In two weeks, one of the most beloved and iconic punk rock bands of all time, The Damned, embark on their first full U.S. tour since the release of their critically acclaimed ‘Evil Spirits’, the Tony-Visconti-produced album (and their first full length LP in 10 years). The record became their first ever UK Top 10 album in their 41-year career, heading straight into the charts at #7.
The band have been touring non-stop since the release of ‘Evil Spirits’ and released singles and videos that included ‘Standing On The Edge Of Tomorrow’, featuring up-to-the-minute garage psychedelia that gallops like Scott Walker’s ‘The Seventh Seal’ and the second single “Look Left “which showcased The Damned at their most epic and grandiose.
Additionally, the band will join Danzig’s 30th anniversary celebration on Saturday, November 3 at the Fivepoint Amphitheater in Irvine, California. This special one-time show is Danzig’s only 2018 California appearance, and follows The Damned’s November 2nd show at the Henry Fonda Theatre.
The greatest surviving British punk band are still firing on all cylinders and breaking all the rules. Where their peers either burnt out or faded away into mediocrity, this most spiritually chaotic of all punk groups have never been away, never surrendered their ideals, always forged onwards. Colourful, anarchic, yet propelled by an indefatigable creative motor, they’ve expanded their remit with every phase, to become one of the top-flight UK groups of ANY pop era.
