Rancid


details

Rancid as a band have always been imbued with a sense of place: the blue collar neighbourhoods where they grew up in Berkeley, California, their place as individuals within their band, their band as part of a movement and their evolving sense of place in relation to the world at large.

Born in the midst of the post-Reagan economic downturn in the San Francisco Bay Area, the East Bay region specifically, Rancid came to light as Armstrong and Freeman were moving forward after the first band they founded, Operation Ivy, reached a friendly demise. As Rancid, the band took up the torch of social commentary and the examination of the local scene and instantly inflamed the newly revived punk community, setting the stage for what was to come.  Over the past 2 decades, Rancid has shown awareness of their changing environment and have established their place in it, all while never losing sight of themselves as individuals or as a band.
