Rancid finishes first album in six years

Booker T. Jones guests on "Up To No Good"

NEW YORK -- Nineties punk mainstay Rancid has completed work on "Let the Dominoes Fall," the band's seventh album and first in six year. "Dominoes" is scheduled for June 2 release on Hellcat/Epitaph, and the band kicks off a national tour with Rise Against on June 4.

"Dominoes" was recorded at George Lucas' Skywalker Sound Studio in San Francisco, with production by Epitaph Records founder and Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz. Stax organ legend Booker T. Jones contributes some Hammond B3 on the track "Up To No Good."

Rancid last album, 2003's "Indestructible," reached No. 15 on the Billboard 200. That album marked the band's move to Warner Brothers, though the release not carry any mention of the WB name, a move likely designed to appeal to fans who were disappointed by the staunchly independent band's alignment with a major label. "Let the Dominoes Fall" sees the band returning to its original Hellcat/Epitaph home.

Here's the full "Let the Dominoes Fall" track list:

"East Bay Night"
"This Place"
"Up To No Good"
"Last One To Die"
"I Ain't Worried"
"New Orleans"
"Civilian Ways"
"The Bravest Kids"
"Skull City"
"L.A. River"
"Dominoes Fall"
"Liberty and Freedom"
"You Want It, You Got It"
"That's Just The Way It Is Now"
"The Highway"
