The Damned Things made a huge return with their first release since 2010 earlier this year, and they’re keeping the ball rolling.
The band have dropped a new animated video for their single “Something Good” which was teased shortly before High Crimes was released.
The track’s tone is a deceptive jam that covers dark undertones conveyed by its lyrics. In the video, you’ll see vocalist Keith Buckley go on a strange adventure through hell after finding a treasure map.
Buckley chatted with AP recently to discuss the new record, which is a “complete reinvention” of the Damned Things.
“We’ve come out with something that feels like the stuff [we] should’ve been writing in the first place,” Buckley says. “This is rawer, less polished and less self-aware than last time. High Crimes is fun music with a cool attitude to it.”

The band are also set to perform at the 15th anniversary of Riot Fest. They’ll be performing alongside other announced acts such as blink-182, Slayer, Bikini Kill, the Raconteurs and more.
They released another video for their track “Cells” when they announced their return.
“Normally, when career bands say they made a record for fun, they didn’t — but we actually did. Maybe that’s why this band doesn’t have a career?” Trohman said in a statement. “Anyway, we’re genuinely proud of it. Check it out, and watch the video to see how severely injured we got during the process!”
