The Damned announce new album & share new video for 'Invisible Man'

 


46 years after releasing their groundbreaking debut, Damned Damned Damned, music pioneers The Damned return with DARKADELIC, their first studio album since 2018’s UK Top 10 Evil Spirits. It follows on the long dark coattails of last year’s live release A Night of a Thousand Vampires (UK #1 on Official Blu-Ray Charts) and will be released on April 28th 2023 on earMUSIC.


DARKADELIC catches the band once again evolving and expanding upon their unique universe and features some of The Damned’s sharpest song writing and genre-bending performances. Alongside Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Paul Gray and Monty Oxymoron, William Granville-Taylor joins the band on drums.

They also released the first single and video for ‘The Invisible Man’. It’s the first glimpse into the world of DARKADELIC, The Damned’s 12th studio album. Accompanied by a gloriously delirious video from director Martin Gooch, it swirls Captain Sensible’s trippy guitar swaths into David Vanian’s signature snarling baritone vocals in a tale of mystery and madness. It is one step beyond into a new Darkadelic universe as could only be conjured up by The Damned.

Following their formation in 1976, The Damned remain one of the most groundbreaking bands coming out of the 70s British punk rock scene. With 11 studio albums and several UK chart singles, the band are pioneers who rose from London to earn an ever-expanding global fan base fueled by legendary live shows. Their dark lyrics and David Vanian's rich baritone vocals also catapulted The Damned to the forefront of the Goth-Rock genre.




After touring the US with Blondie in 2022, The Damned return to the road with a European and UK tour starting March 3rd in Paris. They just announced a second show in London at the Alexandra Palace Theatre on April 21st, tickets on sale from today, Friday 3rd February at 10am, link here.
