Haunted Cities

Side-project alert! Tim Armstrong (Rancid’s singer-guitarist), Travis Barker (blink-182’s drummer), and Rob Aston (some dude who raps like a wounded grizzly bear) drop a second album that’s fine when they up the ska-rock elements (”Gangsters & Thugs,” ”What I Can’t Describe”) but kind of annoying when they get shouty and sloppy (”Not Today,” ”Pay Any Price”). Think of Transplants as a slightly above-average combo of the Clash, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, and some snotty band from the burbs on Haunted Cities.
