Rock ‘n’ roll heavyweights Social Distortion have announced a US spring tour in support of their critically acclaimed new album, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes. Touring in support will be Chuck Ragan and Sharks. Tickets go on sale January 28/29, depending on the market (

On the verge of their highest charting album to date, Social Distortion kicked off their West Coast tour last week with three consecutive sold-out shows in Las Vegas. Despite a struggling time for tours in general, the Orange County legends have already sold-out most all of the shows on their current tour.

Fans aren’t the only ones lining up for Social Distortion either. On January 18, Social Distortion released their first album in over six years to mass critical acclaim. “Mike Ness and his band of punks are as intense as ever,” says USA Today. “Amassing influences from Stones/Skynyrd gospel raunch (Diamond in the Rough), through Clash meets Springsteen broadsides (Writing On the Wall), Ness’ songs tackle his experience with hard unforgiving honesty” (Uncut). “Ness has reaffirmed his relevance with a vengeance” (SPIN).
