SoCal rockers Social Distortion will return to the road in late summer, touring through Europe and North America in continued support of last year's "Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes."

The punk rockers will first head overseas to kick off a month-long European trek, which kicks off Aug. 3 in Blackpool, England, and concludes Sept. 2 in Bologna, Italy. The four-piece band, helmed by Mike Ness, will then return to North America begin the club and theater outing with an Oct. 11 performance in Chicago, IL. The major market excursion includes 15 stops before the Nov. 16 wrap-up in San Antonio, TX.

The North American leg will include support from Lindi Ortega and The Biters. Tickets for most shows are on sale now.
