THE DAMNED THINGS TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM, ‘HIGH CRIMES,’ ON APRIL 26TH PRE-ORDER THE RECORD NOW WATCH THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “CELLS”
THE DAMNED THINGS announce their long-awaited return with today’s release of their new single, “Cells,” off their forthcoming album High Crimes due April 26 via Nuclear Blast Records. Pre-order High Crimes in both digital and physical formats from this location: nuclearblast.com/thedamnedthings-highcrimes.
High Crimes was produced by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR, AMON AMARTH) and is the follow up to 2010’s hugely successful debut album, Ironiclast. The music video for “Cells,” directed by Brandon Dermer (PANIC! AT THE DISCO, NEKROGOBLIKON), can be watched here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKdULf6iCng
“Normally, when career bands say they made a record for fun, they didn’t – but we actually did. Maybe that’s why this band doesn’t have a career?” said THE DAMNED THINGS’ Joe Trohman. “Anyway, we’re genuinely proud of it. Check it out, and watch the video to see how severely injured we got during the process!”
Nine years ago, Scott Ian – guitarist and co-founder of legendary thrash metal outfit, ANTHRAX – took a meeting with the Joe Trohman (also a guitarist, and a co-founder, of the band FALL OUT BOY). He and Scott hit it off, and started making songs together. With the help of drummer Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy) and the irreverent vocals of Keith Buckley (EVERY TIME I DIE), THE DAMNED THINGS were formed. The band has gone through changes since its inception and now features Dan Andriano of ALKALINE TRIO on bass.
THE DAMNED THINGS are: Dan Andriano – Bass Keith Buckley – Vocals Scott Ian – Guitar Andy Hurley – Drums Joe Trohman – Guitar
