Rancid will enter the the studio later this year to record their eighth studio album.

In a post on Facebook.com/rancid, the Californian punks told fans about their plans for the follow-up to 2009's 'Let The Dominoes Fall'.

"We are really excited about doing a small run of shows later this summer with our friends Blink-182. Immediately after those shows Rancid will be headlining four shows on the West Coast. Rancid has been taking an extended break for the last 18 months, and we thought that these shows would help us to get our chops up before going into the studio with [Bad Religion guitarist] Brett Gurewitz to record our eighth album in September."

"It's always good for us to go out and play some shows," add the band, "just to get us ready before going into the studio, and that helps bring that live energy to tape. We'll keep everyone posted with any new developments. 2012 will be a big year for us, because it's our 20th Anniversary, so we're definitely going to do our own tour all over the world. As always, we appreciate your support. See ya in the pit. Rancid."

For more details on their US tour dates with Blink-182 see the band's official site Rancidrancid.com.
