THE DAMNED announce November UK tour dates + Evil Spirits at 7 in the charts!

THE DAMNED announce November UK tour dates + Evil Spirits at 7 in the charts!

The Damned TourThis week, The Damned are currently occupying the number seven position in the Official UK Album Charts with their new album ‘Evil Spirits’, released last week via Search and Destroy/Spinefarm Records. It’s a big achievement for the punk rock born British legends, who, despite huge success in the seventies and eighties, never quite made the top ten, narrowly missing the chance in 1985 when ‘Phantasmagoria’ peaked at number 11.

The huge swell of support from their fans, critics and aficionados however, has propelled the Tony Visconti produced ‘Evil Spirits’ to the top and has shown the world just how relevant, forty-one years after their inception, The Damned still are. Never ones to play safe, the band always retained the energy of punk but were never content to stay within those narrow confines and ‘Evil Spirits’ continues on that progressive journey.

The Damned started 2018 with a sprawling UK tour in January and February with former member Paul Gray back on bass, and they will end the year with another run of UK shows in November where the band will get the chance to set free their Evil Spirits at the following dates, including a performance at the prestigious London O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on November 23rd.
