Tim Armstrong of Rancid has announced that he will be releasing a new solo album under the name Tim Timebomb and Friends.
The record will be available digitally on December 4 through Hellcat Records, and Armstrong has posted a number of the songs from the record on his website.
Armstrong had the following to say about the record:
"Tim Timebomb and Friends is a place for me to share with you some of my favorite songs that I’ve recorded with friends of mine. I’ve always enjoyed sharing music, whether I’m just sitting around playing acoustic guitar with my friends or breaking out old 45’s. I guess you could call me a music nerd. I like everything from Bob Dylan to the Ramones, to Jimmy Cliff to Cock Sparrer. I plan to bring together a great group of players to record covers as well as some originals. I hope you dig it and encourage you to pass them on."
