Portugal's WE ARE THE DAMNED has inked a deal with Lifeforce Records. The band's third album, "Doomvirate", will be released at the end of May.

Coming from an unlikely source like Portugal, WE ARE THE DAMNED has been building its path since 2007 by the hand of singer Correia and drummer Lafaia. Both musicians have been around since the early '90s and their sheer artistic convictions still prevail on a solid DIY philosophy. The band continues to deliever its unique blend of straightforward punk and metal.

After releasing the "Metal Classics" EP in 2009 and the debut album, "Resurrection Plague", in 2010, both on Ragingplanet, the band made an impact with the second full-length, "Holy Beast", a concept album based on religious corruption and false dogmas, released in 2011 on Ragingplanet and Bastardized Recordings and produced by Ulf Blomberg (END OF ALL, INEVITABLE END, EXHALE). A few lineup changes took place in 2012 after the "Holy Beast" cycle was completed, and core members Correia and Lafaia were back in the studio to complete the "Metal Classics Vol. 2" EP sessions, released later that year again on Ragingplanet. In the meantime the band kept performing live constantly and regularly until 2013.

2013 started with the third album already in the making, once again with Correia and Lafaia being the core members alongside new guitarist Miguel Correia they gave birth to "Doomvirate", another concept album this time based upon human and social rights and political corruption, produced by Fernando Matias (MOONSPELL, SINISTRO) and the bandmembers themselves.
