Rancid ...And Out Come The Wolves: 20th Anniversary Edition on Limited Edition 180g LP + Poster + Download
The landmark 1995 record that at once invoked and transcended the punk rock genre, cementing Rancid's place forever as one of the great rock bands of all time. ...And Out Come the Wolves combines Dylanesque portrayals of down-and-out street life and personal experience with tunefully concise, dynamic songwriting to create an enduring body of work that grows better with each listen and every passing year.
Styles range from the recklessly belligerent punk rock rampage of "Maxwell Murder" (featuring a mind-numbing Matt Freeman bass solo), to the masterful pop craftsmanship of "Ruby Soho" and the fully realized punk/ska hybrid of "Time Bomb" (a sound that Armstrong and Freeman pioneered in their first band Operation Ivy). Produced by Jerry Finn and mixed by Andy Wallace, this record is deservedly among the most influential and successful of it's time.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of this very special release in their history, Epitaph Records is proud to present this limited edition vinyl pressing of Rancid's ...And Out Come The Wolves. Remastered for the first time since its release, in 1994, when digital mastering was in its infancy, this pressing is a first opportunity to hear this incredible record in all its stunning hard-hitting fidelity - the way it was always meant to be heard. The way, the late great, Jerry Finn would have wanted it. The remastered LP is digitally remastered from original analog tapes and is pressed on 180 gram vinyl with poster featuring lyrics on one side and the album cover on the other.
