The Damned Things Announce US Tour in May

The Damned Things

The true lords of chaos, The Damned Things, have announced they’ll make their long-awaited return to the stage for a U.S. tour in May in support of their upcoming album, High Crimes, that’s due April 26 via Nuclear Blast Records. The month long excursion will kick off on May 1st with an intimate and undoubtedly unruly show at The Whisky in Los Angeles and will wrap in San Diego on May 25th.

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. The music video for “Cells,” directed by Brandon Dermer (Panic! At the Disco, Nekrogoblikon), can be watched here:

Nine years ago, Scott Ian – guitarist and co-founder of legendary thrash metal outfit, Anthrax – took a meeting with the 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
