night wth a group of friends. Lars even flew down from SF to hang out and be in it. In the months to come I plan on dropping the rest of the record for free on the internet, one track at a time.
