The classic British punk band The Damned have signed a new deal with Search and Destroy, a joint venture between Raw Power Management and Universal’s Spinefarm Records, for their first studio album in almost a decade.

The Damned, who are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their debut album Damned Damned Damned, have not released an album since 2008’s So, Who’s Paranoid?; however, they did run a very successful PledgeMusic campaign last year that saw them raise 350% of their initial goal. No date has been announced nor has it been confirmed that the album funded last year is the one that will be released on Search and Destroy.

Craig Jennings, CEO of Raw Management, said “The Damned are one of my all-time favourite bands and a massive influence on my own musical worldview. Their impact on subsequent generations of bands cannot be underestimated and we are looking forward to releasing their first new album for almost a decade.”

Damned manager Jamal Chalabi added “There was so much enthusiasm from the guys at Search and Destroy for working with The Damned that we had no hesitation in signing to the label. They are passionate music fans who run a successful, global business and I have no doubts they will do a great job on this new album.”

The Damned formed in 1976 and still includes original members Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible along with Monty Oxymoron who joined in 1996, Pinch (1999) and Stu West (2004). To date, they have released ten studio albums with 1985’s Phantasmagoria being the biggest, peaking at 11 in the U.K.
