Tim Timebomb and Friends cover Rancid’s “Salvation”

Tim Timebomb & Friends released another cover song today, this time of the early Rancid hit “Salvation,” off their 1994 album Let’s Go. Says Tim:

“Salvation” was Rancid’s first track that got some national radio attention, and MTV started playing our music video in heavy rotation… We still have fun playin’ it live, and mix it up–doing some things to churn up the arrangement in concert, for example; the band will drop the 2nd verse to a clean guitar and vocal and get a sing along going with our friends at the show. Sometimes we’ll end the song by doing 1/2 step modulations ’til that lands us in the key of F, which turns into the opening strums of “Bloodclot”.

Check out the song here.

Tim Timebomb is the latest side project from Rancid’s Tim Armstrong who has been releasing a long series of singles on iTunes every week since the beginning of December 2012 through Hellcat Records.

Rancid also recently announced the third leg of the tour, which will include Tim Timebomb & Friends and The Interrupters as the supporting acts. All the dates can be found here.
