Social Distortion announce that they have postponed their upcoming North American headlining tour due to the stage-one tonsil cancer diagnosis of vocalist Mike Ness. As he recovers from a recent surgery, the band is also temporarily halting the recording process of their eighth studio album. The previously announced tour, set to kick off on June 30th with support from fellow California rockers The Bellrays, is now being rescheduled for future dates.
Check out the emotional statement from Ness: "We think that life is going to go according to our plan, but it has a way of saying 'I don't think so!'

The band and I were so inspired and excited to lay down these tracks, which by the way sound f-ing AWESOME! (continue)
