Punk trio the Transplants has inked with Atlantic, which will release the group's second album, "Haunted Cities," on June 21. The set will feature guest appearances by Cypress Hill's B-Real and Sen Dog, Dilated Peoples' Rakaa and the Boo-Yaa Tribe.

The Transplants, which consist of Rancid principal Tim Armstrong, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and vocalist Rob Aston, will support "Haunted Cities" on this summer's Vans Warped Tour from June 18 in Columbus, Ohio, through Aug. 15 in Northampton, Mass.

"Haunted Cities" is the follow-up to the band's 2002 self-titled debut, released by Hellcat/Epitaph. That set debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart and has sold 222,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
