BOSTON, MA Currently winding down their second tour this spring so far (on the road with Tiger Army now; previously with Catch 22), hardcore upstarts LOST CITY ANGELS have just been invited to support Social Distortion on their upcoming national tour from May 12th to mid-June. This will mark the third time the two bands have toured together… this time however, the Angels will be Social D’s direct support. “I think the last Social D tour we did, I had no idea if it was going to be our last or their last,” said drummer Adam Shaw. “With everything that was going on in the world, who knew what would happen next. To see us on another Social D
tour is beyond a f*ckin’ stoke, I think for once in my life someone answered my prayers..”

As a band who not only influenced Lost City Angels but also took them under their wing, Social Distortion supported LCA when they were just starting out. “In all honestly, Social D is a big part of the history of our band. They taught us so much and we owe them a ton,” replied guitarist Drew Suxx. Adds Adam, “We really wanted to see what Mike Ness of Social D thought of the new record. When we found out he really liked it enough to ask us to tour with him, my mind once again was blown away.”

Their second album, Broken World has been pulling in stunning reviews from the media… from a four-out-of-four bunny review in Playboy (” Broken World is sure to rank among the most exciting releases of the entire summer”) to a five-out-of-five in Alternative Press (“During the best moments of Broken World, Boston’s LOST CITY ANGELS sound like all your favorite punk bands simultaneously… But while a less talented band would trip a less talented band would trip over these influences, the Angels tame them like circus lions”). Released early April 2005 on Stay Gold Records, Broken World combines the brooding dark intensity of goth with the frenetic, jack-hammer-energy of hardcore and 70s-style punk.

Having toured in the past with such luminaries as Agnostic Front, Dropkick Murphys, Murphy’s Law, and, of course, Social Distortion, LCA aren’t strangers to the road. With this past Winter’s Catch 22 tour behind them and soon the Spring’s Tiger Army tour a memory, the next round of non-stop dates on the road with Social Distortion plus WARPED Tour in July shouldn’t phase them. “We f*cking love the road… The ups the downs – just the expierience alone can drive you nuts, but it is what I personally need in life,” explains Adam. “Home may be where the heart is, and right now, the road is my home.”
