According to a short paragraph in a recent LA Times story, veteran punk act Rancid are currently recording for three weeks at George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch.

The story notes:

Outside the theater I see some guys with tattoos and skater–metal hair. It's the band Rancid, visiting the ranch scoring stage for a three–week album session. (The place has lot of music clients; the Rolling Stones, Herbie Hancock, Faith Hill, Third Eye Blind and Kronos Quartet have recorded here, some looking for the perfect acoustics, others for a studio with no pubs in sight).

As I pass Rancid, they are discussing the vagaries of punk–rock credibility while sipping tea and coffee drinks. I bite my tongue and keep walking.

Rancid is hard at work on the long–waited follow up to 2003's Indestructible. Earlier this year, the band issued B Sides and C Sides.
