Flogging Molly And Social Distortion Announce North American Tour

Ready your livers, as Irish rockers Flogging Molly and blue-collar punks Social Distortion are hitting the road with The Devil Makes Three and Le Butcherettes in tow.

It’s hard to think of a band whose audience could out-rally, out-sigh, and out-drink the audience at a Flogging Molly show…but a Social Distortion crowd might be able to handle the job. Now, it looks like North America will find out, as the two bands have announced that they’re heading out on a bigass co-headlining tour, and they’re bringing The Devil Makes Three and Le Butcherettes along with them.

The jaunt kicks off in Texas and makes its way around the entire U.S., with a stop in Toronto warranting the North American’ tag. 

It’s been a long time since we’ve played a show [with Flogging Molly],” said Social D frontman Mike Ness, and the first time since 92 that Social Distortion has done a co-headline tour. It’s going to be a lot of fun and we’re all looking forward to it.”
