Revered Southern California rock 'n' rollers Social Distortion will be playing night one of this year's installment of the annual Almost Acoustic Christmas show hosted by Southern Californian radio station the world famous KROQ. The star packed event will transpire on December 10th at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles and feature additional performances by Blink 182, Incubus, Bush, 311 and many more.
In addition, Social Distortion has added a North American tour running throughout January and February with the amazing Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls as support.
Formed in 1979 in the working class Southern California suburb of Fullerton, Social Distortion pioneered a recharged rock 'n' roll sound merging outlaw country, classic punk and swaggering blues rock. It is a sound that has only thrived, with the band's latest album Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes proving the highest charting of their storied career with USA Today calling the band "as intense as ever."
Social Distortion has been performing to adoring crowds across the globe in support of Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, including a recent East Coast tour with the massively popular rock band Foo Fighters. Social Distortion will also be appearing December 11th at the 91X Wrex the Halls show along with Blink 182 and Pennywise, and on December 16th at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium for Goldenvoice's 30th Anniversary show with X and The Adolescents.
