The Damned (Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Monty Oxymoron, Pinch, and Stu West) will be heading into the studio this winter to record a brand new album, their first since 2008's 'So, Who's Paranoid?', for release in 2017, with a pre-order link for the CD, colored vinyl, as well as exclusive merch (and experiences) available at PledgeMusic. The band have also confirmed a full North American tour, beginning April 6th in Los Angeles.
Cited as one of the most influential punk groups of all time, The Damned contributed vastly to the gothic rock genre and influenced an entire generation of future hardcore punk bands such as Black Flag and Bad Brains, with their fast paced energetic playing style and attitude. Along with the Sex Pistols and The Clash, they helped spearhead the punk movement in the UK. Now, four decades and ten albums later and still on the road, they continue to wave the flag for originality, stick two fingers up to mediocrity and celebrate a DIY punk ethos in the face of plastic entertainment and scripted reality. The band's hugely influential classic debut single, 'New Rose', celebrating its 40th anniversary this month, is being celebrated with a limited edition 7” anniversary release on November 4th via BMG. Featuring original artwork, picture disc and exclusive fold out poster, it's a must have collectable release of one of the most influential records of all time.
