Rancid Finishing Fifth Disc

Ex–Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz producing album due this summer.

Rancid are finishing up their fifth album, which an Epitaph Records spokesperson said will be "harder, faster and more punk." Ex–Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz is producing the still-untitled disc, which will follow up Life Won't Wait (1998), on which the punk-and-ska group weaved in soul and rockabilly. The new album is due this summer.
