Californian ska-punk legends Rancid are set to visit O2 Academy Bristol this winter as part of a 20th anniversary tour.

Rancid teased fans at the end of last year with a post on their Facebook page that read: ‘Guess who’s coming to play in the UK?’

Rancid have released seven studio albums, one split album, one compilation, two EPs, and a series of live online-only albums.

The band have independently sold over four million records worldwide, making them one of the most successful independent punk groups of all time.

The guys rose to fame in 1994 with their second studio album, Let’s Go, featuring the single Salvation.

In the following year, Rancid released their highly successful album …And Out Come the Wolves, which produced the band’s best-known songs, Roots Radicals, Ruby Soho and Time Bomb.

Certified gold and platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, the record sold over one million copies in the United States alone.

Currently working on their eighth album, the follow up to 2009’s Let The Dominos Fall, the guys are also due to headline Blackpool’s Rebellion Punk Music Festival in August.

Rancid hit O2 Academy Bristol on December 12, 2012. Tickets go on sale at 9am on June 29, 2012.
