The Transplants' Rob Aston recently had a chat with Punk International's Tim Krysko during which he dropped a few interesting news stories. Among them he mentions that the Transplants will tour and probably record another album in 2003. Rancid is currently in the studio recording their new album and will be on the 2003 Warped Tour. Also, Rob mentions that he is in the process of writing and recording a solo hip hop record that should see the light of day (likely) on Hellcat at some point in 2003. Hit Punk International for the entire interview. They've also got their new compilation "Pangaea: Volume 1" available. It's a showcase of international punk rock with 26 bands from 21 countries.
