(PRWEB) October 12, 2005 -- Social Distortion is back with an inspired new album writes Music Matters’ Jen Hilbert. After the tragic loss of guitarist and cofounder Dennis Danell five years ago, frontman Mike Ness is still doing it his way as he wrangles the difficult emotions of losing his close friend and bandmate into what is, “quite possibly, the best album Social D has ever produced.”Their latest recording, called Sex, Love and Rock and Roll, maintains the integrity of the Social Distortion sound, sticking with the formula that brought the band success for the last 27 years.

The music is timeless poetry put to music, writes Hilbert, who says that Social Distortion’s songs, “offer a musical shoulder to lean on and the inspiration that’s often required to overcome adversity.”Joining Ness on the new album, are guitarist Jonny Wickersham, drummer Charlie Quintana, and longtime Social Distortion bassist John Maurer.

Over the last three decades Ness beat drug addiction, got married, had kids, and lost a dear friend, but, he survived the journey and continues to make great music and increase Social Distortion’s fan base every year.

Not to be taken for granted, Hilbert hails Social Distortion as a legendary band in both American music and in rock and roll history.MusicMatters Magazine is a monthly, four color, glossy publication dedicated to music, art and culture in Southern California.
