SOCIAL DISTORTION ANNOUNCE JAN/FEB WEST COAST HARD TIMES TOUR DATES

Los Angeles, CA – Iconic Southern California rock ‘n’ roll band Social Distortion have announced a January/February west coast tour in support of their highly anticipated forthcoming album, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, which is scheduled for release on January 18. Touring in support will be Lucero and Chuck Ragan, with The Aggrolites playing select dates.

Social Distortion’s west coast run marks the first time since 2004/2005 the band has done a full tour of the region. The band is currently trekking across the country on a headlining US tour, ripping through classics and previewing songs from their long awaited new studio album, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, for diehard fans.

Their first album in over six years, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, builds on singer Mike Ness’ twin footings, one in the haunted American landscapes of Hank Williams and the other in the raw swagger of Exile-era Rolling Stones. While these twin pillars have always been behind Social Distortion’s anthemic songs, on Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes they come roaring to the fore, in one of the hardest rocking, most soulful, albums of Ness’ career. Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes’ first single, “Machine Gun Blues,” will be available for download exclusively through iTunes beginning November 16.

Fans and critics are taking notice as Social Distortion unveils new songs at shows across the country and west coast supporters are chomping at the bit to get in on the action. Don’t miss one of rock ‘n’ roll’s great live bands in a city near you!
