Social Distortion Announce Tour Around 25th Anniversary of Self-Titled Album

Social Distortion will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Social Distortion with a massive North American tour where they’ll perform their 1990 eponymous third album in full.

They’ll also be treating the audience to their hits and rarities, starting July 28 in Tempe, Ariz. From there, the band will hit a handful of southern cities before traveling throughout the Midwest to the East Coast and backtracking out west for a final show Sept. 11 in Paso Robles, Calif.

“We are very excited about this tour,” frontman Mike Ness said in a statement. “It’s not often we get to celebrate anniversaries of records, or play them in their entirety, but this record was a milestone for us and after rehearsing it we realized it was a hell of a set… High energy and good flow. It was a great feeling to play songs that I hadn’t played in twenty years, or more. It’s inspirational to “revisit” this album; especially during the writing of a new record. All I can say is ‘it’s gonna be a kick ass show!!!!’”

Social Distortion had three alt rock-charting singles, including originals “Let It Be Me” and “Ball and Chain” plus Johnny Cash cover “Ring of Fire.”
