The Damned Release First Album In 10 Years

The Damned are back with their first album in a decade ‘Evil Spirits’.

The Damned took to Atomic Sound studio in Brooklyn in October 2017 with producer Tony Visconti.

“We deliberately recorded the album retro style,” explains guitarist Captain Sensible. “The same way our debut album was made, basically. There’s something wonderful about the seventies sounds; glam, rock and punk records, they all sound so great and Tony specializes in beautifully crafted old school production. He had us all playing live, bashing it out in the same room with a focus on getting the initial band version of each song as close as possible to the finished thing.“

The first single is Standing On The Edge of Tomorrow.

“It’s supposed to be very optimistic, even though it’s about a dark subject,” states Dave Vanian. “As an artist, you can’t help but reflect the times, because that’s what art does. I think we always do it, but in a slightly different way. So a song like ‘Standing…’ may seem quite joyous and uplifting musically,
but some of the lyrics might be about quite dark things. That’s what I’d like to think this album is – an uplifting album, not a moaning old album – not ‘this is terrible, and that’s terrible’, and then not offering any answers. It’s more a case of, ‘If we get it together, maybe we could change things a bit”.
