"We feel that Epitaph has a natural understanding of Social Distortion; both the history of the band and the direction we want to go ... Combine that with their successful track record and it felt like a good next step for us. We've always been open to new ideas and pushing the envelope, but we have also been very conscientious about the decisions we've made. We considered a lot of options, but in the end, Epitaph feels like the right home for us. We're looking forward to taking this step forward, opening some new doors with this upcoming album and this next chapter of Social Distortion."
Once out, the new album will follow up 2004's Sex, Love and Rock 'n' Roll. The band has also announced some American tour dates.
