Formed in 1979, California punk rock band Social D has earned remarkable staying power despite releasing only seven full-length albums. Although it's been eight years since their last album, frontman Mike Ness is sharpening a bundle of new material with new label Epitaph Records, even though there's no set release date.

Rugged Celtic rockers Flogging Molly also hail from California, but broke out as a band two decades after Social D. Dave King fronts the group that most recently dropped album "Life Is Good," in 2017.
