Rancid's Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman and the
Slackers' Vic Ruggiero are gearing up to record their first
full-length album as The Silencers, according to Armstrong's
label, Hellcat Records. The traditional ska band previously released the
track "Policeman" on the compilation album Give 'Em the Boot
(1997), albeit with a slightly differently lineup. Recording for the
new disc begins this month.
