Social Distortion has tweeted that they have finished tracking their long-awaited new album and are getting ready to head back into the studio to record vocals.
The album is tracked… finishing up writing and getting ready to head back into the studio to record vocals.
Social Distortion recently signed to Epitaph Records, who will release their new album this fall. The still-untitled new album will be the band’s first of all new material since 2004’s Sex, Love and Rock ‘n’ Roll, and the band’s first release of any kind since the 2007 retrospective Greatest Hits. It will also be their first release with a new lineup consisting of Mike Ness (vocals, guitar), Jonny “2 Bags” Wickersham (guitar) and Brent Harding (bass). It is currently unclear whether or not drummer Atom Willard (who left the band last March) or his replacement Scott Reeder has been involved in the recording.
Social Distortion will tour the U.S. this summer with Dan Sartain and The Action Design. The tour kicks off July 27 in Poughkeepsie, NY and makes seven stops in the Northeast before the band heads to Chicago for an August 7 main stage performance at this year’s Lollapalooza. Dates with Dan Sartain and The Action Design resume in Green Bay, Wisconsin on August 8.
