Fourth studio album from Berkeley, California's Rancid. Life Won't Wait was originally recorded between 1997 and 1998 following the success of the band's third album, And Out Come The Wolves. The recording sessions took place in studios around the US, with the band heading to Jamaica as well. Rancid spiked their old school, Clash influenced punk sound with a heavy dose of ska. It's an intense and catchy album that set the band apart from the rest of the punk crowd when it was released. Includes the songs: "Bloodclot," "Hooligans," "Cash, Culture And Violence," and "Life Won't Wait." Twenty-two tracks in all. Released by Epitaph on double orange vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve.
