THE DAMNED ‘EVIL SPIRITS’ LP TODAY FRIDAY THE 13TH – FIRST NEW ALBUM IN TEN YEARS
‘Evil Spirits’ is the first new album in ten years from British punk rock icons The Damned, released today via Search And Destroy / Spinefarm Records. The album is the result of a frantic, high-energy burst of creativity in October of 2017 at Atomic Sound studios in Brooklyn, recorded by legendary producer Tony Visconti and with ‘Black Album’ and ‘Strawberries’-era bassist Paul Gray back in the fold.

There’s something wonderful about the seventies sounds; glam, rock and punk records, they all sound so great and Tony specializes in beautifully crafted old school production. He had us all playing live, bashing it out in the same room with a focus on getting the initial band version of each song as close as possible to the finished thing.“
