Earlier this year, members of Rancid, Pennywise and Suicidal Tendencies joined forces to form a new supergroup called The Crew. The group, which features singer Tim Armstrong and bassist Matt Freeman of Rancid, Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge and drummer Byron McMackin and Suicidal Tendencies vocalist Mike Muir, shared their debut track ‘One Voice’.
Proceeds from a physical seven-inch vinyl release of the song were to benefit Musack, an initiative that provides musical instruments to children and educators.
In other news, it was recently announced that Rancid would no longer be performing at next year’s Slam Dunk Festival. The band were due to headline the Leeds festival alongside Alexisonfire. However, organisers confirmed on November 30 that they would be pulling out, with Sum 41 and Dropkick Murphys set to top the bill instead.
