THE DAMNED THINGS announced their long-awaited return recently with the release of their new single, ‘Cells’, off their forthcoming album High Crimes due April 26 via Nuclear Blast Records. In the first album trailer released today, guitarist Joe Trohman discusses the changes in the band’s line up and the sound of the new tunes.
The official music video for ‘Cells’ was directed by Brandon Dermer (PANIC! AT THE DISCO, NEKROGOBLIKON), can be watched here:
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.
Nine years ago, Scott Ian – guitarist and co-founder of legendary thrash metal outfit, ANTHRAX – took a meeting with 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
