The Damned Things have announced their first new album in almost a decade with a new song and music video.
The rock supergroup has released a video for their first single off the album High Crimes called “Cells.”
The Damned Things recently revealed a new lineup comprised of Every Time I Die‘s Keith Buckley, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley of Fall Out Boy, Anthrax guitar god Scott Ian and Alkaline Trio bassist Dan Andriano.
The album will be released April 26 and is the band’s follow up to their 2009 debut Ironiclast.
“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!”
Last August, Ian teased about the possibility of a new record from the band.
“We always knew with the Damned Things, it was always going to be something that we would get to do schedules permitting because we are all in extremely busy bands. But look, we’re all friends and we’re all in contact with each other on a regular basis and I can say that there is, possibly, a record, but that’s all I’m going to say about it [laughs].”
Well it looks like we’re finally getting that long-awaited album after all.
