Mike Ness of Social Distortion reveals when the band hopes to start recording for new album

Mike Ness did an interview with SanLuisObispo and spoke about the new album.

He hopes to start recording in the studio by Spring 2019.

Mike also talked about how he is the protege to Jade Jackson who his wife convinced him to work with and just helped her on her album.  This is what he said:

“I’ve never had anyone listen to me like there was no tomorrow. She just really listens,” Ness said of Jackson, who credits a 2005 Social Distortion concert with inspiring her to become a professional musician. “What’s amazing about her is she’s just a prolific songwriter. She makes me look bad.”

“I didn’t just want to put her in an alt-country box. … I don’t want to make her the next Loretta Lynn when she’s got so many styles,” Ness said of Jackson. “(Her music) sounds young and it sounds hip, and let’s keep it that way.”

Social Distortion is currently on tour and here is their setlist from the July 17 show according to Setlist FM:

  1. Encore:
  2. (Johnny Cash cover)
  3. (Merle Kilgore cover)
