Social Distortion add Boston show to tour plans

, Staff

Legendary punk rockers Social Distortion have extended their touring plans through the fall and will now stop at Boston’s House of Blues on Monday, November 1. Tickets for the show, which go for $30 and $40, are on sale now through Live Nation. Opening the show will be Lucero and Frank Turner.

The band is touring in support of their upcoming and yet-to-be-named seventh album, a follow up to 2004’s critically acclaimed album, Sex, Love and Rock ‘n’ Roll. The band recorded the album this past March in Burbank. It was produced by frontman Mike Ness and currently set for a release in the fall.

Ness recently explained the recording precess to Spinner.com, saying, “We went back to tape, old compressors and old microphones. We’re just really trying to fight modern technology as much as possible,” continuing, “”The record reminds me very much of Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell (the band’s 1992 release), but also I’m bringing elements of early New York ’70s punk”.

In addition to the fall tour, Social Distortion also has two upcoming New England shows. The band will also be playing a show at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom in New Hampshire on Wednesday, July 28. Tickets are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $28. From there, they will make their way to Rhode Island for a show at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence on Friday, July 30 as part of Lupo’s 35 Birthday Celebration. Tickets for the show are now on sale through etix.com for $25 and $33. Both shows will feature opening bands Dan Sartain and The Action Design.
