On the album Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, Social Distortion stretches the boundaries of their signature sound. The band’s front man Mike Ness said, “With this record I wanted to go a little further. I wanted people to hear that second track and realize, ‘Wow, this is not just another Social Distortion record.’” In fact, this is the first record that the band included female backing vocals on their tracks. Their ability to evolve has allowed them to become successful and remain relevant in a business that constantly changes. Social Distortion has concocted the perfect blend of punk, bluesy rock n’ roll and outlaw country making them the ideal way to end the summer; so celebrate the last hurrah at The Paramount on September 5th.
