NEW YORK (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) - Watch the video here:
Today, Rancid debut the fearless and vibrant video for their summer anthem "Last One To Die" from their forthcoming album 'Let The Dominoes Fall' (June 2, Hellcat/Epitaph) via their MySpace page.
Directed by Colonel Walter E. Kurtz (aka Rancid's Tim Armstrong) and with Kevin Kerslake (Nirvana, Sonic Youth) as director of photography, the video pays homage to the band's East Bay roots with shots at Golden Gate Fields, the Oakland Tribune and more.
"It's a risky as hell video," says Rancid's longtime producer, Epitaph Records founder and Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz. "Risky," he explains, "in the sense that it celebrates their storied history, battle scars and all, in defiant honesty. The result is a stirring testament to a band that matters more now than ever."
'Let The Dominoes Fall' is Rancid's seventh album and first release in six years. Recorded at George Lucas' Skywalker Sound Studio, it features nineteen new songs, all written by Rancid, covering topical issues with ferocity and defiance.
An expanded edition of the album will also be released with a bonus CD with acoustic versions of twelve songs from the album, and a DVD of 'Let The Dominoes Fall - The Making of the Seventh Record,' three foldout posters and four custom guitar picks. The band will perform at KROQ-FM's Weenie Roast y Fiesta at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, CA on May 16th before heading on a 33-city tour with Rise Against in June.
