"Indestructible" is the sixth album by Rancid, released on August 19, 2003 (see 2003 in music). On vinyl, it is also a double album. Despite critical acclaim, the band was criticized by many fans for "Indestructible"'s poppier sound. It debuted (and peaked) at #15 on the charts, with 51,000 copies sold in its first week, making it Rancid's highest charting album so far and best opening week saleswise.

"Indestructible" was not Rancid's final album. The band went on hiatus in 2004 while all members of the band were involved in their own projects. However, they got back together in 2006 for a tour, but longtime drummer Brett Reed left the band while they were working on this album's follow-up, making it seem possible that "Indestructible" could be Rancid's last recording with him.

Writing and production

After a break in 2001, Rancid returned to the studio with co-producer Brett Gurewitz in 2002, to record their next album. Work on it was meant a year long for the band. Most notably, finishing up the album was extremely stressful for all of the members of Rancid.

Delay of release

The album was delayed several times before its official release. First scheduled for release was summer/fall 2002, then early 2003, mid-2003 and now August 19, 2003. One of the reasons why "Indestructible" had yet to be released was their various other activities. Singer/guitarist Tim Armstrong released an album with his then-new side project Transplants and second guitarist Lars Frederiksen released an album with Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards.
