Sole Heartbreakers’ survivor Walter Lure presents new track ‘Damn Your Soul’
Walter Lure & The Waldos present ‘Damn Your Soul’ aheads of releasing their new album ‘Wacka Lacka Boom Bop A Loom Bam Boo’. This is the first new album in 2 1/2 decades from legendary guitarist-vocalist Walter Lure, an original member of The Heartbreakers, who spearheaded the first wave of punk rock, and also long-time collaborator with The Ramones. The Heartbreakers were also the band that supported the Sex Pistols on their 1976 Anarchy Tour just as the UK punk scene was building momentum.
The new album will be released on Cleopatra Records on both CD and red vinyl with reverse-board jackets, as well as digitally.
“This is my first release of new songs in 25 years or so since the last Waldo’s album. That might seem like a long time but it really only feels like a few years-life seems to contract over long periods for some reason,” says Walter Lure.
