Let the Dominoes Fall is the seventh studio album by the American punk rock band Rancid. It was released on June 2, 2009 through Hellcat Records. It is their first album of new material in nearly six years, following 2003's Indestructible, and their first with drummer Branden Steineckert, who joined the band in 2006 after the departure of founding drummer Brett Reed.
The span of nearly six years between Indestructible and Let the Dominoes Fall was Rancid's longest gap between studio albums in their career. The band had begun working on new material after their temporary hiatus in 2004, but showed no signs of a new album until January 2008, when they announced that they had begun recording with producer and Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz. The writing and recording process was finally finished in February 2009.
The album's first single "Last One to Die," was released on April 7, 2009 via the band's Myspace page. As of May 26, 2009 the album can be heard on MySpace entirely. "Up To No Good" was released as the album's second single.
A deluxe edition of the album was also released on June 2, 2009. In addition to the regular album, it includes a bonus CD featuring twelve of the songs from the album in acoustic form, a DVD featuring a documentary about the making of the album, three posters and four guitar picks. It debuted at #11 on the Billboard 200, making this Rancid's highest charting album to date.
"The Bravest Kids" was featured on EA Sports' NHL 2010.
