Last year, Tim Armstrong noted that new material from Rancid and the Transplants would be on the way, but before those records drop, fans can look forward to Armstrong’s solo project, Tim Timebomb and Friends, releasing a debut album on Dec. 11.
Armstrong has been posting tracks on his official YouTube channel over the past few weeks, offering a mix of originals and covers with several guest musicians, including Pink and Travis Barker.
“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,” Armstrong wrote on the Tim Timebomb website. ”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.” (more…)

The appearance featured Barker (obviously) behind the drums, Gretsch signature artist Tim Armstrong on guitar and vocals, Skinhead Rob on more vocals and legendary DJ Mix Master Mike.
