This week the band head out on tour across the UK in support of their brand-new, Darkadelic, out 28 April. Opening their tour in Cardiff on 31 March and closing with two shows at Alexandra Palace Theatre in London on 20 & 21 April, they’ll also perform in Southend, Oxford, Nottingham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Norwich, Brighton and Southampton. Tickets on sale now here.




After the success of 2022’s Original Line-up tour and also the release of the film/album A Night Of A Thousand Vampires, which reached #1 on the UK Official Music Video Chart, The Damned current line-up have released two singles from their new album. The first insight to the new record is ‘The Invisible Man’ - a gloriously delirious video that swirls Captain Sensible’s trippy guitar swaths into David Vanian’s tale of mystery and madness. It is one step beyond into a new and Darkadelic universe…




Also the recent single ‘Beware Of The Clown’, written by founding member Captain Sensible to deride what he calls the “conveyor belt of bozos” who lead us. Produced by Tom ‘Mitch’ Mitchener, the track musically evokes two magical Damned albums, 1982’s Strawberries and 1985’s Phantasmagoria.




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.
