Punk Legends THE DAMNED To Record New Studio Album

Punk legends THE DAMNEDDave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Monty Oxymoron, Pinch and Stu West — will head into the studio this winter to record a brand new album, their first since 2008's "So, Who's Paranoid?" Due in 2017, the effort can now be pre-ordered, with the CD, colored vinyl, as well as exclusive merch (and experiences) available at PledgeMusic. The band have also confirmed a full North American tour for next year, beginning April 6 in Los Angeles.

Cited as one of the most influential punk groups of all time, THE DAMNED contributed vastly to the gothic rock genre and influenced an entire generation of future hardcore punk bands such as BLACK FLAG and BAD BRAINS, with their fast paced energetic playing style and attitude. Along with the SEX PISTOLS and THE CLASH, they helped spearhead the punk movement in the U.K. Now, four decades and ten albums later and still on the road, they continue to wave the flag for originality, stick two fingers up to mediocrity and celebrate a DIY punk ethos in the face of plastic entertainment and scripted reality.

THE DAMNED's hugely influential classic debut single, "New Rose", celebrating its 40th anniversary this month, is being celebrated with a limited edition seven-inch anniversary release on November 4 via BMG. Featuring original artwork, picture disc and exclusive fold out poster, it's a must-have collectable release of one of the most influential records of all time.
