US punks Rancid will mark their 20th anniversary with a sure-to-be-significant British and Irish tour. Beginning in Belfast on 28 Nov, the fourteen date outing includes two successive nights at the Forum in London’s Kentish Town also featuring co-headliners Cock Sparrer. Meanwhile Rancid, who have been talking about a new studio LP – their eighth to date – for almost a year now, will begin recording in November prior to the tour.
