Social Distortion To Play One-off UK Show This Summer 2011

Following the release of their seventh studio album, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, rock 'n' roll icons Social Distortion have announced a show at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire. This special one-off date will take place on July 7th.

The band's recent album Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes builds on singer Mike Ness' twin footings, one in the haunted American landscapes of Hank Williams and the other in the raw swagger of Exile-era Rolling Stones. While these twin pillars have always been behind Social Distortion's anthemic songs, on Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes they come roaring to the fore, in one of the hardest rocking, most soulful, albums of Ness' career.

The band's first album in over six years has entered German album charts at #3 ( highest chart entry in band's career ever!), surpassing 2004's Sex, Love and Rock 'n' Roll by 45 positions. In Sweden at # 11, the album had the highest new entry of the week, while in Finland it was the highest new entry at # 6 and the highest foreign act on the chart. In Switzerland Austria and Norway, where the band had no previous chart entries, the album debuted in top 20.

Social Distortion continued the victory in their home territory and gained the highest chart entry in band's career - #4 in US Billboard Top 200. Their highest entry before that was 1996's major label release White Light, White Heat, White Trash, which debuted at #27.

Fans of Social Distortion should be sure not to miss this one-off performance, which captures the band touring their excellently received seventh album. Tickets will be priced £22.50
