The Damned announce new line-up, album and tour
The Damned are currently gearing up for the release of their new album Evil Spirits in 2018. It’s due to be the band’s tenth album in their 40 year existence, and their first since 2008’s So Who’s Paranoid?
In the run-up to the album, the band have announced two exciting pieces of news – firstly, following the departure of bassist Stu West, the group have persuaded Paul Gray, who played bass with the band on their classic Black Album and its follow-up the equally good Strawberries to rejoin the group. They’ve also announced that the album will be produced by long time Bowie producer Tony Visconti (also T-Rex, Thin Lizzy, Iggy Pop, The Stranglers and far too many other cool bands to cover).
The group will be out on the road next January and February to promote the album and tickets are available from all the usual outlets.
