Glendale, CA – The Love Ride Foundation today announced that Social Distortion have been added to the star-studded lineup headlined by Foo Fighters in a benefit concert to support Wounded Warrior Project. The show will take place outdoors at Castaic Lake, 41 miles North of Los Angeles on Sunday October 18, 2015.
With a career spanning over 30 years, Social Distortion has virtually patented their unique sound, a brand of rock n’ roll that’s cut with rockabilly/punk, blues and outlaw country. Now playing such venerable festivals as Austin City Limits, Coachella, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds – their searing guitars and locomotive rhythm section sound more alive today than ever before. With an expected sell-out, Social Distortion fans are encouraged to secure tickets soon. Ride information, registration or concert-only tickets are available exclusively at www.LoveRide.org. Purchase in advance and save $15 off the door.
“We’ve wanted to be a part of the Love Ride for years now, so we are stoked that our friends the Foo Fighters asked us to be involved for the final ride; which makes it bitter sweet.
Founder Oliver Shokouh and the Love Ride Foundation have done an amazing job over the years raising money and awareness for many great organizations, so we’re looking forward to contributing to this year’s effort and doing our part in raising awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project. This incredible group of people assists our wounded service members with their injuries, illness’, create support networks, help with their transition back into civilian life and more. We’re honored to be performing this year and we’re looking forward to a great day of rock ’n’ roll for a great cause.” – Mike Ness, Social Distortion
