I was STOKED when I got this press release this morning.
In early spring, The Damned signed a new label deal with Search and Destroy and announced plans for their 11th studio album. The time has FINALLY come! The Damned will start recording this October in Brooklyn with famed Producer Tony Visconti. Visconti produced some of the greatest albums of all time from David Bowie, T.Rex, Morrisey, U2, The Sranglers, Iggy Pop, and more.
There will also be a line up change. The Damned announced the bitter sweet news of the departure of their bassist Stu West, however, former bassist Paul Gray who played with The Damned during the 80’s will be on the new album.
The Damned have a UK tour set for early 2018, maybe they’ll hop the pond and do a US tour. We can only hope!
