Supergroup the Damned Things continue to tease High Crimes, their first album since 2010, with another new single.
Setting the tempo with an infectious chant, the track’s tone is a deceptive jam that covers dark undertones conveyed by its lyrics.
Buckley chatted with AP earlier this month 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.”
High Crimes drops April 26 via Nuclear Blast Records, and preorders are available here. Check out the new song below.
