Social Distortion Begin Work on New Album

Social Distortion

Social Distortion has begun pre-production on their new album:

“We’re scheduled loosely to go into the studio in January,” he said. “But after this October show, we get back into pre-production and the good news is that in the last 15 years, there’s songs that didn’t get used but feel like they’ve just been written, there’s new songs and I think we came up with 23 songs right now. I have to go through those and pick the best 12 or pick the ones that work best together. The other good news is that we might shock everyone and put two records out in two years. People aren’t going to know how to act.”

Mike Ness Discusses New Album Plans

Social Distortion

Mike Ness of Social Distortion recently sat down with Consequence of Sound:

You tour so much, you take a little bit of time off, and then you gotta earn some money, so you just tour more. I’ve been writing songs along the way. But this [recent fall trek was] the last tour. In December, January, February, March, I’ll be in pre-production, getting ready to do the next record. [A 2019 release date] would be nice, for sure, but I don’t want to just rush a record to meet a deadline. This record is really important for our career. I want to make a fuckin’ statement. I want to write the record of my career.

Social Distortion Opening New House of Blues

Social Distortion will be opening the new House of Blues in Orange County:

“I have a love-hate relationship with Orange County,” Ness said during a recent interview at the new House of Blues Anaheim. “I love the weather, I love the beach and I love being close to the mountains and foothills, but every now and again I’m reminded that it’s a pretty conservative county. I’d like to think it’s changed over the last 35 years, but every now and again I’m reminded that it hasn’t.”

Mike Ness also mentions in the article that he’s working on a new music.
