Legendary punk bands Bad Religion and Social Distortion have announced a co-headlining 2024 U.S. tour.

The trek will see Social Distortion performing their classic debut album Mommy’s Little Monster in its entirety to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

The trek kicks off on April 9th in Bakersfield, California, and runs through May 18th in Chicago, with support from The Lovebombs. Tickets are on sale now.

Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness revealed in June that he was battling tonsil cancer, forcing the band to cancel a planned Summer 2023 tour.

Ness stated, “It gives me great pleasure to announce that in April we will be going on a nationwide co-headlining tour with our friends in Bad Religion. Yes, we are back in action and can’t wait for this tour! We did this with them in Australia in 2022 and the shows were amazing!”

“We have also decided in celebration of the 40-year anniversary and re-release of Mommy’s Little Monster that we will be playing the album in its entirety,” he continued. “This should be a very special tour and we are all looking forward to it.”

Bad Religion singer Greg Graffin added, “Bad Religion and Social Distortion played together in 1980. Though we evolved in different directions, we both carried the torch of Southern California punk all along the way. Now we’re so excited to be on the same stage again.”
