Pinch to leave The Damned

Andrew Pinching, the drummer in The Damned better known as "Pinch," announced today that he will be leaving the long-running group.


In a statement, he says:


After 20 years with The Damned it’s time for me to move on. Having just fulfilled a dream playing Madison Square Garden, the upcoming London Palladium show seems like an obvious stepping off point for me. I’ve been lucky enough to meet some heroes and play shows with legendary bands and amazing characters. I send my love to my band mates past and present as well as everyone in the Damned organization and wish them all the best for the future.


Up the Punks.
Pinch


Pinch's final show with The Damned takes place at London Palladium on October 27.
