The Damned's new album will follow their upcoming European Tour, and will introduce fans to a "a new Darkadelic universe"
Punk legends The Damned have announced that they’ll release their 12th studio album, ‘Darkadelic’, on April 28. The album is the follow-up to ‘Evil Spirits’, released in 2018, and is preceded by a single, The Invisible Man. The video can be watched below.
A statement released by the band says that ‘Invisible Man’ “swirls Captain Sensible’s trippy guitar swaths into David Vanian’s signature snarling baritone vocals in a tale of mystery and madness. It is one step beyond into a new Darkadelic universe as could only be conjured up by The Damned.”
Last November the band – featuring frontman Dave Vanian, guitarist Captain Sensible, Paul Gray on Bass and drummer Will Glanville-Taylor – announced a UK tour, which will follow a run of dates in mainland Europe.
It kicks off at Cardiff’s Great Hall on March 31, and wraps up with a pair of shows at London’s Alexandra Palace Theatre on April 20 and 21, a week prior to the album’s release. Full dates are below.
