THE DAMNED - THE EVIL SPIRITS TOUR British punk legends The Damned return in 2018 with new material and an extensive UK tour. This comes over 40 years since their initial explosion across the fledgling London punk scene, and some 10 years since the release of their last studio recordings. The band’s UK tour starts on January 26th and due to popular demand, they have added an extra date at London Koko on Feb 16th. Main support comes from fabled Stray Cats drummer Slim Jim Phantom, whilst American ‘operatic-punk’ performer Kristeen Young will support the show at Koko. Also joining the tour is former Damned bass player Paul Gray and the news of this reunion has been greeted with much excitement from the band’s dedicated fan base. Paul was part of the band for two incredible albums during the early-80s (‘The Black Album’, ‘Strawberries’). “I wasn’t the best bassist in the band... by a long way,” says Captain Sensible. “That was Paul, The Damned, Eddie & The Hot Rods, UFO; listen to that playing, the bloke is a master of his instrument and it’s great to have him back for the tour.”Having last released new material in 2008 with their ‘So, Who’s Paranoid?’ album, 2018 will see the unveiling of a hugely-anticipated new album. Recorded in New York by famed producer Tony Visconti, whose list of past working-relationships reads like a who’s who of popular music (David Bowie, T-Rex, Morrissey, U2, The Stranglers, Iggy Pop and Thin Lizzy to name but a few!), the band have signed a new deal with Search And Destroy/Spinefarm Records and are set to stun the music world once again with their dizzying blend of high-energy punk rock, creative psychedelic pop and classic songwriting. “Our new Tony Visconti produced album, as with all previous Damned records, very much has its own sound,” continues Captain. “We’re looking forward to having an element of that mixed in with the old faves.”
