Having first performed together in 1980, veteran Southern California punk outfits Bad Religion and Social Distortion will embark on a North American tour next spring. The outing begins April 9 in Bakersfield, Ca., and concludes May 19 in Columbus, Oh. Pre-sale tickets will be available at noon ET today (Dec. 12) through and with the codes SUFFER, BALLANDCHAIN and SPIN.

The groups previously teamed for a handful of shows in Australia earlier this year. “I loved Social Distortion as a kid, and I love ‘em even more now,” Bad Religion guitarist Brian Baker says. “I am thrilled and honored to be sharing stages with them this fall. This is one for the history books, folks.” Adds bassist Jay Bentley, “that we’re both still making music and touring the world is a testament to the staying power of SoCal punk rock.”

At the 2024 shows, Social Distortion will perform its 1983 debut album Mommy’s Little Monster in its entirety in a belated celebration of its 40th anniversary. Says frontman Mike Ness, “this should be a very special tour and we are all looking forward to it.”

Earlier this year, Ness revealed that he was diagnosed with throat cancer. The singer has provided updates on his condition in a series of Instagram posts. Before the diagnosis, Social Distortion was in the process of recording their eighth studio album, which will resume at some point next year.
