Rancid records at Skywalker Ranch?

George Lucas’ famed Skywalker ranch is home to many projects in the entertainment world- as LA Times writer Geoff Boucher discovered. However, one of things he did notice (that perhaps wasn’t previously known), is that Skywalker Ranch is also home to a recording studio where bands like The Rolling Stones, Third Eye Blind, and Faith Hill have spent time in … but most recently, it was Epitaph punk rockers Rancid, who according to this report, were there for a recording session.

As we know, Rancid are currently working on their new record with Brett Gurewitz. No word of whether they’re actually recording there or whether its post-album touch ups and/or mixing.
